Cupreon 18mm thickness, 90mm cheek- Stainless Steel
This bit maximizes the benefits of the loose ring and Eggbutt style cheek pieces. The 90mm ring accommodates the wider Eggbutt connection. This useful cheek allows the mouthpiece to move, encouraging acceptance, mouthing and softening, while the wide Eggbutt style connection prevents the bit from pinching and sliding through the mouth. The Cupreon Ergöm Lozenge Mouthpiece is the perfect compliment to this cheek due to its fit and function. Advantageous for all levels of training and competition, this bit is an excellent tool for achieving balance and connection.
The Mikmar Bit Company is proud to introduce "Cupreon" a new material created exclusively for Mikmar, specifically for horses. This new material exemplifies Mikmar's dedication to producing innovative products that continue to improve communication between horse and rider. Favorable to horses, "Cupreon" is a superior quality Copper alloy. Due to the composition and oxidation process, this appealing and highly palatable formulation promotes salivation and mouthing of the bit. It is non-toxic and Nickel free. It warms easily in the mouth and is well accepted by horses including those which are hard to bit. The addition of other metals improves Copper, making "Cupreon" a durable alloy with longevity. The unique new alloy "Cupreon" is patent pending and available only through the Mikmar Bit Company.
**The Ergöm Lozenge Mouthpiece
The Cupreon Ergöm Lozenge Mouthpiece is a double- jointed mouthpiece with a unique center link. The Ergöm Lozenge is a grooved center link and is an ideal size and shape for effectiveness and comfort. The bars of the mouthpiece measure 16mm in diameter and are curved, fitting properly and conforming to each individual horses mouth. The shape of the mouthpiece eliminates the undesirable "nutcracker action" with no palate interference. The Cupreon Ergöm Lozenge Mouthpiece is designed to reduce pinching of the tongue. It also softens excessive pressure to the outside of the mouth by evening it out with a more consistent feel over the tongue. Mikmars new "Cupreon" encourages saliva production and helps keep the mouth soft and fresh over time. Horses accept the mouthpiece well; they chew and relax, resulting in a horse that is content and better prepared to perform.
