Elliptical Roller Petros
The Elliptical Roller is made of brass or sweet iron, which is designed to heighten the horses awareness of the bit. When the rein is used this mouthpiece wraps across the tongue creating tongue pressure and reducing bar pressure. Please note appearances may be deceiving, this bit joint is stronger than the Control Plate as pressure is more concentrated on the tongue.
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 Elliptical Roller Petros creates a stable, constant pressure point on the tongue. The centerpiece is a smooth roller that will keep the horses attention on the bit. The Elliptical Roller Petros creates more tongue pressure than an Elliptical due to the longer middle piece, this longer middle piece also reduces squeezing pressure on the bars but will increase direct bar pressure.
The Petros prevents the horse from being able to hold onto the mouthpiece. It is a softer option than cherry rollers as the surface area is smooth. As the horse tries to grab the bit, the rollers will roll, preventing the horse from getting a purchase on the bit.
The Elliptical Roller Petros 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 Roller Petros, is a flexible mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
