This cheek style can be used for pleasure riding, training, or competition. It has a 2.5" purchase with a 5" shank. The shank is swept back like the 6" style, but to a lesser degree, offering more leverage. When properly adjusted it is still a mild cheek, but has plenty of control at increased speeds.
This versatile mouthpiece wraps the tongue when pressure is applied. Pressure is also realized on the chin from the curb strap to the bars and corners of the mouth. This bit works well on well broke young horses or light-mouthed older horses.
