The 8-1/2” cheek style is next in the lineup. Extremely versatile, this bit can be used for training drills, pleasure riding, or competition. This cheek has a 2-1/2” purchase with a 5” shank. The shank is swept back, like the 6” model, but to a lesser degree, which offers more leverage and control. When properly adjusted, it is still considered a mild cheek, but one with plenty of leverage for control at increased speeds. The Correction is extremely popular with performance riders and trainers. Taller port creates more palate pressure. Mouthpiece wraps the mouth, applying increased pressure to the sides of the tongue. Designed for finished, well-broke horses of all discipline.
