A kimblewick is quite literally a d-ring with a short straight purchase at the top of the D. But uniquely functions as both a direct action and leverage bit using a curb strap. If the rein is attached to the top hook, it works as a direct action bit, exerting the same amount of pressure on the mouth as on the reins. If the rein is attached to the bottom hook, it works like a leverage bit, tilting the mouthpiece forward and applying pressure to the parts of the mouth curb and poll.
Soft, very supple and pleasant in the mouth with a flexible steel core giving high security, particularly for sensitive or young horse
Does come with a nylon back strap.
These bits take around 3 weeks to come in if not in stock. Please contact if needed urgently prior to ordering.
hard/firm - the material is firm and no-flexible whilst very pleasant in the mouth, for very strong or horses that lean. A less cumbersome alternative to Vulcanite.
