Ported for tongue relief and very light, can be made with your choice of cheek piece. The Drop Cheek has an Eggbutt like ring at the mouthpiece for the rein, with an upper cheek that has a ring at its end, to which the cheekpiece of the bridle is attached. The mouthpiece does not slide on its ring resulting in only slight poll pressure. The cheekpieces lies flat against the horse’s face, and the mouthpiece is quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars. Made from a rubber nylon compound with a steel core. Please note this material can be chewed.
