Elisabeth's mouthpiece is a durable and comfortable, lightweight low ported Weymouth in the fantastic material - titanium. Elisabeth is a very stable mouthpiece and also the perfect choice for introducing a double bridle for the first time.
The port is bent forward. There is a big difference to have the bend tilted forward instead of upwards. When it is tilted forward, it will give the tongue freedom when it is placed inside the mouth. It also will give the bridoon more space.
When the reins are taken and the horse seeks the connection towards the bit, we want the tongue to take most of the pressure and not the bars. When the curb rein is pulled, the shank of the bit rotates back towards the chest of the horse, the mouthpiece is pushed forward against the tongue.
The chain is important to divide the pressure between the mouth-poll and chin.
A port upwards will instead highly increase the pressure on the bars and most likely create friction wounds on a sensitive horse.
Hooks and chain are included. Thickness 14mm, 12mm over the longue. Competition approved!

- Sensitive bars and tongue
- Hard to relax with a double bridle
- Give the bridoon more freedom
- Have a smaller mouth
- Have a horse that easily gets wounds on the bars/mouth corners.
