Alexander the Great. A double jointed sweet iron bit.
Alexanders anatomically shaped mouthpiece 45° twisted french link laying in same direction as the tongue. Together with the taste of sweet iron this bit are easily accepted even by very picky and sensitive horses.This middle piece works good on a horse who uses his tongue to push against the bit and therefore taking control. When taking the reins it will give both bar and tongue pressure making the horse come back with a lighter feeling in your hands.

Some horses prefer D-Rings before regular loose rings or an Eggbutt as it gives a more solid feel against the side of the horse’s face. D-Rings prevents the bit to be pulled through the mouth. They also give the rider more leverage with making turns,Compared to Loose Rings the Dee Ring gives a slightly slower release and poll pressure. Some riders think their horse are a bit to heavy and get slower reactions on Dee rings, then I would recommend to try loose rings with Wings instead. The wings are a good way to avoid pinching of your horse lips and prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth.

This is our points of experience after developing and let equestrians try this product:

Alexanders mouthpiece doesn’t take up much space and are easy for horses to accept.
Both bar and tongue pressure are applied when you ride with contact.
Sweet iron (blue alloy) is more often accepted by the horse than bits without sweet iron.
The 45 degree french link centre piece follow the contour of the horses tongue and are suitable for horses that uses its tongue to push against the bit to take control.
