Already the first generation of our Acavallo Gel Bit Guards was a great international success. However, Acavallo wouldn’t live up to their claims of being a technical innovation leader in the equestrian equipment industry, if they weren’t striving for a continuous improvement of their products.
With the development and design of the new CONTOURED Gel Bit Guards, theywant to implement new standards for this product in terms of its functionality, durability and compliance with different national horse show regulations.
Featuring a concave (curved inward) shape on their inner surface (to the mouth) and a convex (curved outward) shape on their outer surface (to the bit ring), these bit guards eliminate the need of the formerly used projecting protectors. The advantages of this new design are quite obvious: Risks of rubbing or chafing on the outer skin of the mouth corners are mitigated, as these sensitive areas remain widely untouched. Furthermore, the free movability of the bit and the bit rings, as well as the natural chewing mechanism of the horse, are not inhibited in any way. Once attached to the bit, the special soft gel material keeps the bit guards in their correct position, avoiding rotation or other unwanted movements and enhancing a precise and undisturbed bit control by the rider. Suited for all equestrian disciplines.
The bit guards are quite flexible so should fit relatively easily ontomost types of bit. If you are having trouble then usually a short soakin warm water can help.
