Ideal for horses that like a little play in the rings and for extra sensitivity.
Now available in 6"+ sizes with small rings.
The HP Relief Oblique Lozenge Collection is an innovative range of bits, designed by John O’Leary of Horseproblems Australia in conjunction with Linda O’Leary, winner of the 'South Australian FEI Dressage Rider' and also 'Dressage Horse of the Year 2015'.
The HP Oblique lozenge does not have the major design flaw of the French Link and other cheap lozenge bits. The French Link and many lozenge bits have two protruding semicircles at 90 degrees to the flat side of the link or lozenge, which put painful pressure points on the mouth when a contact is taken—this often causes evasions. The HP Lozenge is like the Neue Schule bits in that the semicircles lie flat in the same plane as the lozenge, not at 90 degrees to it.
You will not believe the difference that these bits make to your horse’s response to the rein aids—even if you currently ride in a Myler or a lozenge.
Available in sizes 4" to 7". Small ring size is 60mm in diameter; Standard ring size is 65mm in diameter (measured outsides of metal ring, not inside)
