Bomber Blue 2.5 Ring
Bombers Bit Bomber Blue 2.5 Ring
The Bomber Blue 2.5 Ring is a unique bit, which produces amazing results for the majority of horses. The lightweight rubber nylon compound mouthpiece is ported for tongue relief. This reduces tongue pressure, while applying pressure to the bars of the mouth. Hence this bit may be suitable for horses with large tongues, who find straight bar bits uncomfortable.
In addition, it can be made with your choice of cheek piece.
The top ring is attached to the cheekpieces to apply poll pressure, resulting in the horse’s head lowering, while the half-ring provides leverage, causing a head raising action. When these actions are combined, it results in a gag action. The 2.5 ring, sometimes known as a Universal, is the mildest version of a ring gag. As a result, the half-ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece.
The reins can be attached to this bit in a number of ways to create the desired action: when attached to the big main ring it results in a hanging cheek action with poll pressure, and if attached to the bottom ring it creates a mild gag action.
A Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece, the 2 ½ ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
