The Robart Victory Sweet Iron Snaffle Bit is a shank snaffle with the design of the Victory series of bits on the shanks. The mouthpiece is made of appealing sweet iron, making it more appealing to hold for many horses in their mouth. Shank snaffles work with a nutcracker action, as do traditional snaffles with bit rings, but the leverage and restriction because of the shanks causes this action to be downwards toward the tongue. The joint presses into the tongue, causing a significant central pressure on the tongue. Many horses will respond by tossing their head and feeling frustrated when this bit is used by inexperienced riders. The sweet iron mouthpiece is a great feature of this bit. Sweet iron is a metal alloy composed of a combination of black iron with copper. This alloy oxidizes, or quite literally, rusts, in the mouth of the horse. It is completely non-toxic, and happens slowly, but this oxidization releases a sweet taste, giving the name. Many horses LOVE the taste. This bit will discolour because of the process of oxidation, but remain strong and durable. The shanks are angled back toward the rider, softening the leverage action and decreasing the response time. The outside of the bit shanks are decorated with engraved silver and stainless steel studs in a beautiful vintage pattern.
