Why choose a fulmer snaffle for your horse?
The fulmer snaffle is a loose ring variation of the full cheek bit. Loose rings make the bit much more moveable in the horse’s mouth, which is suited to horses that need the assistance of a full cheek but also have a tendency to lean or fix on the bit. This bit can be used with keepers on the bridle to help keep the cheeks vertical.
The winged, full cheek shanks assist with steering whilst the single jointed mouthpiece has a lifting action and applies pressure across the lips and bars of the mouth. Made from stainless steel, which is the most common material used for horse bits, it is durable, easy to clean, tasteless and does not rust.
As per our size guide the A & B measurements of this bit are as follows:
B=180mm (shank) 55mm (ring)
Stainless Steel Horse Bits
Stainless steel is the most commonly used material for horse bits as it is durable, easy to clean and does not rust. Some of our stainless steel bits feature copper mouthpieces which help to create a warming sensation and encourage the horse to salivate and accept the bit. Stainless steel bits are suitable for a wide range of horses and are available in many designs so that you can choose the right bit for your horse and discipline.
