Bombers Pony Control Plate Kimblewick
"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.
Control Plate Mouthpiece
The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45 to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
This differs from a Dr Bristol which sits horizontlaly with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
Kimblewick / Butterfly Flip Cheek
As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the riders hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring.
If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45 angle in the mouth. Causing the mouthpiece to act in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw, this is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action.
Please note: This is not a Bombers Uk Stock item so if there are none available in the Uk then an order will have to be made with Bombers South Africa which can take up to 3/4 Weeks.
