Loose Ring Cheek
means that the mouthpiece has a delayed action before it is activated. The rider picks up the rein pressure the rein rolls on the ring a little then the ring rolls on the mouthpiece a little and then the signal gets to the Horse some Horses and or riders hands will respond well to this. The plus points for the Horse are if a particular Horse is a little tentative about applied rein pressure or it’s a Horse that does not like its tongue to feel trapped behind the mouthpiece then the delayed action of the loose ring is a benefit.
