FES Ported Barrel Kimberwick
The Ported Barrel Kimberwick offers a comfort zone when the horse is relaxed and flexed at the poll. This bit functions as both a direct action and leverage bit using a curb strap or chain. If the rein is attached to the top hook, it works as a direct action bit, exerting the same amount of pressure on the mouth as on the reins. If the rein is attached to the bottom hook, it works like a leverage bit, tilting the mouthpiece forward and applying pressure to parts of the mouth, curb and poll.

  • Outstanding choice for horses that know the basics and moving to the next level
  • Works mainly off the bars of the mouth and allows horses to swallow
  • Reins slots offer separate leverage options to achieve desired results
  • Top slot offers direct action and lower puts pressure on the mouth, curb and poll
  • Stainless steel mouthpiece and cheeks with wide barrel port
  • Curb hooks and chain are included
  • Port height: 1"
  • Mouth: 5"
  • Bit diameter: 10mm

What bits are made of
Stainless Steel Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.
Copper Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.
Sweet Iron Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.
Rubber Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.
Aluminum Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.
Plastic Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.
Nickel Silver Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
Black Iron The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet tot he horse and increases salivation.
