The MAX-Control Full Cheek Snaffle is a good choice for any horse that is ridden in a snaffle but needs guidance for straightness and to hold a line.

This is a double-jointed bit, with a lozenge centre which, at first glance, looks like any other double-jointed snaffle. However, the ingenious design of the bit enables it to lock at the joints and become rigid at certain angles.

When the horse is working correctly, the bit lies comfortably in the mouth, but whenever the horse comes against the rider’s hand, or opposes the contact in any way, the more intensive rigid ‘locking’ effect comes into play.

Because of this, in addition to their role as everyday bits, the MAX-Control models can rightly be regarded as training, or correctional bits. The training happens in the most ideal way, with the horse discovering for himself that to work correctly is comfortable and to oppose the rider is not!

The horse very quickly learns how to release the locking effect by yielding to the contact and remaining soft in the hand.

An enormous asset in the training of horses that run through the contact, are ridden in a snaffle but can be strong at times, or are big horses ridden by small lady riders.

We also have the MAX-Control loose ring snaffle and the 3-Type bit, please click on the sub-category ‘Sprenger MAX-Control bits’ in our shop to view the different models.
