Typically a Weymouth applies pressure to the Poll, curb and mouth. By innovating a spring loaded purchase we have introduced a relaxed performance.
Softening the curb and poll pressures.
Quickening the release of pressure and reward
Creating space for a balance of pressures, communication and synergy between horse and rider.
The Happy Tongue Straight is a solid mouth bit which is ported to relieve tongue pressure but is not curved. This makes it slightly harsher than the curved Happy Tongue.
The width of a Weymouth, should be slightly smaller than the bridoon, we suggest 5mm. The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony. The standard size Weymouth has 2 length shanks. The longer shank allows for more hand movement and slows the leveraging of the pressure points.
The 4 available ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.
