Mikmar's New High-Tech Bit Offers the Perfect Connection Between Horse and Rider

January 31, 2007- Well known for innovative and effective bit designs, The Mikmar Bit Company breaks the mold again in introducing its newest sensation, ”The Flexion Combo”, based on the highly successful original Combination Bit. “The Flexion Combo promises to be our best performer yet,” says Dan Weyand, president of Mikmar. “ It’s a new design that crosses all riding styles and disciplines, and can help anyone better communicate with their horse.”

Like the original Mikmar Combination Bit, The Flexion Combo disperses pressure to the nose, mouth, chin and poll, and provides the versatility of three areas for rein placement. However, the new design offers stainless steel, swiveling cheek pieces that function independently, with fixed purchases to ensure a steady bridle connection. The moveable cheek action aids in lifting each side of the horses’ shoulders and frame separately. Suede tubing has been added to the nose-rope for stability, feel and looks. The Flexion Combo is available with the Mikmar Jointed or Standard mouthpiece. The Jointed mouthpiece affords the rider a softer, more lateral connection. The Standard mouthpiece provides more leverage and a solid feel. Both are excellent for achieving balance, lateral and vertical flexion and control.

The Flexion Combo has been in the development process for 3 years and has been tested by professionals, as well as amateur and junior riders. “We love principles and results of the original Mikmar Combination Bit, and wanted to develop something similar in function that would appeal to more people. The Flexion Combo offers more flexibility and a softer feel, and that will be useful to a wider variety of riders and horses at all levels,” says Kim Weyand, vice-president of Mikmar.

Recently at AETA, The American Equestrian Tack and Apparel Expo in Richmond, Virginia, the Flexion Combo was Mikmar’s debuting headliner. It was highly praised by industry veterans, tack stores and vendors, as well as riders visiting the exhibit. “People can’t wait to try it,” Dan Weyand stated. “We have European riders who have been asking for this swiveling version of our Combination Bit for the past few years. We worked hard on this design, and after many prototypes and test rides, we finally dialed in the perfect way for it to function. Many different levels of horses and riders will benefit from the unique, kind, yet effective control that this bit offers.” The Mikmar Bit Company… changing the horseworld one mouth at a time.
