Kimblewick Happy Tongue Straight Swivel

Key Features

As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the riders hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring. If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45° angle in the mouth. Causing the mouthpiece to act in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw, this is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action. There are 3 rein settings which increase or decrease the pressure.

The Happy Tongue Straight is a solid mouth bit which is ported to relieve tongue pressure but is not curved. This makes it slightly harsher than the curved Happy Tongue. The swivel mouthpiece can rotate on the horizontal, allowing the cheek piece to move independently, thereby the horse can set where it finds the mouthpiece most comfortable… removing tongue pressure.

Cheekpiece

The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony. The standard size Kimblewick is available with a shorter purchase, the Kimblewick Lite. Supplied with a nylon back strap.

Mouthpiece

The 4 available ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.

Supplied with a nylon back strap.
