I am not a rider that changes bits that often, liking to have all my horses in snaffle bits of some description. So when this bit was recommended by my trainer, I was somewhat reluctant to change anything. I am so glad that I did. From the first ride my young horse was much steadier in the contact and more connected.

The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth.
A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or its tongue trying to escape the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue. With this in mind the McHardy was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue relieving pressure. The Buster Roller in the middle increases bar pressure and as a result lifting the horse's head and giving more control.
