I drive Dartmoor ponies in Combined Driving Events. I have 3 ponies each with their own special needs and issues in each of the three phases of the events. Complicating all of this is their physical characteristics - wide shallow mouths and small heads (they are 12.1H tall).
Most bits that are wide enough are too bulky to look right and too thick for their mouths. Smaller bits pinch. I came to A Bit Special with a request for a Happy Mouth Mullen mouthpiece attached to a 2 slot fixed cheek pony sized liverpool bit. 2 weeks later I had it and it was perfect.
Then I asked for the mouthpiece from a Dr. Bristol bit except with the link twisted (a French link lozenge is too bulky) 90 degrees and attached once again to a fixed cheek liverpool in pony size. Once again they came through.
I am in the process of ordering 4 more and expect that by the end of this year every Dartmoor driver in the US will have this bit. The service is fabulous, the products are perfection and the prices are reasonable. What more could one ask?
