The Sprenger KK Weymouth - also referred to as the "Balkenhol Weymouth" -- works completely differently that a bit with a high port. This is because the KK Weymouth is specially angled 45 degrees to the front such that when the reins are pulled, the port moves down on the tongue and no pressure is applied to the palate.
This bit is a great choice for a horse with a sensitive mouth, and is also suitable for introducing a horse to a weymouth.
This bit has a mouthpiece made of Aurigan. Aurigan, (85% Copper, 4% Silicon, 11% Zinc), produces the distinctive and pleasant taste horses love. It encourages them to chew and produce saliva which leads to rapid acceptance of the bit. Aurigan is a Nickel free alloy which, due to the inclusion of Silicon, combines the oxidation advantages of pure copper with maximum strength.
Lower cheek is 7 cm.
