Control Plate Dressage Polito
The Dressage Plate is narrower than the conventional Control Plate and applies stronger tongue pressure due to the smaller surface area.
The Polito mouthpieces are flattened. This allows a larger surface area across the bars and tongue when the bit is not in use, however, when contact is taken up, the mouthpiece rotates onto the narrower surface area, thus increasing the pressure.
