Made to Jeffries stringent specifications in modern foundry conditions, with laboratory controlled metallurgy, using lost wax precision casting. This ensures precise temperature-controlled conditions essential for accuracy of components. Each Bit, Spur Stirrup is hand-assembled by craftsmen, with attention to detail, and finished to a high polish, maintaining traditional Eldonian quality standards.
The Centre Revolver bits are a Revolutionary design by Jeffries. New to the Market 2006.
My belief of this bit is that it is one of the best designs so far, the lozenge is one of my favorite mouthpieces and now it comes with independent side action. This is going to provide riders with something they have not seen or used before, they will sit lovely in the horses mouth and are suitable for most breeds, if you have never tried a lozenge mouthpiece before, are currently using a French link or you have a lozenged mouthpiece, I suggest you give one of these a go. This is going to be a big seller!!!!
Full Cheek Bits
Full Cheek bits are a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesnt move around to much in the mouth, it should encourage the horse to stretch into the contact. A fixed bit would be less suitable if your horse is prone to leaning or taking hold of the bit
Full cheek bits are very useful for breaking in, or bringing on of young horses, as they help tremendously with the turning aids, and help to teach the horse to turn, the full cheek bit does not slide through the mouth as would a normal snaffle would if your horse doesnt like to turn. The bit is particularly useful for horses that nap, as the bit will help if the horse suddenly makes a dash for the gate or for the nosey horses who spend half their time looking at what they are missing whilst being in the paddock, The full cheek bit works by applying pressure to the cheek when an turning aid is asked. The full cheek bits can be used with or without fulmer loops/keepers, although many would say that the keepers keep the bit in the correct place, they also add poll pressure, so if you dont need any poll pressure then, it wouldnt be useful to use the keepers. But please be aware that the full cheek bits used particularly with young children, can be dangerous in some circumstances and if your horse rubs their head you may find that the cheek is hooked somewhere! They should be supervised whilst being used A safer alternative for younger children is the full spoon bits as the cheek piece is less pointy and not as long.
Stainless Steel Revolver Lozenge
The Lozenged Mouthpiece bits have proven the of the most popular of bits. The mouthpiece is the New French Link, it has a oval shaped link in the centre. The lozenge shaped link contours the tongue and forms a true contact. It has no protruding pressure points like the French link does (where the flat link joins the mouthpiece); it has 2 joints, which means the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth. Because the mouthpiece has two joints, it shouldnt cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The Lozenge uses tongue pressure to encourage the horse to go on the bit and lower the head, it has bar and lip pressure but not a squeezing action like that of a bit with a single joint. The more joints a bit has the less likely the horse is to lean as the bit becomes more mobile.
Because of the split centre Lozenge which revolves, this gives a independent rein action, allowing one half of the bit to be used whilst the other half stays put, not causing the whole bit to lift in the mouth. A superb design by Jeffries…..
