Why choose a bevel bit for your horse?
The Bevel bit allows mild leverage and offers a little more control, promoting responsiveness and correct head carriage. Teamed with a brass alloy mouth piece this is an ideal bit for horses that need a touch more braking power but perhaps have sensitive mouths. The double jointed mouthpiece offers a higher level of comfort in the horse’s mouth as it helps to prevent pinching of the lips and bars of the mouth, whilst reducing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit.
A central lozenge helps to distribute pressure over both the tongue and bars of the mouth, encouraging mouthing and contact. Brass alloy is formed when copper is alloyed with a harder metal, this produces a warm and durable material which is perfect for horse bits as it can aid salivation and be more palatable to the horse.
