For young horses and horses with a sensitive mouth, the bits in the Inno Sense line are particularly suitable. The bits Inno Sense bits are made of an elastic synthetic material. The synthetic material is FDA approved, which means the material does not contain plasticizers and is non-toxic. The bit lets young horses get familiar with pressure in the mouth in a pleasant manner. The bits of the Inno Sense line can be divided into four groups.
– Inno Sense Flexi Soft
– Inno Sense Mullen
– Inno Sense Medium port
– Inno Sense Hard port
Inno Sense Flexi soft bits incorporate a flexible mouthpiece. The bit has a flexible metal core. Horses ridden with a flexible mouthpiece follow the hand easily and accept the bit quickly. Bits with a flexible mouthpiece can be used for all horses yet are a particularly good choice for horses with a sensitive mouth. The bits of the Inno Sense line are not suitable for strong horses or horses with a hard mouth.
The Inno Sense Mullen is a straight bar that bends forward lightly. It is harder than the Inno Sense Flexi soft, but because of the synthetic material also suited for horses with a sensitive mouth. The bit has a rigid core that makes the Mullen bar not flexible, yet the material around it gives the bit a soft touch.
The Inno Sense Medium port is slightly harder than the flexi soft. This bit is suitable for horses with a thick or sensitive tongue. The mouthpiece has a port that creates space for the tongue and decreases the pressure on the centre of the horse’s tongue. The slightly flexible mouthpiece makes it a friendly bit. The bit is a popular choice for horses with a tongue problem.
And finally, there is the Inno Sense hard port bit. This bit is slightly harder than the medium port. Because of the shape, the middle of the tongue is more relieved. This bit is hardly flexible.
This is a gag bit, but with a very different effect. A normal gag the gag ropes are attached to the cheek pieces. The curb gag has an extra ring that is attached on top of the bit ring and to the cheek pieces. The gag ropes go through the eyes of the bit, but then they join underneath the chin instead of being attached to the bridle. By pressure on the reins, it will give extra pressure on the lower jaw/chin.
This bit is sharp and give a lot of pressure with a unsteady hand and is therefore not suitable for the inexperienced riders or horses.
