The MB 43LP does not rotate on to the tongue, but instead sits solidly across the bars and lips of the horses mouth. The port is narrower than a Level 3 mouthpiece, but still offers room for the horses tongue to pass under the bit. Because the port is narrow, when the reins are engaged, the horse will feel a slight pressure on the outside edges of the tongue a gentle reminder rather than a strong reprimand. The port on this mouthpiece is only 1 " high, so it will apply little to no palate pressure. It is the mildest of the Level 2-3 mouthpieces in terms of tongue pressure, just one step below a Level 3 mouthpiece.
NO Independent Side Movement
Stainless Steel Mouthpiece
The dee without hooks is a traditional "D" shaped cheek with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece. This style keeps the mouthpiece from draping on the tongue, providing a more direct signal than the loose ring. The straight side of the dee will not pull through the mouth and does not pinch.
