Happy Tongue Loose Ring Bombers Bit Happy Tongue Loose Ring is a great bit for a horse shaking its head. Bombers created this bit for horses who shake their head when bit pressure is applied.
The Happy Tongue would be a good place to start if your horse is:
- Shaking its head
- Sticking its tongue out
- Sucking its tongue back and as a result making an intermittent coughing noise
- Trying to put its tongue over the bit
- Going behind the bit to avoid the contact
- Snatching the reins forward and down
With this in mind the Happy Tongue was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure, allowing the horse to relax.
Hence, Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece. It is curved and ported to give tongue relief.
The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure which will reset the bit in the horses’ mouth.
The rider will know immediately if this is the correct bit, as a horse with a sensitive tongue will finally begin to work into, and accept the contact. Changing the cheek pieces would then allow the rider to adjust the level of control.
All our 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.
Please note that size 105-120mm are pony bits and therefore have smaller rings 45mm.
Bomber Loose Ring Happy Tongue Bit:B14/09 Product Code: BBHTLR
Bomber Bits have used blue sweet iron which easily oxidises when in the horses mouth encouraging the horse to salivate more and accept the bit.
This in turn keeps them softer in the mouth creating a happier all round ride and partenership with the rider.
Pressure = Resistance Resistance = Lack of control
A horse is an animal of flight – it will never yield to pressure or pain, it will either move away from it or run away.
Therefore pressure = resistance = lack of control.
To obtain control we need to remove the resistance.
To remove the resistance, one must remove the pressure or distribute the pressure over a larger surface area.
