This snaffle is part of Herm Sprenger's KK Ultra line. These bits have a middle link, called the bean or peanut, that is shortened and rotated resulting in even and constant contact for clear communication and maximum acceptance. They are designed to accommodate a narrower palate.
We're riders ourselves, so we understand that bit fitting is not always easy and can get a bit confusing. We would be happy to help you, please call or email us with any questions; we are your friendly neighborhood tack shop online.
