Cheek Pieces: The Wilkie utilizes pressure on the poll and raising the bit in the horse's mouth to achieve additional control without resorting to a stronger mouthpiece. This is similar to the action of a ring bit but to a milder degree, which is why it is popular for use on ponies.
Mouth Pieces: The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge. It is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and taking control will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
