This Weymouth has a high port to allow space for the horse's tongue. This means that pressure is put on the bars of the mouth rather than the tongue when rein pressure is applied, so it is often suitable for horses with large, fleshy or sensitive tongues. Please note that, depending on the individual horse's mouth conformation, the port may also act on the roof of the mouth if it touches.
The sliding cheek makes the bit more mobile than a fixed cheek in the horse's mouth. This gives the rider extra feel and helps to encourage salivation and mouthing of the bit. The horse is also rewarded for a correct response by an instant release of pressure when rein aids are relaxed.
A standard curb chain is included.
This bit can be made to specific shank measurements - please contact us for details.
