Full Cheek offers long and extended arms above and below the mouthpiece with a ring attached to it. The cheeks have a good lateral guiding effect which enhances the response of the horse on the outside rein when riding bends and circles. The leverage effect is not very high. It can be increased however when used with bit keepers, which keep the bit more fixed in the mouth. Full-cheek-snaffles have proven to be especially good for training young horses and lungeing work.
Have your horse feel no pressure on the palate with the double broken Snaffle. Balanced weight distribution on tongue and jaw so the horse can easily be ridden on the bit. No nutcracker-effect and more forgiving to mistakes caused by a rider’s strong hand or pulling on the reins.
The Copper promotes better acceptance because it encourages the horse to chew, thus enhancing the saliva production.
