The BC45 Petros Loose Ring by Bombers Bits is set at 45° so it follows the contour of the horses tongue.
Consequently, a horse who 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. As a result, this differs from a Dr Bristol which sits horizontally with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
The Petros mouthpieces rotate preventing the horse taking hold of the bit and can be combined with any 3-piece bit. Often good for a horse that leans or tries to take hold of the bit.
The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure which will reset the bit in the horses’ mouth.
Furthermore, the loose rings keep the bit mobile in the horse’s mouth. It allows an immediate release of pressure when rein aids cease, and encourages the horse to gently mouth the bit.
Additionally, all our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
