Elliptical T Bar 3 Ring (POLO)
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.
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.
A Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece. The 3 Ring is our most popular 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.
