Bombers BC45 Petros Loose Ring Eggbutt
The Bombers Control Plate (BC45 Petros Loose Ring Eggbutt) is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse that uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control. This differs from a Dr Bristol which sits horizontally with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
The Eggbutt Loose Ring prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The Eggbutt Loose Ring provides the quick release of a Loose Ring.
