This Square Port bit has a slight angle on the port to lay nicely in a horse's mouth, that way the port is not exsuding palate pressure unless leverage is applied to the shanks of the bit. Ridges in the twisted wire bars motivate horses to not brace against the rider's hands.This bit would be great for a seasoned rope horse that you need to "hold" in the box by the angle on the port and smooth bar mouthpiece will rest nicely in a horse's mouth. The square edges on this port is more pressure than that of a rounded port, thus encouraging a horse to flex vertically at the poll. The 8" Cavalry cheek will also add additional leverage to the bars, chin and poll adding to the vertical flexion.
