Bombers Bits Eggbutt Happy Tongue
BEG00HT0011509Regular price $121.00
The Happy Tongue is by far the most successful Bombers Bits Design.
It is a solid mouthpiece uniquely ported to give maximum tongue relief and curved to be softer on the bars and slow in applying tongue pressure.
The Happy Tongue would be a good place to start if your horse is:
- Shaking its head
- Sticking its tongue out
- Sucking its tongue back and as a result, making an intermittent coughing noise
- Trying to put its tongue over the bit
- Going behind the bit to avoid the contact
- Snatching the reins forward and down
The rider will know immediately if this is the correct bit, as a horse with a sensitive tongue will finally begin to work into and accept the contact.
The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit from being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also introduces some poll pressure. The eggbutt provides much-needed stability to the inconsistent horse.
NOTE: This style should sit snug on the horse, so the port does not move sideways. over the tongue and bars of the horse's mouth.
