The locking centre joint and curved mouthpiece of the Lock Up Snaffle is designed to remove the nutcracker action of a conventional single jointed snaffle.
The mouthpiece cannot bend beyond a certain point, so it remains in a curve in the mouth, rather than forming a V shape that could rub the top of the horses palate.
This bit has been TRIED ON ONCE....! and is in "as new" condition. (RRP £82)
