Bombers 21/2 Ring Eggbutt Happy Tongue

The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and give a  slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents  the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also  introduces some poll pressure.

A Ring cheekpiece 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 Happy Tongue is a solid  mouth piece. It is curved and ported to give tongue relief. The Happy  Tongue would be a good place to start if your horse is:

  • Shaking its head
  • Sticking its tongue out
  • Sucking its tongue back and as a result making an intermittent coughing noise
  • Trying to put its tongue over the bit
  • Going behind the bit to avoid the contact
  • Snatching the reins forward and down

The  rider will know immediately if this is the correct bit, as a horse with  a sensitive tongue will finally begin to work into, and accept the  contact. Changing the cheekpieces would then allow the rider to adjust  the level of control.


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.

Comes with a nylon back strap.
