The Classic Equine 7-1/2 in. Floating Spade is extremely versatile. This bit can be used for training drills, pleasure riding, or competition. This cheek has a 2-1/2 in. purchase with a 5 in. shank. The shank is swept back, like the 6 in. model, but to a lesser degree, which offers more leverage and control. When properly adjusted, it is still considered a mild cheek, but one with plenty of leverage for control at increased speeds. The Floating Spade has a stainless steel cheek with inlaid copper floating spade mouthpiece. The mouthpiece wraps over the tongue with applied pressure. This is a great bit to introduce a horse to palate pressure as you transition to ported bits and taller corrections.
