We love this bit because not only does the port give more room for the horse's tongue in the mouth, but the unique Konnex shape allows the bit to rest more comfortably in the mouth as well.
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 shape and weight of the sidepieces ensures a still, neutral position in the mouth.
This characteristic makes the bit ideally suited to young horses that are still a bit green. The shape of the sidepiece also gives them optimum lateral support and guidance. Good and quiet handling of the reins is also facilitated by the large ring.
