Beris bit Full Cheek Ported Nelson Gag
The Nelson Gag - Like the cheltenham and balding gags, it is recommended to be used with two reins. The second running rein causes a tipping effect of the bit whilst moving the mouthpiece back to the edge of the mouth. This means a stronger effect on the lip, upper bar as well as the tongue. Useful to improve the outline and add additional brakes, working well for horses that tend to lean on the bit, fall on the forehand or need to reach a higher collection.
In addition the Nelson Gag has full cheeks combined to give much better steering and direction, making it a very popular bit for showjumping.
The Ported Mouthpiece - This bit can be placed perfectly in the horse's mouth. The horse's tongue gets enough space because of the flattened area on the port. Many horses react to this with more relaxation and chewing. Therefore this bit is perfect for horses that won't tolerate pressure on the tongue and react with head shaking and such.
At the same time this bit is a good choice for horses that like to play with their tongue and get it over the bit. The port will help to prevent that by removing centre tongue pressure.
