Features Poponcini Bits

Poponcini Bits are made in Italy. These bits are distinguished by having an extremely soft mouthpiece. A Poponcini bit is made of a steel wire, and a brass bushing at the ends. A plastic layer is cast around. Then a special silicone layer is applied, by hand, that is not toxic to your horse. This assembly ensures optimum comfort for the horse's mouth.

The line of Poponcini bits made of this soft material, is also known as the HARMONY line.

Why should you choose a Poponcini bit of the HARMONY line?

A horse with a sore mouth can not relax. Ordinary mouthpieces can have this effect. With the mouthpieces from Harmony, a horse will immediately relax and working with a relaxed horse will be a pleasure for rider and horse! Due to this typical form of this mouthpiece, a horse will be able to close his mouth easily, so he will be  much calmer with his head and tongue.

NOTE: Because Poponcini bits are so soft, we give no warranty on these bits!

A bit manufactured from this type of plastic / silicone has a lower durability than a bit with a metal base.

Description Loose ring snaffle:

A Loose ring snaffle is a basic bit with round, loose bit rings. This bit is accepted by most of the horses because the mouthpiece lays independent of the bit rings. The mouthpiece can be single-, double-jointed or straight and can be made of various materials. The snaffle is soft when the mouthpiece is thick and of soft material. The bit becomes sharper when the mouthpiece gets thinner and the material harder.

Often rubber bit guards are used. These ensure that the lips do not become trapped between bit and ring. A Loose ring snaffle should also be a little wider than any another bits because the bit rings move independently and there must be enough space for the rubber bit guards.

A loose ring snaffle is suitable for many horses and riders. The thinner the bit, the more experienced the horse and rider must be to use this.

Description rubber/plastic bit:

A rubber bit can be flexible, but also can contain a hard core. The flexible rubber bit has a steel wire running through is, so the bit can not break. The flexible bit is softer. Black rubber has the disadvantage that if a horse has a drier mouth, the bit gets hot by friction and then can burn on the tongue. When a horse produces enough saliva, a rubber bit is the softer variant of a metal bit. The plastic variant (Beris, Happy Mouth) is smoother and doesn’t have this problem.

Features straight / unjointed mouthpiece:

A unjointed bit/straight bit often works sharper than a single or double jointed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines the pressure in the mouth. A straight mouth piece with tongue port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free. The straighter and thicker the mouthpiece, the more pressure on the tongue.
