    Sorry, that's not the purpose of the keepers, this is a good article concerning full cheek bits and keepers: Full Cheek Snaffle With Bit Keepers

    The keepers stabilize the bit, not prevent it from doing it's job which is to contact the roof of the mouth and to have a nutcracker affect on the horse's tongue.
