The Drop Cheek has an Eggbutt like ring at the mouthpiece for the rein, with an upper cheek that has a ring at its end, to which the cheek piece of the bridle is attached. The mouthpiece does not slide on its ring resulting in light poll pressure. The cheek pieces lie flat against the horse’s face, and the mouthpiece is quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars.
The Elliptical Dressage Control spreads pressure over the tongue. The mouth pieces are curved Comfy to soften the bar pressure. The mouth pieces and lozenge are ground flat to distribute the pressure evenly over tongue and bars, which together with the offset links further reduce pressure points. Allowing for a more accepted and relaxed contact, the horse will draw its head back and tuck its chin in, finding a better balance of control.
The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony.
