This cheek style can be used for training, pleasure riding or competition. It has a 2-1/2” purchase with a 5” shank. The shank is swept back like the 6” style, but to a lesser degree, offering more leverage. When properly adjusted it is still a mild cheek, but has plenty of control at increased speeds.
This highly universal bit works well for anything from training to pleasure or competition. The low port provides tongue relief as slight pressure is applied to the bars of the mouth and the palate. Each side works independently from the port for increased lateral flexion.
