Drop Cheek Barrel

Key Features

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 cheek piece of the bridle is attached. The mouthpiece does not slide on its ring resulting in light poll pressure. The cheek pieces lie flat against the horse’s face, and the mouthpiece is quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars.

The Barrel joint limits the nut cracker action, which spreads the pressure over a larger area of the tongue and lessens the pressure on the bars. The Barrel allows for independent action on each rein. Please note, this bit exerts sharper tongue pressure than the Elliptical due to the Barrel being smaller.

Cheekpiece

The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony.
