Sweet Iron with Copper Rollers
Shires Sweet Iron and Copper combination provides the horse with a warm and pleasant tasting bit.
The roller in the centre is rough creating an uneven surface, which increases the bits severity. The raised copper ribs can help to prevent the horse taking too much of a hold. Mouthpiece thickness: 14mm. Cheek height: 65mm.
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.
