Is your horse fussy and overactive in the mouth? Is he inwardly fixated on the presence of the doubles and not focussing fully on the rein aids?
- This revolutionary new weymouth design has proven to be an excellent solution. The mouthpiece traces out a subtle convex arc.
- when the curb rein is employed, the curb chain is engaged, restricting further rotation and simultaneously the mouthpiece rotates forwards, coming to rest vertically within the mouth. It does not roll forwards onto the thinner more sensitive area of the tongue.
- The Transform is also beneficial for the “short smile” (small distance from the corner of the lip to the muzzle), as it will sit further back in the mouth. This leaves more room for the bridoon.
- The comfort this Weymouth offers deters the horse’s need to draw back the tongue, in order to relieve pressure, however if this has already become a confirmed habit, many times exacerbated through tension, it is also physically harder for the horse to achieve this, as there is usually insufficient room remaining behind the Transform.
- These factors combined even in extreme cases of tongue evasions have proven to be highly successful.
- Now available from 4.75" to 5.75" in 1/4" increments.
-14mm mouthpiece, with 7cm shanks.
- The Baucher snaffle promotes a round outline by employing very mild poll pressure*, while the mouthpiece simultaneously lifts up within the mouth taking pressure off the bars and tongue.
- The fixed cheek style of the Baucher offers the mouthpiece increased stability which can help promote a more consistent contact and outline from the horse, as well as being helpful for riders with slightly unsteady hands.
- Good for shoulder control, to help prevent falling in etc.
- Dressage legal as a snaffle.
- 8022B 14mm mouthpiece, available from 5" to 6" in size.
*Anita's comments: The Baucher in reality applies little if any poll pressure, though the various marketing materials for the different brands do still promote this bit in terms of applying poll pressure. The main benefit of this bit comes from the stability of the mouthpiece (more so than an eggbutt) rather than the very mild- if there is any at all- poll pressure. This is still a direct action bit, and hence why is it legal for competition as a snaffle, and a bit that does apply leverage such as the 'spanish snaffle' is not.
- Both bits are dressage legal, includes the curb chain, Diamond Paste bit cleaner and a lip strap in this set.
For sizing: please select your current snaffle size. You will be sent a bridoon in this size and the weymouth a 1/4" smaller, as this generally suits the majority of horses. (of course, we do exchange for size for no additional charge should you need). Please note, should you be ordering a 5" set, you will receive both bits as a 5" as this is the smallest available size currently in these styles.
