The Robart -Pinchless bit system

THERE ARE TWO ASPECTS OF PINCHLESS BITS THAT DIFFERENTIATE THEM FROM THEIR "NON-PINCHLESS" ANCESTORS:

1.Either side of the mouthpiece can be rotated independently of the other side, this is true with both a jointed mouth or a mullen mouth.
2.The bit corrects and instructs by pressure alone not by pain avoidance.

 
Pinchless system
 
In very few human activities does practice adhere to tradition more so than in Riding. Truly basic innovations in riding equipment are few and far between. So it is with the bridle and harness bit.

Changes that have taken place over the ages reflect technological advances in Metallurgy on the one hand, and design changes to obtain more control over the usually unwilling horse on the other.The concept, however, has changed little, if at all. Obstinate horse-more severe bit, more obedient horse-less severe bit.

Along comes a third generation horse trainer with a revolutionary idea and a bit design to implement it. Instead of training and working a horse on the basis of creating pain and the anticipation of pain, his bits will correct by pressure and will eliminate the pain, frequently unintentional, of pinched tongues and cheeks.

This desirable outcome results form a clever design feature: on jointed mouth bits internal bushings, one on each side of the mouth piece juncture, and on straight mouth bits, one well concealed internal bushing at the mouth piece center, permit either side of bit to rotate independently of the other side. The benefits emanating from this are several.

(1)Working one rein will NOT cause either the entire bit to rise up and hit the palate, or to pinch the tongue as commonly happens with jointed mouth bits. Horse's mouth remains closed and calm. Head tossing is all but eliminated.

(2)Either side of the horse can be worked separately. No confusion as to what the rider wants. The message is perfectly clear. The benefit of this clarity cannot be emphasized enough.

(3)Tension and stress in the horse is dramatically reduced. Horse can concentrate on leaning and on performance, not on pain avoidance.

The inventor, David Robert, has licensed the manufacture of Pinchless Bits to EASTWEST/MERRYEARN, whose quality control is without peer in the riding industry. The bits are manufactured under their METALAB mark and are available in many designs among which can be found virtually anyone's favorite.
