With the Stubben EZ Control Bit, they have developed a bit that is very effective and has a strong action on demand, yet positioned soft and comfortable in the horse's mouth. This unique design is flexible on the sides and has an enhanced effect with minimum pressure on the reins. It allows for gentle and sensitive aids while enabling an easier communication between horse and rider. Stubben developed this bit with the help of Top-class and professional show jumpers. Their horses (show jumpers) often have a very strong impulsion, making it difficult at times for the rider to bring the horse back before each jump. When using too severe bits however, horses become too cautious, resulting in a lack of speed and power in the jumping course.
