The Weymouth bit is an unjointed bar bit with a strong leverage effect. It has a different, sharper action than a snaffle and is used by experienced riders to refine their aids and influence on the horse. This bit is used with two pairs of reins. It is used in conjunction with a bradoon bit.
Used improperly, the Weymouth bit can cause injury to the horse's mouth. The bridle and reins therefore require an experienced, securely guided hand and sensitive and respectful handling.
The Weymouth bit consists of the bit in the middle and two side bars, the upper tree and the lower tree. A chin chain is also attached.
The effect of the Weymouth bit is determined by the strength, shape and tongue clearance of the bit, the length of the upper and lower trees and the fitting of the chin chain. It is important that the chin chain is correctly adjusted and that the curb bit fits the mouth of the individual horse.
We recommend consulting a trainer or coach about the choice of Weymouth bit before using it.
