The Baucher muzzle attaches to the bridle with a small ring attached to the arm, extending away from the mouthpiece and the main ring to which the reins attach. The part connected to the arm lays flat against the horse's face, which helps with direction control and prevents the bit from being pulled through the horse's mouth. The Baucher gag was previously thought to cause pressure on the cervical vertebrae, as the arm was thought to act like a lever arm.
The chewer has a hexagonal shape and has large side plates to prevent bites from pressing into the lip junctions and preventing air swallowing. The side supports are unique on the market. They are the first in the world to be made of cnc aluminum together with the best quality Swedish steel.
