Racing Williams Elliptical Bit
The Racing Williams cheekpiece allows for multiple rein positions. If connected to the main ring the bit acts as a loose ring, but when connected to the bottom ring it promotes poll flexion by creating more positive poll pressure. The Racing Williams cheekpiece helps to prevent drifting.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge, it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
A correctly fitting bit should have a fingers width on either side of
the horses mouth. To ensure your new bit fits correctly measure the
length of the mouthpiece from inside of the rings, as illustrated below.
Note: This is just a guideline.
