The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure which then resets the bit in the horses’ mouth.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge, and with a smaller surface area, it is stronger than the Control Plate. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control for the rider.The Elliptical Roller is made of brass or sweet iron, which is designed to heighten the horses awareness of the bit. When the rein is used this mouthpiece wraps across the tongue creating tongue pressure and reducing bar pressure.
Bomber bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
