MIKMAR BIT COMPANY RELEASES THE NEW “FEATHER BIT”: MORE CONTROL WITH A LIGHT TOUCH

After two years of testing and development, The Mikmar Feather Bit is a streamlined version of Mikmar’s half-a-century-old foundation bit.

The New Mikmar Feather Bit is a streamlined version of the Mikmar Training Bit and Combination Bit. It offers a slimmer mouthpiece and a detachable leather-wrapped nose rope, making it convenient for showing. The attractive cheek piece design is functional for competition as well. The Mikmar Feather Bit offers four points of pressure that encourage proper head carriage while discouraging bit evasion. Suitable for all breeds and styles of riding, the Feather Bit is available in both 5.25 and 5.5 mouthpiece sizes. The Feather Bit is designed using the latest in lightweight metal materials and is innovative, high-quality construction.

“Technology has finally evolved to the point that we can produce this next generation of Mikmar Bits. This bit is so versatile and so adaptable for so many breeds and disciplines,” said Mikmar president Dan Weyand. “It has all the same angles and pressure points as our very proven Training Bit, but it’s less than half the size, and offers many options, including the ability to show in many different classes. The initial demand is overwhelming, as we have never had a bit that we have already almost sold out the first production run in just weeks.”

Mikmar products are sold through a worldwide network of retailers.
