Excellent tool for teaching collection and lateral maneuvers. Durable cord cheek pieces on double stitched natural leather headstall with silver dots. Smooth snaffle is stainless steel. Twisted Wire Snaffle has a seed iron mouthpiece with stainless steel cheek. Ready to use - all you need are reins.
