Happy Tongue Cherry Roller Loose Ring Snaffle
The Happy Tongue Cherry Roller Loose Ring Snaffle by Bombers Bit allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse’s mouth.
The Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece and in addition it is curved and ported to give tongue relief. 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. Changing the cheekpieces would then allow the rider to adjust the level of control.
Furthermore, the Cherry Rollers roll in the horses mouth giving him something to play with and reducing the likelihood of the bit being held in the horse’s teeth. They are constructed tightly and as a result, there is no chance of pinching. When pulling on the reins, the rollers allow the bit to move along the bars of the horse’s jaws as opposed to rubbing.
Hence, Very useful for horses that:
- Lose sensitivity over time
- Lose concentration
- Cross their jaws
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.
