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 Eggbutt Loose Ring from Bombers Bits 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 blue sweet iron rollers on this Bombers Bit are constructed tightly, so there is no chance of pinching. The rollers promote relaxation in the lower jaw by encouraging the horse to mouth and play with the bit, thus reducing the likelihood of him grabbing hold of the bit or leaning on it.
The blue sweet iron oxidises easily, creating a warm and sweet taste in the horse's mouth, which encourages salivation, gentle mouthing and acceptance of the bit.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
