The Neue Schule Waterford Balding Running Cheek Horse Bit is a popular choice for those with very strong horses who have a tendency to set themselves or pull down as it acts as a deterrent for horses that grab the bit and go.
The combination of the Waterford mouthpiece and the gag action (lift within the mouth) of the Balding Running Cheeks makes it virtually impossible for the horse to grab the bit.
As the Waterford bends in every direction it usually suits all types of mouth conformation, including big fat tongues. This slimmer innovative Waterford mouthpiece features a lip shelf which eradicates the previously common problem of rubs.
The loose ring on the cheek piece is more flexible, discouraging the horse from leaning, which may happen with the fixed cheek. Two reins allow the rider to differentiate between the snaffle action and the gag action (lift within the mouth). However, many riders only employ the gag rein which maximises on control and lift from the shoulder. Use either in conjunction with our own rolled leather cheeks, aesthetically pleasing and softer in their action, or our rope cheeks that have a sharper action as they slip back and forth through the cheeks more quickly.
