Consider this bit as a mini american gag yet with a neutral mouthpiece. Shank length is legal for eventing
A elevator positions the mouthpiece in the middle of the cheekpiece making the purchase and shank equal length. The Elevator Loren purchase and shank are curved slightly backward, allowing for a nose-out head position when working. The Elevator Loren is designed to apply both poll pressure and leverage to the mouth piece; although the curved back shank and purchase helps to reduce some of the leverage that the longer purchase creates. As a fixed cheekpiece, it should be fitted snug to reduce any sliding of the mouthpiece, but therefore also applies the leverage to the mouthpiece very quickly, requiring good hands.
Shank Length: 10cm
