This is a perfect bit when changing from a snaffle to a Weymouth in Dressage as it enables precise action on the mouth and poll of the horse. Gentle pressure is directed on the poll by attaching the rein onto the lower ring and the cheekpiece onto the upper smaller one. Combined with simultaneous pressure on the tongue, the horse is gently directed to the correct low/downward poll positioning. Together with the excellent features of the KK ULTRA mouthpiece the rider is able to achieve great results with an improved, consistent contact.
KK ULTRA – Compared to conventional bits, the double jointed KK ULTRAs have a middle link – also known as the bean – that is shortened and angled forward by 45°.
Only with this angle the middle link lies gently on the tongue resulting in even and constant contact to allow clear instructions through the reins.
The innovative KK ULTRA bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitvity of the horse‘s tongue which multiplies the perceptions from signals given by the bit. When the reins are pulled the middle part of the KK ULTRA fully rests on the tongue without squeezing and the connection rings roll on the tongue. The tongue‘s sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions can be given.
The KK ULTRA bits provide an incomparable precisely contact between rider and horse. A huge improvement can normally be seen immediately when switching to a KK ULTRA bit.
The anatomically adapted mouthpiece is very comfortable for the horse as the rider can give softer instructions and the horse‘s suppleness is supported harmoniously.
