- The Wilson snaffle is traditionally a driving bit for horses, but is occasionally used on riding horses too.The Wilson bit has four rings, the inside two attach to the cheek pieces and the outside two to the reins. The action is similar to that of a Scourier bit. A strong squeezing action to the horse’s face occurs when rein pressure is applied. Otherwise it has a traditional jointed mouthpiece albeit a thin mouthpiece.This bit is only suitable for experienced and sympathetic riders due to the potential severity of its action.This mouthpiece is a correctional mouthpiece, a ported mouthpiece that collapses on to the outer lip and bars, and rotates on to the tongue. The port has a tiered design; the base is generously wide with rounded corners, offering virtually the same comfort and tongue relief of a Level 3 mouthpiece, while the top is narrower and has pronounced corners. If the horse is relaxed, the tongue can pass comfortably under the wide opening. When the reins are engaged, the mouthpiece collapses on to the bars and lips and rotates on to the tongue. The pronounced corners of the port apply two points of pressure on the tongue for increased control. The result is a mouthpiece that offers maximum tongue relief for the horse, but very good control for the rider
