Bomber Loose Ring Dressage Control Plate Bit Hire
The Dressage Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses 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. Where this bit differs to a traditional French Link is the shape and the setting of the plate. The Dressage Control Plate actually lies on the horse’s tongue not the edge of the plate.
The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse’s mouth.
The Dressage Control Plate is narrower (12mm) than the conventional Control Plate and applies more tongue pressure.
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.
