The Fat French link increases surface area and decreases direct pressure (when compared to the Smooth Tongue French Link). The mouthpiece makes for flawless and smooth communication whilst the bit moves from left to right and slides over the tongue - without creating a nutcracker effect or any pain/pressure points. It has been carefully designed to fit beautifully in the corners of the mouth and the bars/tongue.
The Fat French Link maintains a good weight despite being thinner enabling the rider to give instant reward through release of pressure.
4 ring gives slightly more ability to utilise leverage compared to the 3 ring.
When mouthing, schooling or correcting a young horse (in an English riding fashion with 2 hands) this bit moves smoothly over the tongue giving the rider every opportunity to have flawless communication.
Horses at any age and any stage - we particularly like using it when schooling and for young horses.
