This is a Ported Beris Flexible Loose Ring horse bit which allows for tongue mobility without loosing effectiveness. It is a great alternative for strong horses with sensitive mouths. The flexible mouthpiece allows for a relaxed mouth and encourages salivation and chewing.
An unjointed bit/straight bit often works sharper than a single or double jointed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines the pressure in the mouth. Straighter and thicker mouthpieces produce more pressure on the tongue.
This straight, flexible mouth piece with tongue port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free allowing for strong control/pressure when necessary but tongue freedom when resting.
