The Bomber Blue is a unique bit which produces amazing results for the majority of horses.
, The mouthpiece is ported to give tongue relief, the rubber nylon composite used allows the bit to remain light and it encourages salivation. It is particularly well suited to horses that object to metal mouth pieces. The bit does have a metal core making it a strong and robust bit. Please be aware that if your horse chews the bit they will mark the material that this bit is made of. This bit does come with bit guards but they’re very easy to remove if you choose not to use them., The Eggbutt cheek piece 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. This bit is BD Legal without the bit guards., The Eggbutt Bomber Blue Bit is available to hire HERE
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.
