TIMED EVENTS vs PERFORMANCE PEN

“I designed my bits strictly from the horse’s point of view, with respect for their innate and instinctive responses to pain and pressure. By considering only the horse’s point of view, I developed a complete line for all stages of training in every discipline.”

TIMED EVENTS vs PERFORMANCE PEN

Non-Palate Pressure

For non-palate pressure bits, the shank gives the rider leverage and the mouthpiece applies the pressure. All pressure response in non-palate mouthpieces focuses on the edges of the horse’s tongue. This type of pressure provides horses with a direct cue. Non palate pressure mouthpieces are under 2” in height and provide ample amount of tongue relief without interfering with the of their mouth.

Palate Pressure

For palate pressure bits, the shank gives the rider leverage and while combining cues to the roof of their mouth with the edge of their tongue. This type of pressure asks the horse for a response at the roof of their mouth and then reinforces the cue on the edges of the tongue. Palate pressure mouthpieces are over 2” in height and are only recommended in advanced training programs.
