Drop Cheek Barrel 30


Cheek Pieces: The Drop Cheek has an Eggbutt like ring at the mouthpiece for the rein, with an upper cheek that has a ring at its end, to which the cheek piece of the bridle is attached. The mouthpiece does not slide on its ring resulting in only slight poll pressure. The cheekpieces lies flat against the horse's face, and the mouthpiece is quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars.

Mouth Pieces: A conventional Snaffle joint has a nutcracker action, which means it will bear pressure on the horse's bars and the tongue. The Barrel joint limits the nut cracker action and spreads the usual pressure over a larger area. When the rein is used this mouthpiece wraps across the tongue creating tongue pressure and taking pressure off the bars due to the lock up action. Please note appearances may be deceiving. This bit joint is stronger than the Elliptical and pressure is more concentrated on the tongue as this joint is smaller.
