The Shires Blue Sweet Iron Bevel with Roller Link bit is an increasingly popular bit among hunter/jumper riders for its ability to create light leverage in a gentle snaffle bit. The blue sweet metal bits are known to increase salivation due to producing a taste that horses love, resulting in gradual oxidization turning the bright blue hue to a rich coppery finish. Brass roller rings stimulate connection allowing the horse something to play with, making this a common bit among soft-mouthed or greener horses.
