Dressage Forward Port
The Dressage Port allows for tongue relief and is angled slightly forward. This forward angle encourages the nose to extending slightly past the vertical.
It is recommended for a horse with a narrow lower jaw and fleshy lips.
The Dressage Port offers tongue relief due to the medium port, pressure is spread across the bars. The Dressage Port is not curved, therefore it applies slightly more bar pressure than the Happy Tongue. The Dressage Port is a solid mouthpiece and will not create a squeeze on the bars. The narrower port will give slightly less tongue relief, but it is better suited to horse’s that have a narrow lower jaw. The Dressage Port is available in Sweet Iron and Titanium. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The Titanium material was designed as an alternative metal option to sweet iron, this metal was specifically chosen due to its hypoallergenic nature. The solid, Dressage Port, has no movement. The 3 available ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.
