The Black Tie Dee with a "no pinch" ball design is Reinsman's premier dee ring. The Even Pull element results in soft and even pressure across the tongue, bars and lips. And, for the horse with a low palate, the Even Pull removes the potential Ônut cracker' effect of a regular jointed snaffle. Add to that Reinsman's Sweet & Sour mouthpiece which tastes like a green apple dipped in molasses, and this dee is sure to become your horse's favorite! The sweet and sour combination causes increased salivation, leading to a more relaxed jaw and a supple mouth. Copper is a soft metal, check for signs of wear before each use.
