Loose Ring Flexible Mullen Snaffle
, The Bombers Flexible Mullen mouthpiece is made from an internal stainless steel chain covered with a non-toxic, UV resistant PVC tube. This bit offers exceptionally soft and evenly distributed pressure over the tongue and bars which is ideal for very sensitive mouthed horses., This mouthpiece is often suitable for horses that object to metal bits., The Loose ring allows for immediate release and relief from the tongue and bar pressure which resets the bit into the horse’s mouth gently., Please note, this bit can be chewed., This bit is BD Legal.
Fitting the Bomber BitThe 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.
