Smooth Snaffle Performance Bit
6" Cheek

The 6" Cheek/Snaffle bit is perfect for moving a colt from an O-Ring to a shank bit or for light, well broke older horses. Soft pressure is applied through the curb to the horse's chin, the bars and corners of the mouth, and the tongue.  The softest of all shank bit styles.

The 6" cheek has a 1-1/2" purchase and a 3-1/2" shank.  This ratio (the difference in length of the purchase and shank) and the swept-back design of the shank make this a mild cheek.  Contact with the horse's mouth comes slowly in the form of soft pressure to all points of contact.  The main point of contact is the corners of the mouth, which is a familiar spot from the O-Ring.  This bit may also be used with a training fork or martingale to encourage collection and poll control.  The mouthpiece is inlaid with copper to stimulate salvation.  The mouthpiece is 5-1/8" wide, 3/8" in diameter, and curved to shape to the corner of the mouth for soft, evenly distributed pressure to the bars, tongue, and corners of the mouth.
