The Full cheek copper roller snaffle is a popular bit, and is used for horses that need something stronger than a jointed bit because they lean or try to grab the bit. The alternating stainless steel and copper rollers set along the mouthpiece, allow the bit to roll up the mouth, and help to prevent the horses from grabbing it between the teeth. The jointed mouthpiece gives a nutcracker action on the bars, and can contact the palate. Full cheek bits are often used on young horses to aid steering, as the cheek gives a more positive action against the cheek when the rider asks for a turn. Full cheek snaffles should be used with fulmer loops which secure the top of the bit to the cheekpieces to prevent the bit from rotating and leaving the cheeks pointing out which could pose a hazard. By securing the cheek, it also allows a very small amount of poll pressure to come into play, helping to encourage a lower outline.
