Giuseppe Poponcini is a well-known craftsman in a variety of business disciplines related to mechanics. He has always enjoyed horseback riding and wanted to give his kid a horse as a gift one day. He quickly realized, as a keen observer, that that horse couldn't stand any kind of mouthpiece. As a result, he decided to expand his research into mouthpieces in order to be able to make a mouthpiece fit for his beloved horse with his own hands and that is when the Poponcini bits product range was born.
Poponcini bits are characterized by having an extremely soft mouthpiece and guarantee optimal comfort for the sensitive horse's mouth. The shape of the mouthpiece allows a horse to close its mouth properly, which means that it will relax more quickly and be much calmer with its head and tongue. A Poponcini bit is formed in Italy by a metal wire, covered with plastic, and a brass bush at the ends. A non-toxic, anti-allergic silicone layer is poured over this. Poponcini bits made of this soft material are also called the Harmony line. Bits made of this type of soft material have a shorter life than bits from metal.
