- Encourages chewing, salivation and relaxation into the contact.
- The mullen style can help with horses that are overly fussy in the mouth by giving them less to play with.

- The mouthpiece is gently shaped and with some bend and give, as well as being allergy free.
- Cheekpieces made from stainless steel for durability.

Bits by Nathe: for flexible and sensitive schooling and training.

Beautiful & soft
Written by emma heath on Jun 12, 2017

Love this bit, and so does my TB. He's very sensitive in the mouth but in this bit, he's much happier to accept contact. A friend recommended it and it's worth every cent.

Lovely soft bit with easy control

This bit arrived quickly and couldn't wait to use it. My young horse relaxed straight away and responded well to the new bit. His mouth is very sensitive, so this bit is super soft and he loves it.

So much more than just a snaffle

My horse loves it. I love it. What more can you want. Beautiful snug fit, kind on his little mouth, and solid enough to provide extra control when I need it.

Problem solved

My 5yo mare has been very unsteady in her contact since she was started. I have tried numerous bits, tending towards the thicker snaffles as she is very sensitive, but none permitted a positive steady connection. I ordered the Nathe bit on the Tuesday before Christmas, thinking I could have quite a wait, but it was delivered first thing Thursday morning! Wow, great service! She is really happy in the new bit. I no longer need a noseband, and she sits in a firm contact quite happily, taking more rein when it's offered. It's been like finding the magic key! :)
