HELP WITH STEERING - Shanks on the bit create a positive action against the horse's cheeks when asked to turn. The full cheek design also prevents the bit being dragged through the horse’s mouth. This bit can be used with keepers on the bridle to help keep the cheeks vertical.
NO NUTCRACKER ACTION - French link mouthpiece distributes pressure evenly over the tongue and bars of the mouth whilst reducing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit. When a bit has more joints the horse is less likely to lean on it because the mouthpiece becomes more movable.
