Loose Ring Barrel 20 Bit Hire

A conventional Snaffle joint has a nut cracker action, which means it will bear pressure on the horse’s bars and the tongue.  The Barrel joint limits the nut cracker action and spreads the usual pressure over a larger area.  When the rein is used this mouthpiece wraps across the tongue creating tongue pressure and taking pressure off the bars due to the lock up action.

The Loose ring allows for immediate release and relief from the tongue and bar pressure which resets the bit into the horses mouth gently.

This bit is BD Legal.

Fitting Details

Fitting the Bomber Bit

The bit should be fitted in your horse’s mouth with the size (as you look at the horse) the correct way up for you to read and on your right-hand side.

We recommend that you have the bit so the horse just has ½ to one lip wrinkle at the corner of the mouth. This might have to be altered if the horse has large canines.

When fitting a bit with a fixed cheek e.g an eggbutt we recommend that the lip should sit flush with the butt to ensure a snug but not tight fit. When fitting a loose ring (pictured below) we like to see a bit of clearance either side of approx. 3-4mm to make sure the lips will not get pinched.

If you have any queries please email Kirstie with photos so we can recommend how to change it.
