Square Twisted BC45 Gag (Polo
The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse that uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control. This differs from a Dr Bristol which sits horizontally with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
Square twisted wire creates more pressure points on the bars making it a stronger bit. The square twist is more severe than the round twist.
The Big Ring Gag is stronger than the usual Loose Ring and Eggbutt as the ropes going through the rings create leverage which will exert more pressure through the mouthpiece whilst at the same time introducing more poll pressure. These are generally used for Polo.
The big ring creates more leverage making it stronger than the small ring version.
All our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
helps bit acceptance
is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
