Shires Sweet Iron Loose Ring with Copper Lozenge encourages salivation or relaxation.
The sweet iron and copper combination used in this training bit provides a warm bit for the horse which encourages salivation and emits a pleasant taste.
Stainless steel is the most common material for bits. Durable, easy to clean, tasteless and it does not rust. Sweet iron mouthpieces are designed to oxidize to produce a sweet taste which helps with mouthing. Copper ribs and inserts will encourage mouthing but also ensure the horse will not take up too much of a contact, ideal for horses that can take a hold.
