The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity, the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more, which in turn will encourage a better acceptance of the bit. The process of rusting (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to a brownish-grey. This is the desired effect of the Sweet Iron bits. If a Sweet Iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may form on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.

Sweet Iron bits are suitable for all horses. Sweet Iron helps the horse to salivate more, which will encourage a better acceptance of the bit.

The Sweet Iron collection has the most variation in mouthpieces, each with its own specific effect.

An arched mouthpiece is a straight mouthpiece that is slightly bent. This mouthpiece exert even pressure on the complete tongue. An arched mouthpiece has a sharper effect than a jointed or eliptical mouthpiece. If the horse needs more freedom of the tongue then there are mouthpieces with various degrees of tongue freedom available: the low port and the medium port.

This bit comes with the curb chain attached.
