What is the Dexter Snaffle Bit?
Category of Bit: Snaffle
Action: The large ring encircles the jaw which greatly improves steering and prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. Used in conjunction with a jointed mouthpiece the Dexter Snaffle has a nutcracker action though this is reduced from a straightforward jointed bit by the large ring which is usually attached in three places to the mouthpiece
Advantages: The Dexter greatly improves steering and is popular as a racing bit for hard pullers. Greatly reduces the risk of the bit being pulled through the mouth.
