This Weymouth and Bradoon set is specifically designed for use on double bridles which are often worn for showing or dressage (Elementary level and above). The set includes a loose ring Bradoon with a single joint that allows more movement than a fixed cheek bit and is ideal for horses that are prone to leaning and fixing. The single joint Bradoon has a nutcracker action which works on the bars of the mouth and the lips.
The Weymouth has a straight bar mouthpiece that offers a more consistent action and acts on the tongue and the bars of the mouth; the port allows extra room for the tongue. The Weymouth has some poll pressure and used in conjunction with the curb chain, applies curb groove pressure. The Weymouth is also used to refine aids and to encourage a horse to sit back on their hocks in order to perform more advanced movements.
This set requires two reins, one attaches to the snaffle Bradoon and one attaches to the Weymouth bit. A curb chain is included and can be used with a lip strap (not included) in order to keep the curb chain flat. Please note: Double bridles should be used by experienced riders and are designed for horses who already perform well in a snaffle.
