Often used for strong horses with a tendency to set themselves or pull down. The combination of this mouthpiece and the action of the running cheeks makes it virtually impossible for them to grab the bit. As the Waterford is flexible and bends in every direction it usually suits all types of mouth conformation, including big fat tongues. This slimmer innovative Waterford mouthpiece features our ergonomic LipSMART shelf usually eradicating the previously common problem of rubs. The loose ring is more flexible, discouraging the horse from leaning, which may happen with a fixed cheek. Two reins allow the rider to differentiate between the snaffle action and the running cheek action that provides poll pressure. However, many riders successfully only employ the running cheek rein which maximizes on control and lift from the shoulder.
