Beval bits are an intermediate type of elevator bit. It offers a step-up from a standard loose ring action, for a touch more in the way of 'brakes' & control, but is less severe than a gag (eg Continental 3-ring gag or Dutch gag; both of which certainly have their uses!). With one of these you can opt for just the right amount of poll pressure for your horse.
How a Beval bit can help improve your horse:
The Beval bit (or bevel) is a modified loose-ring snaffle bit that allows the rider to apply a moderate degree of leverage with the reins, and has 2 strength options.
>A relatively new bit design, the Beval snaffle, is sometimes called a "wonder bit”. It uses the idea of a three-ring gag, but minimizes the leverage, making it a great intermediate bit. This bit can be a good option for horses that object to the leverage of a three-ring gag type bit, but need a touch more braking power than a regular snaffle offers.
>When used with a double jointed mouthpiece, the mouthpiece offers a higher level of comfort for the horse's mouth, as it helps to reduce pinching of the lips and bars and any unwelcome 'nutcracker' action.
