Bombers Single Jointed Curb Gag
The True Blue
Peter Bomber Nel owner of Bombers Bits, designs and manufacturers the unique True Blue Bit. Their Bits are handmade originals and made from the finest materials. We also have our Bespoke Service for those wanting something special! Please contact us with your requirements.
All our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
Our Snaffle mouthpiece is popular due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars. With the offset centre link it will reduce nutcracker action and pressure points on the tongue.
The Curb Gag is a new addition to Bombers, this cheek piece uses the concept of a Rope gag and instead of using that pressure to apply poll it is used to apply curb pressure, from the second/bottom rein, although poll is not removed as there is a similar action to the Portuguese/Ring or Drop/Hanging cheek on the bit/top rein. A ring can be added to the bottom to create more poll pressure.
NB: A Curb Gag is designed to be used with two reins. In fact British Eventing will not allow any horse to take part in the X Country phase of an event, with one of these bits, without using two reins. Use of only one rein can risk weakening/failure of the gag rope - no responsibility can be accepted if these bits are not used correctly.
Please note- If Bombers items are not in stock here in the UK then delivery can take up to 3-6 weeks as all items are hand made to order in South Africa. Please contact us to check stock if you need an item urgently.
