Kimblewick Colin Miles
Cheek Pieces: As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the rider's hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring. If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45° angle in the mouth. The mouthpiece acts in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw which is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action. This bit is supplied with nylon back strap.
Mouth Pieces: The Colin Miles is a great schooling bit with a 55mm center piece creating greater tongue pressure and reducing bar pressure. The rings give the horse something to play with and help keep the horse's attention on the bit. This particular joint exerts more pressure than the Control Plate or Elliptical.
