more of a curve than its jointed counterparts and it is therefore
better suited to the shape of the horse’s mouth. By allowing the horse
to move it gently with his tongue, it reduces the amount of tongue
pressure associated with the jointed mouths and encourages the horse to
accept the bit.
• Most horses more readily accept the French link and
are more comfortable in their mouths, due to its unique ability to flex
as the horse requires.
• The full cheek prevents the bit from being
pulled through the horse’s mouth. Correctly used with fulmer keepers
(sold separately), the mouthpiece cannot be turned over in the horse’s
mouth while at work. Also, the full cheek provides more lateral control
by creating light pressure on the horse’s cheeks.
