This New Unique design of this bit is becoming very popular especially amongst professional showjumping riders due to it's dual action function.
The bit acts as a normal double jointed bit but if the horse pulls or resists the riders aids, then the second action is activated initiating a mullen mouth effect and as soon as the horse backs down it positions itself comfortably back in the horse's mouth without creating any pressure.
The benefits for using a KK style link bit is that it takes the pressure off the horse's tongueand has a strong action on demand. This also prevents the bit from performing a nutcracker effect. ie:hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and squeeing of the horse's tongue. This bit doesn't wrap around the jaw thus providing flexibility on the side bars. Self learning by the horse is improved and communication with the rider becomes a lot better.
The Stainless Steel mouthpiece provides a comfortable fit and is designed with the horse's welfare in mind.
