The Elliptical “B” is a shorter lozenge, which gives a similar action as the Buster Roller. It encourages the horse to lift its head by applying bar pressure, but it is slightly softer than the Buster roller due to the bigger surface area on the tongue. The lozenge on the tongue will keep the horse’s attention on the bit and will increase pressure bringing the chin in.
The Elliptical B has a shorter lozenge than a normal elliptical, this results in the Elliptical B applying sharper tongue pressure than a standard elliptical as the pressure is concentrated onto 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 – this squeeze on the bars is less than the squeeze created by a single jointed mouthpiece but more than most double jointed mouthpieces.
The Elliptical B 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, Elliptical B, is a flexible mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
