The Inno Sense Flexi Soft bits are made of elastic synthetic material and are very flexible. The bit features a flexible metal core. Because of the flexibility, this is a friendly bit and most horses accept this very well. The hanging cheek (also known as baucher) is an eggbutt variant where smaller rings are attached on top of the eggbutt rings. The cheekpieces attach to the upper rings, and reins attach to the lower/eggbutt rings. Contrary to popular belief, the hanging cheek does not increase poll pressure and has no leverage effect, making this a relatively gentle bit compared to other designs.
Bits from the Inno Sense collection can be used for every horse and are particularly suitable for young horses and/or horses with a sensitive mouth. The synthetic material is FDA approved, which means the material does not contain plasticizers and is nontoxic to humans and animals. Inno Sense mouthpieces are significantly softer than metal mouthpieces, and must be correctly placed in a horse’s interdental space so teeth do not damage the mouthpiece. If a horse’s teeth damage the mouthpiece, it is not considered a manufacturing defect.
