Only 10mm or 12mm. diameter for thick tongues and flater palates, to give room.

Small rings for ponies on the smaller bit sizes - down to 2" Diameter.

Due to the Anatomical design of these bits, you will probably need a size 1/2" smaller than your normal bit.

About HP Relief Mouthpiece Barrel Bits

These bits take away the 'Nutcracker' action of the single jointed bit and replace it with a much kinder action. The pressure is evenly spread across the bars loose ring bitand the tongue as the bit folds around the mouth.

The rings are smaller than those of other bits to prevent them from rubbing the outside of the face and making it sore.

The mouthpiece has also been re-designed with more curve, to give a better shape to fit the horse's mouth properly, reducing the bar pressure even further and preventing bit 'Slide'.

The mouthpiece has the optimum 10mm. diameter - narrower than a Myler - to ensure the horse's tongue and palate are not impinged by the bit and that the horse can seal his mouth and swallow. Try it yourself - it is very difficult to swallow unless your lips form a seal on your mouth. Wide bits prevent this..

There are no 'Slots' on these bits. They have the option of a Beval'' design which does not rub on the horse's face the way that 'lumpy' slots can.

The Lip Relief bits have all the benefits of a loose ring action, but totally prevent the trapping and pinching of the lips.
