“The True Blue

Peter “Bomber Nel owner of Bombers Bits, designs and manufacturers the unique True Blue Bit. Their Bits are handmade originals and made from the finest materials. We also have our Bespoke Service for those wanting something special! Please contact us with your requirements.

Sweet Iron

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.

blankElliptical Lozenge Lock Up Mouthpiece

The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge; it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using 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.

The Lock Up snaffle removes the nut cracker action of the conventional
snaffle, meaning it will bear less pressure on the horse’s bars. The
Lock Up is therefore a softer option, than a conventional snaffle,
although it still applies tongue and bar pressure when the reins are
taken up.

blankFulmer Cheek

The Fulmer, or commonly known as the Full Cheek cheek piece, will have the same effect as the traditional Eggbutt in so much as, it will prevent pinching on the sides of the mouth, however the extended pins above and below the bit, firstly prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth and secondly have the effect of guiding the horses head which is great for schooling and training purposes.
