A functional bit at an affordable price, the Shires Mullen Mouth Blue Alloy Dee Bit is a great option for schooling as well as competition and is a must-have for your tack room. The traditional d-ring cheek piece gives this bit a classic finish suitable for any a variety of disciplines.
The mullen mouthpiece puts even pressure directly onto the tongue instead of the more sensitive bars, making it ideal for sensitive horses and situations where a high degree of lateral flexion is not required. A small center port allows for ergonomic tongue relief. With the addition of sweet iron, this bit encourages salivation and provides a pleasant taste.
Please Note: The rusting (oxidation) process will change the blue surface of the bit to a brownish orange/grey color. This is natural, and can be removed by simply wiping with a damp cloth. If the bit will be used infrequently, oxidation between use can be minimized by application of baking soda paste on the mouth and wiping clean after each use.
