A weymouth fixed is used together with a bradoon, the socalled double bridle. This combination is used in the higher dressage classes. The weymouth is a cheekpiece with leverage. The longer the shanks the sharper the effect. The weymouth fixed has long shanks and therefore is a stronger bit than the baby weymouth fixed. For a double bridle combination a special bridle or an extra cheekpiece is required. In addition, this cheekpiece must always be combined with a curb chain to prevents the bit from rotating too far in the horse’s mouth. This bit is not suitable for the inexperienced rider.
The Inno Sense Mullen is a straight bar that slightly bends forward. This mouthpiece is fabricated of elastic synthetic material. The bit has a rigid core that makes the mullen bar not flexible but the material around it gives the bit a soft touch.
