Description

The Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece and it is curved and shaped to give tongue relief

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.
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.

Please refer to our fitting guide to make sure this bit is correctly fitted in your horse’s mouth.

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.
