Elliptical 2.5 Ring
Bombers Bit Elliptical 2.5 Ring
The Elliptical 2.5 Ring by Bombers Bits introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece. The 2½ Ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge, it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using 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 Bomber Bit prevents pinching of the lips and give a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. As a result it prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth.
Hence, the release is slower and also introduces some poll pressure.
Additionally, 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.
