The loose brass alloy discs in the centre can help to soothe a fussy tongued horse. Mouthpiece thickness: 15mm. Cheek height: 55mm (4.5, 5), 65mm (5.5). Blue sweet iron mouthpieces oxidise easily to create warmth with a sweet taste which helps with bit acceptance and encourages salivation. Please note the blue colour will fade with use.
