    Bombers elliptical lozenge full cheek snaffle

    Fulmer Elliptical

    This bit features blue sweet iron to encourage salivation and to help the horse accept the bit. The elliptical lozenge mouthpiece has a 45mm lozenge and when used on a horse that uses his tongue to push against the bit, it will help to bring him back to a better point of control. Additionally, the Fulmer cheek piece will prevent pinching on the sides of his mouth and stop the bit from being pulled through the mouth, helping to guide the horse’s head.

    RRP: £76

    Novocontact double-jointed bit


    This is the latest bit from Sprenger and features a unique oval shape design, which widens the contact area of the mouthpiece on the horse’s tongue, without putting pressure on the palate. The bit is good to use on horses that occasionally tend to pull against the hand, but are too sensitive to be ridden with stronger bits.

    Bombers Bit Loose Ring Elliptical Comfy Bit

    The Bombers Elliptical Bradoon is a double-jointed bit that features a lozenge in the middle, a curved mouthpiece and loose rings. The rings allow for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure and therefore the bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse’s mouth. The comfy mouthpiece also has an extra curvature, which softens the action and therefore offers more tongue relief. This bit is dressage legal and bit hire is also available on this style.

    Dynamic RS

    This bit is suitable for horses that perhaps need something a little stronger. Like other Sprenger bits, this bit is made from a special material called Sensogan, which is less likely to tarnish and helps to create a smooth and regulated process of oxidation, which enhances salivation over an extended period of time.

    RRP: £133.88
