“Cupreon" is a material created exclusively for Mikmar, specifically for horses. This material exemplifies Mikmars dedication to producing innovative products that continue to improve communication between horse and rider. Favorable to horses, “Cupreon" is a superior quality Copper alloy. Due to the composition and oxidation process, this appealing and highly palatable formulation promotes salivation and mouthing of the bit. It is non-toxic and Nickel free. It warms easily in the mouth and is well accepted by horses including those, which are hard to bit. The addition of other metals improves Copper making “Cupreon" a durable alloy with longevity.
This bit offers a Two Ring cheek made of high quality stainless steel and Mikmars Cupreon “Simple-Center" 16mm Mouthpiece. The Two Ring is wonderful for achieving elevation and lightness, without over bitting the horse. It is an excellent choice for transitioning from any snaffle style bit when desiring more collection.The double-jointed mouthpiece conforms nicely to the mouth and eliminates the undesirable "nutcracker action" often associated with bit evasion and defensive behavior. Great for correcting horses that lug on or grab the bit, or those that tend to be strung out. The top ring that the bridle attaches to gives the bit stability and adds mild poll pressure. The two lower rings offer leverage action and a gag effect. There are two areas for rein placement: the ring at the corner of the mouth gives a milder feel and the lower offers more leverage. A very nice choice for all disciplines.
