This Butterfly Flip bit has a straight bar hard Vulcanite mouthpiece.
Butterfly Flip bits are named after Malin Baryard-Johnsson's legendary show jumper Butterfly Flip. The butterfly flip bit offers different rein positions to give varying degrees of control and poll pressure.
The Butterfly Flip functions as both a direct action bit and a leverage bit depending on the position of the reins.
If the rein is attached to the top hook, it works as a direct action bit, exerting the same amount of pressure on the mouth as it felt through the reins. If the rein is attached to the bottom hook, it works as a leverage bit, tilting the mouthpiece forward and applying pressure to the mouth, curb and poll.
A curb strap can be added to the upper ring to add chin pressure while reducing poll pressure, helping to sit the horse up more into the fence.
Available in 5in, 5.5in or 6in.
