Wow what a difference a bit can make to a fussy mouth thoroughbred! He has a huge tongue that was damaged by over tight tongue ties so his transition to a ridden horse has been a bit trying in finding a bit he’s happy in. This is the third bit I tried and almost immediately I noticed a great difference. He was happier in the contact and there wasn’t the need for him to throw his tongue around; it was settled in his mouth. He is comfortable and now coming forward in leaps and bounds. Can highly recommend for a sensitive mouth horse.
New from Trust Equestrian! *Dressage legal*
The Innosense port mouth eggbutt provides tongue relief and stability to a sensitive or fussy mouthed horse. Also brilliant for a horse who is uncomplicated and you want something kind and soft. Available in 'medium' material.
Bits from the Inno Sense line can be used for every horse and particularly suitable for young horses and/or horses with a sensitive mouth. The synthetic material is FDA approved, which means the material does not contain plasticizers and is non-toxic to people and animals. In addition, the flexi- and mullen model of the Inno Sense Bits line are solid because of the application of a core of stainless steel. Horses that are ridden with an Inno Sense Bit follow the hand easily and accept the bit smoothly.
I have struggled to find a dressage legal bit for my extremely sensitive mouthed horse, and this has been a blessing. He is soft and responsive and very little resistance is given.
Excellent bit. It has changed my horse completely, have a calm half halt and calm transitions. He is soft and through in his collected work as well
I recently bought this bit for my sensitive soft mouthed horse who whilst quite good in a 'turtle-top' bit still seemed not as happy as he could be and in trot was noisly chomping. There was a huge difference even in the first ride using the Trust. He was much steadier in the contact and barely chomped in trot. The second ride was even better, he relaxed much quicker in trot and hardly tried to chomp at all. This bit seems very stable in the mouth and is soft in its action. I would highly recommend it for horses such as mine that have fussy, sensitive mouths.
I bought this bit for a mare who I ride that has quite a few missing teeth,is very sensitive in her mouth/contact and has quite a small mouth. We got this bit recently on advice, and she seems a lot happier to ride with this compared the the snaffles we had tried before. She is much less fidgety and isn't so upset with this bit. It's a great bit for a sensitive horse who tries to avoid contact and sits very still in the mouth.
