Bombers Waterford Fulmer Gag
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.
The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bumps or bubbles, which spreads the pressure over many points making it a light mouthpiece. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it. The Waterford bit is a good choice for a horse that leans; it also promotes mouthing and salivation. The Waterford is usually worn 0.25 – 0.5″ longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the lips and maximise the effect.
Fulmer Gag Cheek
The Fulmer 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.
The Gag version is stronger and will create more leverage on the mouthpiece whilst at the same time introducing more poll pressure.
