Curb Bit Portuguese style from Sweet Iron

Classic Curb Bit, as it is often used in Portugal. The light, vertical play of the mouthpiece promotes the horse's chewing activity. This facilitates the loosening of the jaw, neck and thus the entire horse's back. The optimized and anatomically shaped Mullen Mouth ported mouthpiece is readily accepted by many horses, as it lies very evenly on the tongue and is cushioned by it. Through natural oxidation processes and the formation of noble rust, the burnished iron stimulates salivation. For horses with sensitive mouth angles, we recommend the use of bit guards due to the movable connection between side piece and mouthpiece .

Effect & Usage of Portuguese Curb Bit

The Portuguese Curb Bit has a less direct action due to its movable side pieces compared to curb bits with firmly welded mouthpiece. This allows the horse to play more with the mouthpiece and rein aids arrive less directly. The light sliding cheek allows the horse to move the mouthpiece rhythmically up and down. Mouthy horses and horses with very little mouth activity this helps to relax the jaw better. This also loosens the neck and ultimately the entire body of the horse more easily.

The Portuguese Curb Bit can be used blank with one or two pairs of reins. The use with two pairs of reins offers a wonderful alternative to the combination Curb Bit-bradoon for horses with short mouth gaps and little space in the mouth.


The right size for the Curb Bit

Under "Size guide" (see above) you will find the real dimensions of the mouthpiece. If you are unsure, we recommend that you compare the real dimensions of your existing bit with those of the Portuguese Curb Bit to find the correct size. Please note that the side pieces should fit close to the corners of your horse's mouth. If your horse fluctuates between two sizes, we recommend you choose the larger size for this model.


Care instructions for burnished iron

Rust forms on traditional burnished products or product components after some time. This is due to natural oxidation processes and is not a quality defect, but an essential and desired characteristic of this material. To maintain the dark color, it is recommended to occasionally rub the parts concerned with a cloth soaked in olive oil.

The more than 160-year history of Frenería y Romanas López
Frenería y Romanas López is a handicraft business founded in 1850 and based in Cortegana, Andalusia. The town is known for its many traditional handicraft businesses, which mainly serve the agricultural production in the region. For example, the ancestors of the current owners, bits and spurs already supplied local riders. At López, the love of craftsmanship and the secrets of producing high-quality metal goods have been passed down from father to son for five generations. Over the centuries, the forging skills and manufacturing processes have been constantly refined. Even today, López combines modern manufacturing processes with traditional craftsmanship. Without losing the knowledge of craftsmanship, traditional products of high quality and contemporary variety continue to be manufactured.
Spanish bits, Stirrups and spurs
Thus, López specialized in the manufacture of metalware for the Spanish and Portuguese equestrian styles, such as bits, Stirrups, as well as slip-on spurs and Vaquera-spurs. The products manufactured by López in the plant in Cortegana are marked with the seal of quality "López". At Picadera you will find selected metal goods from López, such as snaffle bits (Baucher bit , full cheek snaffle bit, Kimblewick) and ported & mullen mouth bits (Baucher bit , Kimblewick, Pelham, Baroque curb bit, Spanish Curb Bit), as well as Spanish Vaquero-spurs and Portuguese slip-on spurs.
