From Stubben, the EZ Control snaffle. Originally called a Danger Bit. At first glance this bit looks like a normal loose ring with a lozenge, but if you pick the bit up by the centre lozenge you will see it locks and becomes a solid mouthpiece.
Benefits of an EZ-Control Loose Ring Snaffle:

• Enhanced effect with minimum pressure on the reins
• Enables easier communication between horse and rider
• With the EZ-CONTROL-BIT riders have a more effective impact on the horse, requiring less pressure on the reins.
• Self-learning effect on the horse.
This is available in a 7" and is listed on the website.
Top-class and professional show jumpers
inspired us in the development of the Easy-
Control-Bit. Their horses (show jumpers) often
have a very strong impulsion, making it difficult at
times for the rider to bring the horse back before
each jump. When using too severe bits however,
horses become too cautious, resulting in a lack of
speed and power.
The Easy-Control-Bit is very effective and have a
strong action on demand, yet positioned soft and
comfortable in the horse’s mouth. The effect of
the bit comes into action gently. When the horse
accepts the bit, it lies smoothly between tongue
and lower jaw. Only when the horse resists the
rider’s aid, the stronger action (mullen mouth
action) is initiated. As soon as the horse accepts
the rider’s aid, the bit acts flexible and soft on the
horse’s tongue and bars (self-learning effect).
This particular effect has proved its worth also in
the training of young horses. The bit also helps
children a lot, who sometimes do not have
enough strength to control their strong or
