If you would describe your horse as something with the following;
Pulling on the bit, but overreact on too much pressure.
Unsteady and sensitive.
Needs to seek the bit more
John is a Double-jointed sweet taste bit.
The design is 100% smooth, all away around the joints. The joints will never interfere or push against the palate or lay on top of the bars. A very comfortable bit that shapes naturally around the tongue.
This design is ideal for horses that easily get wounds.
We design them that way to keep the balance point (BP) in the mouth. If you have a bigger bend forward, you will also move the BP forward and slowing down the process of your aids. More stable and less confusing for your horse.
It has also been shown to protect the bars and flesh from burn marks and wounds on the most sensitive horse.
