Dressage Plate Petros
The Dressage Plate is narrower than the conventional Control Plate and applies sharper tongue pressure.
The Petros mouthpieces rotate preventing the horse taking hold of the bit. Often good for a horse that leans or tries to take hold of the bit.
The Dressage Plate creates a pressure on the tongue. The plate is angled at 45 degrees to sit flat on the horses tongue, the center component is thinner than the Control Plate 45 therefore, tongue pressure is sharper as pressure is applied over a smaller surface area. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a double break, it will create a squeeze on the bars – however this squeeze on the bars is less than the squeeze created by a single jointed mouthpiece. The Dressage Plate is available in Sweet Iron. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The double break, Dressage Plate, is a flexible mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
