8" Calvary Ported Bit

Stainless steel cheek with an inlaid copper ported mouthpiece. 

8" Calvary: 1-1/2" X 2" Port

The final in the series, the 1-1/2"x1-3/4" Port bit offers the highest degree of leverage and control. The higher port increases the degree of contact with the palate while offering tongue relief with it's 1-1/2" width. The solid mouthpiece applies additional pressure to the tongue, bars, and corners of the mouth. Chin pressure is also realized by the curb and varies in intensity with the style. This bit is for the finished horse and it is a tool for collection. It does not work well for flexing exercises. It is commonly used on well-broke, older horses in competition and for schooling horses to be more responsive.

8" Calvary Cheek Series:
final cheek in the Tool Box is designed for the finished, well broke
performance horse or tough mouthed older horses where the rider needs
more control.  It can be used as a schooling bit to get a horse to
collect and break at the poll that is not responding to milder bits.  It
is also commonly used in competition in all disciplines, but should not
be used all of the time for practice or daily training.  The purchase
is 2-1/2" and the shank 5-1/2".  the calvary designed shank is angled
back to the horse, but at a straighter angle than the 7-1/2" model,
causing a quicker, more immediate response.  The purchase/shank
alignment ratio increases leverage, creating greater realized pressure
to all points of contact of the mouth and chin
