This bit works well, without being too harsh.
Introducing the Acavallo Sensitive bit. A superb thinner, lightweight synthetic bit for the soft mouth. Sits very still in the mouth and multiple rein options give you the ability to use mild leverage when needed.
The Acavallo Sensitive is made of an innovative, anti-allergic plastic material instead of a heavy and/or cold metal or metal alloy.
Its slightly arched and flattened mouthpiece ensures that pressure on tongue, yaws and mouth corners, if applicable, is distributed evenly.
The one-piece design of mouthpiece and rings prevents a one-sided squeezing or pinching of tongue or yaws, as well as painful irritations of the palate (no “nutcracker effect”).
It enhances confidence of the horse in the rider’s hand because of its quiet and comfortable positioning in the mouth, helping the horse to find its own balance.
Due to its integrated, flexible steel cable reinforcement, this bit provides for a soft, yet very secure control of the horse.
An ideal choice especially for the schooling of young and the correction of difficult horses.

I absolutely love this bit! It works wonders for sensitive horses to give them the confidence to accept a contact. It is also a lovely bit to use interchangeably with metal bits to allow the horses some variation.
