The form of the mouth piece as well as the soft transition to the rings prevent pinching and sit stable in the horse's mouth. The different degrees of hardness allows the bit to be used on almost any horse. The 3-Ring combines effective restriction, leverage and pull effect in one bit. The level of control depends on the different rings which changes the length of leverage. The 3-Ring is often used to test the horse's reaction to leverage but when used with a second rein it is similar to a regular Eggbutt or loose ring snaffle.
