Ported Bits HorsesPortated Bits Horses
They are all conceived to improve the rider's tools and give the horses clear signs, while being convenient and simple for the horses to use. A lot of bits have a single bit number. Which is a portrait? In principle, a socket is an inverse" U" in the center of the nozzle for some bits.
While a very low one can only be a small climb, a very high one can be quite high above two inch at very high. The very low harbour offers space for the horses tongues and is sometimes referred to as lingual reliefs. Several bridles have a harbour, but are most often seen on kerbs.
A number of harbours also have a role connecting the two arms of the "U". It is a high portal that not only relieves the strain on the horses tongues, but also exerts strain on the horse's mouths when the rein is drawn. When used inappropriately, highly porous teeth can be very dangerous or harmful to a horse's jaw.
If you are holding the teeth in your hands, it seems to be sticking upright, but if it is correctly seated in the horse's jaw, the pin will lie down on your reed until you use the reining aid. According to how the reigns are managed, the harbour can then turn slightly upwards.
He should not turn so much that he presses into the horse's throat. A port that does not consist of a "U" stick is actually referred to as a spadron or stick, although it looks a little similar. They do not relieve the strain on the lingual system. It can be equipped with complex wheels or "grilling", twin mouths and is only used on very well educated horses by skilful horsemen who know the weight of the teeth used.
In general, bits with sockets do not have articulated mouths, although there are some that have hinges on both sides of the socket. Harbours are located on west, east and west English railway lines. Generally they are intended for experienced riders, where the horses have to react better to the rider's tools.
You will see harbours on many west bits used at rodeos and reinings, and often also on the kerb of a kerb. When bits with hard-wired harddisks are abused, they can be very serious in comparison to the same bits without a por. If there is no kerb anchor that prevents the teeth from turning in the horse's jaws, teeth with hooks can be used in a very uncomfortable way for the horses.
In general, you don't need a harbour for the pleasures of horseback rides, unless your horses benefit from the place where they have their tongues.
