- Independent side movement of shank. Great for lateral work.
- Copper inlay in mouthpiece. Great for salivation. Helps horse to stay calm.
- Swivel shank for more guided lateral movement or direct reining.
- Curved mouthpiece creates more room for horse's tongue as opposed to a bit that goes across the mouth or jointed (nutcracker effect. Nasty). ie. Humane.
- Ported mouthpieces give more room for the horse to lift the bit and swallow so it's more humane to have a port instead of a flat/mullen or jointed mouthpiece.
- Mouthpieces are 7/16" thick. New larger thickness available as preferred by English riders.
- Most mouthpieces are sweet iron. ie. tastes good to the horse. No stainless steel or others that create dry mouth.
Some Uses and Benefits:
- Rein position is good for training. Teaching a horse to give to bit pressure.
- Can't lift shoulders very well.
- Good for English riders who like the look of the shank.
- Used for English and Western show events.
- The mouthpiece gives some room for the tongue. Much better than a single or double jointed mouthpiece where the nutcracker effect causes pain or discomfort.
- No Hooks to create a fixed position for headstall and reins. Will not have some leverage action or use the Independent Side movement. ie. life shoulders, lateral movement.
