The MB 47 is a traditional correctional mouthpiece, which has a ported mouthpiece that collapses on to the outer lip and bars, and rotates on to the tongue. The MB 47 is identical to the MB 47PB but lacks Independent Side Movement. Sweet Iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.
NO Independent Side Movement
Sweet Iron mouthpiece
Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips or bars
Notes: This mouthpiece is the correctional version of the MB 43HP. For the same mouthpiece but with Independent Side Movement, see the MB 47PB. For the non-correctional version and little to no palate pressure, see the MB 43LP. For more concentrated tongue pressure and some palate pressure with Independent Side Movement™, see the MB 27PB HP. For less tongue pressure and some palate pressure with Independent Side Movement, see the MB 43HP.
The 5" HBT shank is stainless steel and slightly curved back, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece has a fixed attachment. The HBT shank has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each other. The purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. It has an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The HBT shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll.
Degree of Leverage: Mild
Notes: The HBT is well suited to trail riding as the shorter shank makes grazing easier for the horse.
