Single Jointed

A single jointed mouthpiece has one hinge point in the middle. When a rider takes up the reins, pressure is applied to the lips, bars, and sides of the tongue. With added pressure, the bit squeezes the tongue slightly and applies pressure to the bars. The bit also exerts pressure on the bars and the palate because it hinges upwards. Horses with thick tongues often find this bit comfortable, as the pressure on the tongue is relatively light. Horses with a low palate are generally not well suited to a single jointed mouthpiece, as the bit can quickly pinch against the palate. In such cases, it is better to choose a double-jointed or straight mouthpiece.

The single jointed mouthpiece is commonly used in the sport as a basic bit because it is suitable for many horses and riders. The mouthpiece is especially suitable for horses with a thick tongue and a high palate. A horse that already goes nicely on the bit can benefit from a single jointed mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is generally accepted by both young and trained horses. It is up to the combination of horse and rider to find the right bit, based on preference of horse and rider, At HorseOnline, you can test the bit before purchasing. A single jointed mouthpiece is FEI-approved and can be used for both jumping and dressage in competitions.
