Bombers Happy Tongue Eggbutt
The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and give a
slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents
the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also
introduces some poll pressure.
The 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 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
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.
