The dogbone center allows this chain mouthpiece more lateral capabilities while also providing some tongue relief. The lateral capabilities are increased because the dogbone center link transfers more pressure to the outside where the chain contacts the bars. This bit features calvary cheeks. This 8" "S" cheek is one of Greg’s most popular cheeks. With excellent feel and give, these cheeks provide quick response and release for both horse and rider. The traditional cavalry shape also helps keep the horse from grabbing the shank of the bit and playing with it. In stock for your convenience with our most requested mouthpieces, these bits are available to help you improve communication with your horse right now.
