SWALES IN ACTION
HOW DOES A SWALES 3-IN-1 BIT WORK?
On the Swales 3-in1 bit, the top reins are attached to the loose sliding rings that are fitted around the bit’s mouthpiece. A curb chain is attached to the spiral section above the mouthpiece. While it is true to say that the poll pressure is greatly reduced because these inside rings slip around the mouthpiece, it is also important to acknowledge that they will have the ability to intensify the bit’s action by squeezing inwards upon the sides of the lips and mouth.
Additionally, there will be a strong downwards action across the mouth as well as pressure upon the chin groove via the curb chain. If a Swales 3 in 1 was fitted with a jointed mouthpiece the action across the horse’s jaw would be very severe.
