Wilson Snaffle Bit. The Wilson Snaffle has four loose rings – two attached to each end of the mouthpiece, with two additional “inside” rings. The cheek pieces of the bridle are fitted to the inside rings, while the reins are fitted to the outside two. The bit works with a squeezing action on the cheeks rather than on the corners of the mouth. The Wilson can give superb control and “turning power” for a hard-pulling horse, while not being overly severe.
- This bit is most commonly seen on driving horses, although it can be used for riding.
- Riders/Drivers use the bit, as they feel it gives them more control with a horse that pulls.
- Has two sets of rings
- Works on the bars of the mouth
- Slightly more severe than a loose ring snaffle when the are reins attached to both rings.
- Severity is increased greatly if the reins are only attached to the outside rings.
- The headstall of the bridle can be attached to the two loose rings.
- When the reins are pulled, the two inside rings squeeze the sides of the horse’s cheeks rather than just on the horse’s lips or jaws.
- There is a nutcracker effect inside of the horse’s mouth.
