The Korsteel waterford hunter dee is gentle yet rewarding when the horse accepts the bit. The waterford mouthpiece is good for horses who have a tendancy to lean - the multiple links mean the horse can't take ahold of the bit. The bit rarely falls on the same part of the mouth making it handy on a strong horse. Korsteel bits are crafted from tough stainless steel. They are superbly finished down to the last detail and won't peel or lose their luster.
