Light enough to ride every day with enough "bite" to school horse when needed. This is a low leverage bit. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina, which creates a sweet taste for the horse, making the bit more acceptable and increasing salivation for a supple mouth. Mullen relief mouthpiece creates even pressure across the bars and tongue to eliminate the nutcracker effect.
Stage A bits are great for starting horses, training, or maintaining steady contact. Aspects include direct reining, non-leverage loose rings and dee rings with mouthpiece diameters 5/16" and over.
