The Bombers Titanium McHardy Eggbutt Snaffle combines lightweight titanium with a ported, jointed mouthpiece with a central roller.
The McHardy mouthpiece was created for horses that shake their head when bit pressure is applied ot try to put their tongue over the bit - both classic signs that the horse has a sensitive tongue. The medium port of the McHardy creates space for the tongue, relieving pressure. The roller in the middle increases bar pressure, and as a result extends the head and brings the nose in, giving more control.
The Eggbutt cheek prevents pinching of the lips and gives a solid feel against the side of the horse's face. It also prevents the bit from being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower than that of a loose ring.
The titanium mouthpiece adds a number of positives to the proven Bombers horse bitting philosophy. It is anti-bacterial and bio-compatible, whilst boasting superior durability and remaining extremely lightweight in the horse's mouth. It increases salivation, is warm to the touch and encourages acceptance of the bit. Low maintenance and easy to clean, it is also hypoallergenic for the benefit of sensitive horses.
This bit comes in different diameters according to the mouth size. The 12.5cm and 13cm mouthpieces have a 14mm diameter, while the 13.5-15cm sizes have a 16mm diameter.
The Bombers Titanium McHardy Eggbutt Snaffle is available in sizes 12.5cm (just under 5in), 13.5cm (5 1/4in), 14.5cm (5 3/4in) or 15cm (just under 6in).
