Trust Sweet Iron Full Cheek Gag Waterford
The full cheek gag stimulates the horse to bring its head up. It is often used with horses that run behind the bit and don’t follow the hand as much as necessary. The bit can be used with one or two reins or with pelham straps. In most cases, the bit is used with two reins, one is normally attached to the bit and the other rein to the end of the gag straps.
A waterford mouthpiece consists of a series of rounded links. It is a flexible bit that forms towards the horse’s mouth and creates an even pressure. It can move in all directions making it difficult for the horse to lean on the bit so that the rider retains proper control. This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders. In soft hands this mouthpiece is friendly but with a strong hand the bit can be sharp.
