Developed in conjunction with world-renowned trainer and jockey John Patterson, JP Bits provide the utmost comfort for your horse. Unlike regular jointed snaffle's nearly straight mouthpiece sections, JP bits have a unique curved shaped that eliminates the interference that conventional bits can cause. All JP bit feature curved bars that prevent the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and eliminate the nutcracker-like action that can pinch the horse's tongue. Gently twisting bars encourage heavy-mouthed horses to soften. Curved mouthpiece encourages relaxation.
