BC45 T-Bar Big Ring Gag (POLO)
The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue.
Consequently, a horse who 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 horizontlaly with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
The T-Bar was developed by Bomber for Polo, it will have the same effect as the traditional Fulmer in that it will prevent pinching on the sides of the mouth however the shortened and extended pins above and below the bit prevent the bit firstly being pulled through the mouth and secondly has the effect of guiding the horses head into the direction the bit is facing which is great for schooling and training purposes. The T-Bar has a Loose Ring fitting which allows for immediate release whilst the shortened pin extensions prevent it from being hooked up.
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:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
