Bomber Colin Miles Kimblewick / Butterfly Flip
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.
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.
Colin Miles Mouthpiece
The Colin Miles is a great schooling bit with a 55mm centre piece creating greater tongue pressure. The rings give the horse something to play with and help keep the horses attention on the bit.
Kimblewick / Butterfly Flip Cheek
As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the riders hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring.
If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45 angle in the mouth. Causing the mouthpiece to act in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw, this is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action.
