Bombers Twisted Wire Buster Roller Full Cheek
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.
Our Snaffle mouthpiece is popular due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars. With the offset centre link it will reduce nutcracker action and pressure points on the tongue.
Twisted wire creates more pressure points on the bars making it a stronger bit.
Buster Roller Mouthpiece
The Buster Roller is a great bit for schooling, the link in the middle is shortened to 40mm increasing bar and tongue pressure making the bit sharper than conventional link bits. Best suited for a horse with a low head carriage and which leans on the bit. The increased pressure on the bar will lift the head and the roller will increase pressure on the tongue bringing the chin in.
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.
