FOR ALL DISCIPLINES.
The Mikmar Medium Shank Combination Bit offers the same function and options as the Mikmar Combination Bit, but provides more leverage due to its longer shank. The shank is 1-3/4 inches longer than the standard Combination Bit. As the rider applies pressure to the reins, it sends a stronger signal to the nose, mouth (bars and tongue), chin, and poll areas. The greater pressure results in more control for those riders desiring it.
- The Combination Bits DISPERSE PRESSURE to the nose, mouth, chin, and poll areas. The light-weight design works well for all disciplines.
- The Combination Bits are VERSATILE, offering different options for leverage and function. You can attach a single rein to 3 different areas on the bit- the nose rope, the lower area of the shank or the shank at the corner of the mouth.
You can use double reins in combination to any of the 3 areas.
Attaching a rein to the NOSE ROPE puts mild pressure across the nose and takes some concussion out of the mouth. It softens the feel of the bit, and slows it's action by dispersing the pressure to 4 areas on the head. The nose, mouth, chin and poll.
The Combination Bit DISCOURAGES bit evasions like head tossing and high headedness, pulling, rooting, and defensive, nervous behaviors.
The Combination Bit ENCOURAGES responsiveness, correct head carriage, lateral and vertical flexion, collection, control, and relaxation.
Excellent for COMPETITIVE events like Barrel Racing, Penning, or Jumping, yet extremely popular for Trail/Pleasure riding.
GAITED Riders can maintain a steady connection and encourage collection, helping the horse maintain their proper gaits consistently, without over-bitting, resulting in a smoother ride.
