A Kimberwick is a curb (leverage) bit. The further the reins slide down the Dee ring, the more leverage is applied.
Kimberwick Snaffle Bit Key Points:
- The curb chain or straps prevent the bit from rotating too far in the horse's mouth.
- When the reins are pulled back the bit applies pressure on the roof of the mouth, the chin and the poll.
- If there is a port, there may be pressure on the roof of the mouth.
- This is a bit commonly used in general riding and provides more aids to a horse that may be a strong puller or needs slight curb action to lower its head.
