The Bombers Elliptical Snaffle is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using it’s 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.
The loose ring allows for immediate relief and release from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse’s mouth.
A Bomber Bit is entirely hand crafted, all components are welded, formed and ground by hand.
The bits are made from sweet iron, which gives the striking deep blue tint. Sweet Iron will oxidise when it comes into contact with moisture, this oxidation process encourages salivation which improves acceptance of the bit. This process will also turn the blue colour of the Bomber Bit into a brownish grey colour.
Available in 14mm diameter.
