Drop Cheek Control Plate Dressage
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: Approved by the FEI in B14 thickness, the Dressage Control Plate is narrower (12mm) than the conventional Control Plate and applies more tongue pressure. The Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
