The Difference Between A D Ring And A Full Cheek?

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

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

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.
