Features Poponcini Bits

Poponcini Bits are made in Italy. These bits are distinguished by having an extremely soft mouthpiece. A Poponcini bit is made of a steel wire, and a brass bushing at the ends. A plastic layer is cast around. Then a special silicone layer is applied, by hand, that is not toxic to your horse. This assembly ensures optimum comfort for the horse's mouth.

The line of Poponcini bits made of this soft material, is also known as the HARMONY line.

Why should you choose a Poponcini bit of the HARMONY line?

A horse with a sore mouth can not relax. Ordinary mouthpieces can have this effect. With the mouthpieces from Harmony, a horse will immediately relax and working with a relaxed horse will be a pleasure for rider and horse! Due to this typical form of this mouthpiece, a horse will be able to close his mouth easily, so he will be  much calmer with his head and tongue.

NOTE: Because Poponcini bits are so soft, we give no warranty on these bits!

A bit manufactured from this type of plastic / silicone has a lower durability than a bit with a metal base.

Description Full cheek snaffle bit:

A Full cheek bit is a bit whose bit rings is extended with two small bars at the transition bit ring - mouthpiece. The sides make sure that a horse is easier to turn and that the rider can’t pull the bit through the horse’s mouth. This makes the Full cheek snaffle bit useful for schooling young horses. Attention: this bit is a bit sharper than a Loos ring snaffle, Eggbutt snaffle bit and D-snaffle bit.

The Full cheek snaffle bit lies stable and calm in the mouth.

In order to make an even more effective Full cheek, two straps or loops can be placed on either side of the bit and attached to the bridle. The upper ends of the sides of the full cheek fit right into these straps. These straps ensure that the sides do not get stuck under the noseband of the horse. They give a little more leverage effect, obtained by the straps, than when they are not being used.

Description rubber/plastic bit:

A rubber bit can be flexible, but also can contain a hard core. The flexible rubber bit has a steel wire running through is, so the bit can not break. The flexible bit is softer. Black rubber has the disadvantage that if a horse has a drier mouth, the bit gets hot by friction and then can burn on the tongue. When a horse produces enough saliva, a rubber bit is the softer variant of a metal bit. The plastic variant (Beris, Happy Mouth) is smoother and doesn’t have this problem.

Features straight / unjointed mouthpiece:

A unjointed bit/straight bit often works sharper than a single or double jointed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines the pressure in the mouth. A straight mouth piece with tongue port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free. The straighter and thicker the mouthpiece, the more pressure on the tongue.
