Full Cheek Bit Very steady bit, no pinching by angled bars. Useful on horses that need more guidance around turns, like young or very strong ones. The full cheek bit is very popular with jumpers that need to turn quickly.
Leather Bit Horses do accept leather bits very well. Virtually every horse likes the feeling of leather in their mouth and react with increased chewing activity and more salivation. The more salivation, the better slides the bit in the mouth what means an increased well being of your horse. The anatomical shape of the mouthpiece adjusts when wet even more perfect to the anatomy of the horses’ mouth. Extremely well suited is our leather mouthpiece for young and highly sensitive horses, disliking all other materials. Even horses that generally dislike bits in their mouth often accept this material and can learn to trust the hand of a gentle rider again. Our mouthpieces are vegetable tanned, stitched by hand and available in two degrees of hardness (soft and hard) and in the width 120,130,140 mm.
Please note our care instructions: Prior to the first use please soak the mouthpiece thoroughly in cooking oil. Please repeat since the leather seems dry to you. Prior to every use please soak briefly in cold water and rinse after use because saliva can erode the leather quickly.
