Maria's joints will never push against the sides of the palate or put uneven pressure over the bars. A very comfortable bit that shapes naturally around the tongue and reveals the bars from constant pressure. Maria has it all. 100% super smooth surface even around the joints. A very comfortable bit to wear. This bit should be in every tack room!
We design them that way to keep the balance point (BP) in the mouth. If you have a bigger bend forward, you will also move the BP forward and slowing down the process of your aids. It has also been shown to protect the bars and flesh from burn marks and wounds on the most sensitive horse.
If you would describe your horse as something with the following;
- Shows discomfort on every bit you have tried.
- Get stuck in one or both sides, stiff.
- Horse putting their head down/throwing their head up.
- Refusal to soften down onto the bit.
