JP Korsteel offers the unique JP Curved Design. This unique design features curved bars that prevent the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and eliminate the nutcracker-like action that can pinch a horse's tongue. Features oval-shaped fixed eggbutt rings, made from stainless steel which does not flake or rust and is extremely durable and an oval link mouthpiece which relieves some of the pressure on the tongue when the rein aids are applied. Because the link is rounded, this mouthpiece is considered slightly milder than a French link. Made from stainless steel which does not flake or rust and is extremely durable.
