What's the difference between a D ring snaffle and a Full Cheek snaffle?

Here's a D ring- note how the part that connects to the bridle is shaped like a D:

Here's a full cheek- note the ring to connect to the bridle/reins, and the long pieces that run along the cheek:

I think BornToRun means in the difference of how they work not the looks, I'm assuming. I'm sorry if I'm wrong :) lol

Haha, well if that's the case then it's probably best to ask about the function, not just the differences

The full cheek is meant to be used with keepers on the bridle that keep it suspended in the mouth.

Also, D-rings are stronger than snaffles that have round rings, including the full cheek. The D shape transmits more of the force applied to the reins to the horse's mouth.
