This Dutton bit is moderately severe. It features a 1 1/2" high port attached to a chain mouth. The high port applies pressure on the bars and the chain collapses across the bars to encourage flexion. Similar to the 8” S-Cheek collection, Greg’s newest line is a great option for those that love the feel of the 8” cheeks, but are looking for a bit with a quicker response time and a little less leverage. A great cheek for roping or general riding. Greg recommends trading out between at least three different bits each time you ride in order to keep your horse soft and supple. The 5” cheeck is a great option to add to your program and is available in a variety of mouthpieces.
