Bombers Hanging Cheek Happy Tongue 14mm
The Drop Cheek has an Eggbutt like ring at the mouthpiece for the
rein, with an upper cheek that has a ring at its end, to which the
cheekpiece of the bridle is attached.
The mouthpiece does not
slide on its ring resulting in only slight poll pressure. The
cheekpieces lies flat against the horse’s face, and the mouthpiece is
quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars.
Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece. It is curved and ported to give
tongue relief. The Happy Tongue would be a good place to start if your
- 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
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.
