Buster Roller T-Bar Big Ring Gag (POLO)
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 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.
