The Shires French Link Sliding Gag is a stainless steel bit with a copper french link in the middle of the mouthpiece. This gentle mouthpiece spreads pressure across the tongue, and ensures the leverage action of the bit cheeks does not apply pressure to the palate of the horse’s mouth. The copper link encourages salivation by oxidizing in the horse’s mouth and giving off an appealing tart taste. This link is supported by tasteless and odourless stainless steel side pieces. The balance of the two metals is ideal, with the horse receiving the benefits of copper without damaging it. Because it is a softer metal, this mouthpiece has the two side pieces, which are vulnerable to damage by the horse’s teeth, made of sturdy stainless steel instead. The bit cheeks have leverage action that gives more control and assists in raising the head carriage of a horse. Both the upper and lower rings are extended out on a shank, offering more leverage than a two ring gag. The cheekpieces of the bridle are attached to the top rings, applying pressure to the horse’s poll when there is rein pressure. A second set of reins could be attached to the lower ring, exerting more leverage than just the snaffle rein. The Shires French Link Sliding Gag is available in different sizes.
