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 Petros Single-Jointed 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 Petros mouthpiece rotates to encourage gentle mouthing and discourage 'fixing' against the contact. The loose rings also allow for immediate relief from tongue and bar pressure when rein aids are relaxed, thus rewarding the horse quickly for a correct response.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece from Bombers Bits oxidises easily, creating a warm, sweet taste that promotes salivation and acceptance of the bit.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
