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.
Supplied with a curb chain.
