The Action of the Loose Ring

The most popular – the loose ring has much more movement and play than
a fixed butt or cheek. It discourages fixing, blocking and leaning and
encourages mouthing. It allows the mouthpiece more movement so that it
may follow the angle of the tongue because the angle of the poll and the
horses overall outline changes through different work etc..

The Demi Anky Mouthpiece

 

The Demi Anky is a very popular Dressage bit. It can be used as a
Snaffle or a Bradoon in conjunction with the Weymouth and usually
encourages a true consistent contact. Although single jointed (and I do
not usually use single jointed bits for my flatwork), it is curved and
shaped very cleverly, it curves slightly away from the lip so as not to
squash it in, it is curved subtly down towards the bar giving an even
weight bearing surface across the bars it bends down toward the central
joint so that when a contact is taken it forms a long low shape over the
tongue offering tongue relief. Owing to the shape of the bit it is very
rare that palate interference occurs. I find this design is very
beneficial for horses that back off or only offer an intermittent
contact. Do not be put off trying this design if your horse leans or is
heavy – horses often lean because they are not comfortable in the mouth.
I know that this may not sound logical but horses will lean into pain
or discomfort.
