The Trust Combination Hackamore Eliptical works by applying pressure to the nose as well as the tongue. Fitted with adjustable screw in stoppers. A key allows you to set the movement of the mouthpiece. This comes supplied with the bit.

The longer shank applies more pressure to the nose, whilst The shorter shank reduces the pressure to the nose. This will make the hackamore quite a strong and effective bit, when used correctly.
The sweet iron is warm and tastes nice to a horse with its sweeter taste. This bit is designed to rust with use, and therefore giving the sweet taste which many horses prefer. The rust is not harmful to your horse and is therefore at no risk whatsoever.
The Eliptical lozenge mouthpiece is a very popular mouthpiece for stronger horses. This is due to the lozenge applying more pressure than most mouthpieces, because of its smaller surface area, applying more pressure on the tongue. If you are looking for a softer mouth piece. Please check out the Inno Sense Flexible Hackamore.

Horse Bits From Trust Equestrian.
A TRUST-bit is completely handmade. All the components are welded together and polished by hand. Heating the sweet iron for a short amount of time, gives it, its beautiful deep blue colour. The final touch is stamping the size and brand name onto the bit.
Both the Inno Sense and leather bits are also handmade in the Netherlands.
Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with air and humidity. This rust is sweet in taste and naturally stimulates the saliva production. As it causes the horse to salivate more, it encourages a better acceptance of the bit.
Is Sweet Iron right For My Horse?
Sweet iron rusts when it comes into contact with the air and humidity. This surface rust tastes sweet and pleasant to a horse. As a result this naturally stimulates the saliva production. This therefore causes the horse to salivate, so as a result the horse takes better contact with the bit.
Please be aware that over time the process of oxidation of the bit, causes the bit to rust and change from the blue colour to a brownish iron colour. If not used. The sweet iron bit will develop an orange-brown rust layer on the mouthpiece. Remove by wiping with a damp cloth.
