The Wellep full cheek single jointed
snaffle

1. The Wellep full cheek single jointed snaffle

The angle of the joint is very slight, making it almost a straight bar bit. The joints allow the mouthpiece to roll in the mouth, when played with by the horse, similar to a roller mouth bit. Acts on the tongue and lips, with some bar pressure.

snaffle

2. The Wellep lever cheek single jointed snaffle

Same mouthpiece as 1, but with the lever action of the cheek plates the poll is brought into play in addition to the tongue, lips and to a greater degree, the bars, causing more flexion, but without the aid of a curb chain.

The Wellep full cheek double jointed
snaffle

3. The Wellep full cheek double jointed snaffle

Allows more of an angle over the tongue, and the centre section with its ball joint at both ends allows the middle to roll, encouraging the horse to play. A kind bit, could well prove successful on a horse with a sensitive mouth. Acts on the tongue, bars and lips.

snaffle

4. The Wellep lever cheek double jointed snaffle

Same mouthpiece as 3, but with the added control of the lever action adding poll pressure. This is a bit that in trials has proved very readily acceptable even to strong horses that do not care for their mouths being pulled about.

The Wellep full cheek French snaffle

5. The Wellep full cheek French snaffle

This mouthpiece has a flat oval plate that lies on the tongue. There is not the play of a conventional French mouthpiece. Acts on tongue, bars and lips.

6. The Wellep lever cheek French snaffle

Same mouthpiece as 5, but with the addition of poll pressure. Both these would be classed as kind bits.

The Wellep full cheek Dr Bristol snaffle

7. The Wellep full cheek Dr Bristol snaffle

This bit is stronger owing to the angled plate that is fixed to restrict its rotational movement. Acts on tongue, lips and bars.

snaffle

8. The Wellep lever cheek Dr Bristol snaffle

This is the strongest of the bits as it adopts the poll as well as a far greater degree of pressure on the tongue. Must be used with care.

The Wellep half cheek Mullen mouth bit

9. The Wellep half cheek Mullen mouth bit

The mouthpiece of this bit has a slightly tapering centre to allow a comfortable contact with the tongue, as it acts principally on the tongue and the corners of the mouth, being designed not to bruise the lips, a feature of all these bits.

The Wellep full cheek single jointed
snaffle with double rein fixtures

10. The Wellep full cheek single jointed snaffle with double rein fixtures

This bit works in a similar way to the standard single jointed snaffle but with the second rein one can bring the poll into play, thus gaining a 'gag' effect without disturbing the attitude of the mouthpiece of the snaffle.
