Bombers Hackamore Happy Tongue Hybrid Show Jumping Bit

The Bomber Hybrid is a combination of a mechanical hackamore and American Gag, giving it the combined effects of the hackamore and the bit. Bomber recommends that this sophisticated combination bit is suitable for experienced riders to use on strong, sensitive mouthed horses. It distributes pressure uniformly on the nose, mouth, and the poll, while the adjustable settings offered for rein attachments will vary pressure on the nose, tongue, and curb. The amount of movement in the mouthpiece can be altered by moving the attached stopper above the mouthpiece. As the stopper is set further down, the purchase grows, increasing mouthpiece leverage and poll pressure,as well as back trap and nose band pressure. The nose piece is padded for the horse's comfort and a nylon curb strap is included. Care must be taken, as with any mechanical hackamore, that the noseband sits above the nasal bone.

The Happy Tongue is a solid mouthpiece uniquely ported to give maximum tongue relief. The standard Happy Tongue is curved to be softer on the bars and slow in applying tongue pressure. This mouthpiece is made from blue sweet iron, meaning it is warm and sweet, helps bit acceptance, oxidizes easily, and encourages salivation. Please note, the blue color will fade with use, but the sweet taste will remain.

This is a great bit to start with if your horse is shaking its horse, sticking its tongue out, sucking its tongue back resulting in a coughing noise, trying to put its tongue over the bit, going behind the bit to avoid contact, or snatching the reins forward and down. The rider will know immediately if this bit will work as the horse will finally begin to work into the bit and accept the contact. Changing the cheekpieces would then allow the rider to adjust the level of control.
