Cable Waterford Fulmer Snaffle
The Bombers Cable Waterford Fulmer Snaffle Bits features a covered cable with three Waterford ball lozenges.
The smoother shape of this mouthpiece reduces any pressure points caused by conventional links. The cable ensures an instant springback, releasing pressure immediately when the rein contact is softened, thus making it suitable for sensitive tongues.
The Waterford mouthpiece is made up of a series of flexible ball links, which spread the pressure around the horse's mouth, encouraging mouthing and salivating while deterring the horse from leaning on the bit.
As there is nothing rigid for the horse to latch on to, the Waterford can be very useful for giving the rider extra control on horses that tend to lean on the bit, set their jaw or take hold of the bit. It is suitable for most types of mouth conformation, including horses with large tongues.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece from Bombers Bits oxidises easily, creating a warm, sweet taste in the horse's mouth. This encourages salivation and acceptance of the bit.
The Fulmer loose rings make the bit less fixed in the mouth which encourages mouthing and acceptance of the bit, while retaining the turning advantages of the full cheek. It can be useful for horses that are unsure of the bit, because the bit doesn't move around so much in the mouth, therefore encouraging the horse to stretch into the contact. The arms also help to prevent pinching at the sides of the mouth.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
