Ported Icelandic Bits in Sport Competition

November 7 2017 | Sport

After a two-year review of mouth inspection data, the Sport Committee removed the ban on most ported Icelandic bits in Sport competition because a clear correlation between ported leverage bits and increased mouth injuries cannot be found. The Icelandic bits join the other types of leverage bits (dressage kandare, pellham, etc) already allowed in sport competition. One specific Icelandic bit remains on the prohibited list. Refer to the Prohibited Equipment page of the FEIF web site.
