The Shires Loose Ring Copper Lozenge Snaffle Bit has loose rings to discourage the horse from leaning on the bit whilst the lozenge softens the contact and the copper helps encourage mouthing. Bits with a lozenge are good for horses with larger tongues or smaller mouths as the double joint helps to reduce the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit, this creates more space in the mouth for the tongue. The double joint is often favoured by horses as the lack of palette pressure makes the bit more comfortable and relieves pressure on the horses bars. The lozenge snaffle is very similar to the french link but the smooth central lozenge gives a slightly more positive action on the tongue than the flat plate of the french link.

If your looking for something a little stronger than a snaffle but want to keep the Copper Lozenge then take a look at the Shires Two Ring Copper Lozenge Gag.
