Buster Roller Kimblewick
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.
The increased pressure on the bar will lift the head and the roller will increase pressure on the tongue tucking the chin in.
Best suited for a horse with a low head carriage and which leans on the bit.
As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the riders’ hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring on an open Flip Kimblewick
If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45° angle in the mouth. Causing the mouthpiece to act in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw, this is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action.
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.
