Description

 

The hanging cheek or Filet Baucher snaffle is commonly used on horses that carry their heads high as it places pressure on the poll, encouraging the horse to lower its head and come onto the bit. This bit can be used in dressage provided it is used with a normal snaffle bridle.

This bit has been found useful for horses and ponies that need a bit or extra help when compared to the snaffle for stopping.
