    Elevators (Western)

    An elevator bit was originally developed for western riding, but nowadays, showjumpers have also discovered the use of these bits. The western bits in this category are the ones that can and may be used for multiple equestrian disciplines. This bit can be used with 1 or 2 reins. Additionally, a pelham strap or "bridge" can be used, which connects the bottom of the shank to the middle part of the bit. When using this strap, only 1 rein is used. The elevator can also be used in combination with a curb chain.

    This bit gives the effect that the horse's head can be elevated and put more on the hindquarters. This is advantageous for making sharp turns and bends. Due to the significant leverage of this bit, it is only suitable for strong horses. The bit has a strong action, and a gentle hand of the rider is required, making it unsuitable for a beginner or inexperienced rider.

    An elevator bit is often used in the sport by professionals. It is an auxiliary piece that must be used with care. An elevator bit has a leverage effect, making it suitable only for horses that are strong in the hand. The horse must have a stable foundation before being ridden with an elevator bit. At HorseOnline, you can test the bit before purchasing it. An elevator bit is FEI-approved but may only be used for showjumping and in western competitions.
