Providing the combined effect of a port and the positive characteristics of the butterfly bar, the profile of the beris KONNEX bar is slimmer and it positions itself very comfortably in the horse’s mouth. There is also more room available as the port in the beris KONNEX bar is significantly wider. Suitable for horses with little space in the mouth e.g. thoroughbred types or older horses (due to change in tooth alignment), horses with large tongues and, in particular, ones sensitive to pressure points on the tongue. The increased pressure from using the second rein on the gag bit causes the bit to rotate 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 useful on horses for achieving 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: ever piece of metal parts is shaped formed by hand, welded and polished to perfection.
The innovative design of the mouthpiece also ensures a better acceptance of the bit and facilitates 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
