Informed Designs Hanging Cheek Harmony 12mm



The Harmony mouthpiece actively encourages a horse to move towards and push his tongue forward to the contact .As the reins are used together the whole mouthpiece wraps around the tongue and lower jaw, taking in the whole of the tongue the sides of the lips and the sides of the bars and the sides of the lips in a perfect hoop. As the Round Lozenge is the correct length and the joints are neat and non invasive the Horse should move forward into the contact. Both branches of the bit are curved forward to go with the shape of the Horses tongue and roof of the mouth unlike some Lozenge Snaffles that really pinch the Horses lower jaw . Good young Horse starter Bit.

Very useful for Horses or Ponies that are uncomfortable with
• A large joint or joints
• Large long plates or lozenges
• That block on one side as you flex or turn
• or are very busy in the mouth
• or do not draw the contact forward

The Hanging Cheek means that as you fasten the cheek of your Bridle into the top staple of the cheek, some of the weight of the bit is taken off the Horses tongue and onto the Bridle and because of the small side cheek the bit is stabilised in the Horses mouth, when rein pressure is applied and then released the bit returns to the same place in the Horses mouth because of the cheek attachment. The rein attaches to the larger ring and as it is used you get a backward mouth pressure but no poll action, it is a fallacy that hanging cheek creates poll action as the rein rolls to the top of the ring before the bit is activated. An excellent cheek if you are doing several different things in one snaffle it has a very supportive cheek and a defined action.
