Polo Big Ring Gag McHardy

Key Features

A gag works by lifting the bit in the mouth in order to encourage the head to be raised. Often used on strong horses that like to lower their heads in order to escape the action of the bit in the mouth and get very strong.

When pressure is applied to the rein, the bit is lifted in the mouth and poll pressure is applied. The bit also rotates slightly in the mouth putting more pressure on the tongue and bars.

A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or trying to put  its tongue over the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue. With this in mind the McHardy was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure. The Buster Roller in the middle increases bar pressure and as a result extends the head and brings the nose in giving more control.

Cheekpiece

This is a very popular bit on the Polo field.

To be correctly used, it must be used with two reins one on the gag rein and one on the bit, only bringing the gag rein into play when needed, although most people ride on the gag rein only.
