TRUST Sweet Iron Full Cheek Waterford Gag


Designed for strong horses that pull and can be diffiucult to turn, the TRUST Sweet Iron Full Cheek Waterford Gag bit helps to encourage the horse to keep its head up. This bit is often used with two reins, one on the bit itselt and one set of reins on the “gag cheeks” for immediate action.

The Waterford mouthpiece is fluid and minimizes the ability for a horse to lean or get heavy on the forehand.

The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity, the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more, which in turn will encourage a better acceptance of the bit. The process of rusting (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to a brownish-grey. This is the desired effect of the Sweet Iron bits. If a Sweet Iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may form on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.
