    • This ported bar has an especially flattened port design. This gives the tongue optimum room. Many horses respond to this with more suppleness and increased chewing. This bit is also well suited to horses that play with their tongues, trying to put their tongue over the bit, as the port prevents this effectively. Therefore this bit is eminently suited to horses that don’t like conventionally shaped bits due to the pressure on the tongue and respond with head-shaking or similar. The full cheek bit sits very quietly and is very stable in the mouth. It provides reliable lateral restriction without the risk of the skin or lips being pinched by the angled supports. Useful on horses that need more support and guidance around turns, like young and inexperienced ones or very strong ones. The full cheek bit is very popular with show jumpers for turning quickly. The increased pressure from using the second rein on the gag bit causes the bit to tilt and be pulled upwards in the mouth. This results in a stronger effect. Very useful with horses that tend to lean on the bit. Likewise, also used on horses to achieve increased elevation.

 

  • Bits for the ambitious leisure rider and professional alike.
    The beris bit factory in Schleswig-Holstein came into being as the result of years of manufacturing bits, the experience gained from this, skilled craftmanship and passion for equestrian sport:
    Out of passion for the horse.
    The protection of the horse"s sensitive mouth is most important to beris. From bit ring to the complicated cheekpieces: every piece of metal is shaped by hand, welded and polished to perfection.
    The innovative design of the mouthpiece also ensures a better acceptance of the bit and facilitates subtle communication between horse and rider. The beris mouthpieces are made of a food safe plastic compound, processed and with a surface finish unequalled so far in the field of plastic bits. Their surface is very smooth and they slide easily in the mouth, even if the horse doesn´t produce much saliva. Practically all horses like our mouthpieces. They produce saliva, chew more and accept the bit readily. True craftsmanship Made in Germany
