The Korsteel JP Dutch Gag 3 Ring French Link has a curved mouthpiece
which follows the contours of the horses mouth and is ideal for a horse
with a larger tongue. The continental cheek involves a series of
stainless steel rings, the main snaffle ring with one smaller ring above
and two below, which enables a number of different positions for the
reins. The continental snaffle is a popular bit for horses and ponies,
and useful for horses that dislike a curb but respond well to poll
pressure. Continental bits work by raising the bit up in the horse or
ponies mouth in a similar manor to a conventional gag, but there is a
limit to the extent this can happen thus lessening the severity.
All horses mouths and tongues vary in size and shape, the bit must be
the correct size and type for your horse.

To take these measurements, straighten the bit loosely and measure between
the inside edges of cheeks, eggbuts or ring holes.
JP Bits by Korsteel provide ultimate communication between you and your
horse. John Patterson (JP), world-renowned trainer and jockey developed
the curved bar design to enhance performance by facilitating utmost
comfort for your horse.
Unlike a standard jointed snaffle's nearly straight mouthpiece, JP bits
have a curved shape that eliminates the interference that conventional
bits can cause. All JP bits feature curved bars that prevent the bit
from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and eliminate the
nutcracker-like action that can pinch a horse's tongue.
