When set in both rings, a soft effect is achieved. If buckled only in the outer ring, the double ring snaffle will have a sharper effect.
But normally the cheek pieces are buckled into the free running rings, the lines are buckled into the outer rings running through the bit. This has several advantages:
For one thing, the cheek pieces stay smooth against the head when the respective inner lead, which in the case of the multi-horse, after all, goes at an angle to the side horse, pulls the ring with the lead at an angle to the head. So nothing can press.
On the other hand, the free ring acts like a bit plate, making it more difficult to pull the bit through the mouth when the line is pulled strongly on one side.
