The innovative Bombers DC Happy Tongue Swivel bit is designed to release as many pressure points as possible on the horse's head and mouth, creating safe and comfortable communication between horse and rider.
The best-selling Bombers Happy Tongue mouthpiece has a medium port to create space for the horse's tongue, relieving tongue pressure and promoting relaxation.
The reins are attached to the large dee ring, which swings open independently of the cheekpiece. The loose ring that attaches to the bridle can also rotate, thus relieving rein engagement from the poll and cheek area.
In addition, the mouthpiece is fixed to the sides with a solid surface area to encourage flexion and enhance steering aids.
This bit is often suitable for horses with sensitive or large tongues. Signs of sensitivity include the horse shaking his head when bit pressure is applied, putting the tongue out of the side of the mouth or putting the tongue over the bit.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece promotes salivation and acceptance of the bit. The material oxidises easily, warming up quickly in the horse's mouth and producing a sweet taste.
Please note that this happy tongue mouthpiece is straighter than the standard Bombers Happy Tongue.
This style of the Bombers DC bit is no longer legal for British Dressage or FEI dressage or eventing dressage.
This Bombers bit is available in sizes 12.5-15cm.
