The Trust Equestrian Inno Sense Soft Flexi 2.5 Ring Eggbutt Gag combines a flexible mouthpiece with 2.5 ring sides.
The top ring is attached to the cheekpieces to apply poll pressure, resulting in the horse's head lowering, while the half-ring gives leverage, causing a head raising action. When these actions are combined, it results in a gag action. The 2.5 ring, sometimes known as a Universal, is the mildest version of a ring gag as the half-ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece. Meanwhile, the eggbutt sides prevent pinching while giving a more direct action than a loose ring.
The flexible mouthpiece is designed for horses with sensitive mouths, as it is extremely gentle to the horse's mouth and tongue.
A flexible steel core ensures safety.
Trust Equestrian offer no guarantees in the event of biting on the Inno Sense mouthpiece. If the bit is correctly placed in the mouth, it does not touch the teeth or molars. There are horses that due to a dental problem, damage the bit by biting it or lift the bit upwards with their tongue, so that the horse can reach the bit and thereby create the possibility that the flexible material of the Trust Inno Sense flexi bit gets damaged. Defective Trust Inno Sense flexi bits with bite marks shall therefore not be reimbursed by Trust Equestrian.
