The Wilkie utilizes pressure on the poll and raises the bit in the horse’s mouth to achieve additional control without resorting to a stronger mouthpiece.
This is similar to the action of a ring bit but to a milder degree which is why it has found favor for use on ponies.
The cylindrical sides flex onto the bottom bars and jaw, with the flattened centre section bending over the tongue. The centre tongue pad is an elongated circle, flattened and angled at 45 degrees to sit flush against the tongue and palate. The articulated ribs on either side of the tongue pad allow the cylindrical sides some independence, and the tongue pad some stability. The internal flexible stainless-steel cable core has been injection moulded with a bespoke non-toxic, UV resistant, FDA approved flexible synthetic material. The Bombers moulded material has been uniquely developed, to ensure 3 key attributes; texture, durability and comfort.
The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony. Bomber highly recommends using a bit strap on a loose ring, as it stabilizes and minimizes the mouthpiece sliding through the mouth. Consider bit rubbers as a precaution.
The preferred contact mouthpiece has been specifically designed for cases where Bombers tongue relief methods have not worked and some form of tongue pressure must be considered. As with all our steel components, the cable core and cheek piece will be covered by our lifetime guarantee. The Bombers Lifetime Guarantee does not extend to materials that can be chewed.
