Cottage Craft sliding cheek weymouth is designed to be used in conjunction with a bradoon bit to make up a double bridle. It has a short cheek, giving a relatively mild curb action. The curb should be used with a lip strap to keep it in place and the weymouth bit should only be used with a cavesson noseband.
