Description Weymouth:

The Weymouth bit is always used together with a Bradoon bit. This is a combination of two bits that are used in the higher classes, mainly dressage. The Weymouth is always used in combination with a curb  chain. The rings of the Bradoon are smaller than normal, so there is  enough room left for the leverage functioning of the Weymouth. For the Weymouth and Bradoon a special bridle is required or extra cheekpieces.

This combination of the two bits is used to get the head and neck of the horse in the required position. A Weymouth combination should only be used by very experienced riders and a horse that is well trained and can tolerate some pressure.

Nickle, Aurigan and Cyperium:

A bit made of nickle is a bit that is composed of 60% copper and 40% stainless steel. Aurigan is made of 80% copper and 20% stainless steel. Cyperium is 90% copper and 10% stainless steel.

An alloy of copper and stainless steel gives a sweet taste in the mouth of the horse. The saliva production is stimulated by the taste and the horse accepts the bit easier. The larger the proportion of copper, the more flavor and softer the bit.

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.
