Inno Sense 2.5 Eggbutt Mullen soft Bit - The Inno Sense Mullen mouthpiece is a straight bar with a slight tilt to the front. The mouthpiece is made from elastic plastic which has a rigid core. That makes it less pliable than the Flexi Soft, but it still has a soft touch to it.
Inno Sense Bits:
The Inno Sense collection kann be used for all types of horses, but are very suitable for young horses, as well as those that are very sensitive in the mouth. The used material is FDA approved, which indicates that the bits are non-toxic and they do not contain any plasticizers. The Inno Sense bits are available with four different mouth pieces and can be combined with all types of side pieces.
Horses ridden with Inno Sense bits follow the hands more easily and accepting the bit really easily and fast.
How it works:
Eggbut, D-Ring- & Full Cheek act like snaffles, they only act on rein tension - over the tongue on the lower jaw. The rein aids are transmitted more directly than with snaffle bits. The movements of restless or inexperienced rider hands are not cushioned, but passed on directly.
Since the mouthpiece is firmly attached to the ring, it lies particularly quietly in the horse's mouth. The soft transitions to the side parts make these bits particularly gentle on the muzzle. In addition, there is an additional lateral support due to the contact surface of the side parts, which, for example, makes it easier to ride turns and the limitation on the outer rein (safe rein aid). The following applies: the larger the contact area between the side part and the lip, the greater the lateral impact.
These bits are particularly suitable for horses with sensitive corners of the mouth, for horses that tend to break out over the shoulder (e.g. when turning away or when approaching jumps) or for horses that have a very restless mouth and the mouthpiece of a ring bit "playing" too much.
When tension is applied to the reins, for Multiring-, 3 Ring-, Gag- & Baucherbits the pressure is distributed to the tongue to the lower jaw first and then to the neck. This gives the rider more control again with horses that are growing strong and withdrawing upwards, because horses usually react by lowering their head when the pressure is applied to the neck.
The effect is even more pronounced with gag bits and 3-ring bits, as the leverage is greater due to the length of the side part and the extended gag cheek pieces through the bit ring. The best effect is achieved when using two pairs of reins. The main rein in the large ring acts on the tongue and lower jaw, the second pair of reins, buckled in the lower ring, can, if necessary, exert pressure on the poll via the cheek piece. For Swivel Bits, the effects are similar to 2,5 and 3-Ring bits but it has a softer effect, as well as a softer action on the jaw. A Swival is a ‘sliding’ bevel bit and presses against the cheek, making it easier to maneuver.
A prerequisite for this is of course a practiced and soulful rider's hand.

I bought this bit because I thought it was a super soft flexible rubber mouthpiece (like the Nathe) with a bit more leverage. It's not that soft. It's actually a pretty firm hard plastic. However, my horse was not upset and really seemed happy in it. And I was too as I had the brakes I needed without causing him to try to evade the bit. So far it is working really well for us. I was afraid it would be a bit too much for stadium, but so far, so good.
