The Combination Bits DISPERSE PRESSURE to the nose, mouth, chin, and poll areas. The light-weight design works well for all disciplines.
The Combination Bits are VERSATILE, offering different options for leverage and function. You can attach a single rein to 3 different areas on the bit- the nose rope, the lower area of the shank or the shank at the corner of the mouth. You can use double reins in combination to any of the 3 areas.
Attaching a rein to the NOSE ROPE puts mild pressure across the nose and takes some concussion out of the mouth. It softens the feel of the bit, and slows it's action by dispersing the pressure to 4 areas on the head. The nose, mouth, chin and poll.
Attaching a rein to the LOWER SHANK area makes the bit function in a direct way with more leverage. Attaching a rein to the SHANK AT THE CORNER OF THE MOUTH provides a milder direct pressure on the bit. The shank options delete the nose pressure. The rope does not need to be removed, it will stay in place.
The unique MOUTHPIECE is wide, flat and slow activating. It does not roll over fully or quickly and gives the horse time to react to a request in a non-abrupt way. It is non-pinching, with a copper roller that stimulates saliva, keeps a nervous horse pacified, and encourages the horse to loosen and soften in the jaw. Available with the Standard mouthpiece or in a Low Port version- 3/4" less in height.
The Combination Bit DISCOURAGES bit evasions like head tossing and high headedness, pulling, rooting, and defensive, nervous behaviors. The Bit ENCOURAGES responsiveness, correct head carriage, lateral and vertical flexion, collection, control, and relaxation. Excellent for COMPETITIVE events like Barrel Racing, Penning, or Jumping, yet extremely popular for Trail/Pleasure riding. GAITED Riders can maintain a steady connection and encourage collection, helping the horse maintain their proper gaits consistently, without over-bitting, resulting in a smoother ride.
