This exciting new range of ergonomically designed bits features a 90% copper
mouthpiece to help promote salivation. An angled lozenge centre will facilitate
a better contact through a more comfortable mouthpiece.
Enabling a soft
contact but with extreme control. This is a popular bit
The Action of the Precision
Any extension above the mouthpiece will cause poll pressure (head lowering), any extension below the mouthpiece will give leverage (head raising). When the two are combined this is generally referred to as a gag action. The Precision is one of my personal favourites. The gag action is not excessive and even strong horses generally appreciate this and respond as opposed to fighting it.
The cheeks are always attached to the small offset ring at the top – the top ring is angled very cleverly in order to avoid excessive cheek pressure.
1.Gives the action of a loose ring baucher and is usually acceptable for flatwork, etc..
2.Gives a mild gag action
3.Roundings are employed reducing some gag action and allowing the use of one rein
4.Two reins to differentiate
5.A curb strap is used with the reins at any option but usually in conjunction with one rein on the bottom ring to maximize on the gag and curb action. This is an old showjumping trick which is still extensively used. A Curb does not have to lie in the chin groove in order to be effective – if you think about many western bits the curb strap is often employed further up.
