The innovative Moulded Mullen 2.5 Ring Bit from Bombers is made from flexible synthetic material, and is designed to offer soft, even pressure.
The moulded mouthpiece has been uniquely shaped and flattened. It is angled at 45 degrees to offer exceptionally soft and evenly distributed pressure over and around the horse's tongue, and minimal bar pressure.
It is especially useful for horses that dislike metal bits, and those with sensitive mouths or previous bar damage. It has a rubbery texture that can sustain a limited amount of chewing.
The internal flexible stainless steel cable core has been injection moulded with a bespoke non-toxic, UV resistant, FDA approved flexible synthetic material.
It was developed to ensure three key attributes: texture, durability and comfort.
The top ring of the 2.5 ring is attached to the cheekpieces to apply poll pressure, resulting in the horse's head lowering, while the half-ring gives leverage, causing a head raising action. When these actions are combined, it results in a gag action. The 2.5 ring, sometimes known as a Universal, is the mildest version of a ring gag as the half-ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece.
As with all Bombers steel components, the cable core and cheek piece will be covered by their lifetime guarantee.
The Bombers Lifetime Guarantee does not extend to materials that can be chewed, such as the mouthpiece.
The Bombers Moulded Mullen 2.5 Ring Gag is available in sizes 12.5cm (just under 5in), 13.5cm (5 1/4in) or 14.5cm (5 3/4in).
