D-Ring Snaffle Bits
D-ring snaffle bits are the popular choice in the hunter show ring. These keep the snaffle from sliding through the horse’s mouth and gives just enough control. The shape of the bit rings prevent corners of the mouth from being pinched. This bit is similar to the egg-butt snaffle.
Gentle control and classic good looks are the trademarks of this bit. D-ring bits can also include a straight bar, double joint, twist, rubber or copper mouthpiece. These are a compromise between an eggbutt and a full cheek snaffle. They have vertical shanks that extend above and below the mouthpiece. Always check that your horse is comfortable with his bit, to ensure comfort and the best performance at all times. Browse our full range below.
