Well, what are you using this bit for? What level of horse and why are you looking into it?
I really can't answer totally, except I am not a fan of solid mouthpieces due to the lack of lateral movement. The only time I do use them is when I have a ridiculously bendy horse who needs a little stiffer of a mouthpiece.
The shanks aren't harsh and the mouthpiece isn't aprticularly either, a little tongue relief but not a lot. Has your hrose ever carried a ported bit before?
I would use it for trail riding and yes she has but medium port and it makes it throw her head so my friend let me try her low port and not once did she run threw it or throw her head. But I like swivel cheeks better and I found this but no real good reviews on it, so I wanted a review before I ever thought of buying it.
My horse runs threw almost any kind of bit we have put in her mouth, it takes me a good few mins to get her to stop, even if I bump on the reins she still doesnt respond. A low port seems to be the only thing I get a response out of with her. She barrel races too but I don't how it would work for her.
Correct me if im wrong, but a low port mouthpiece isnt any harsher than a single jointed mouthpiece. Maybe even easier in the mouth, especially when you have a horse with a low pallet. Posted via Mobile Device
