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 is one of the most popular bits with all horsemen. It applies more pressure to the tongue than the dogbone, giving it a quicker response. Offers lateral pull and collection.
