This cheek style can be used for training, pleasure riding, or competition. It has a 2- 1/2" purchase with a 5" shank. The shank is swept back like the 6" style, but to a lesser degree, offering more leverage. When properly adjusted it is still a mild cheek, but has plenty of control at increased speeds.
Stainless steel cheek with an inlaid copper chain mouthpiece. Good for reiterating bend and flex. Mild and pinchless sweet iron is comfortable, and applies even pressure to the corners of the mouth and tongue.
