If your horse likes the mobility offered by loose ring bits, but you worry they may pinch the sides of his mouth then look no further. The Bombers Eggbutt Loose Ring Snaffle offers the best of both worlds.
It prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face to assist with turning aids. The eggbutt 'cheeks' also prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth, while retaining the advantages of a loose ring.
The loose rings keep the bit mobile in the horse's mouth, encouraging gentle mouthing and discouraging 'fixing' against the contact. They also allow for immediate relief from tongue and bar pressure when rein aids are relaxed, thus rewarding the horse quickly for a correct response.
The Ultra Comfy Lock Up has been designed to suit very sensitive mouthed horses. The shape is such that it follows the contour of the horse's tongue. The centre joint has been double locked to ensure that the angle over the tongue remains correct, even when the reins are taken up, but it retains the individual lateral aids. The Ultra comfy has a generous curve, to follow the shape of the horse's mouth. We have found that the need for softer and softer bits has been growing, as breeding has been producing finer and more sensitive horses.
Bombers bits are made from blue sweet iron which oxidises easily to encourages salivation helps bit acceptance is warm and sweet.
Please note that due to the oxidisation the blue will fade with use.
