BOMBER BLUE PELHAM SWIVEL HORSE BIT
BOMBER BLUE 2.5 RING HORSE BIT
The Bomber Blue 2.5 Ring horse bit has a ported mouthpiece to provide relief to the horse's tongue. The mouthpiece is made of a hollow steel core covered with Bomber's signature blue nylon composite, which produces a light bit that encourages salivation and is well accepted by horses that do not like metal mouth pieces. Most horses respond well to this bit.
This bit applies poll pressure and creates leverage on the mouthpiece. The 2½ Ring version is the softest version of elevator bit because the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
This bit is for sensitive yet strong horses. It offers the opportunity for more control when needed. This bit is recommended for control through downward transitions, quick direction changes and turning. It is considered to be gentle yet strong, when necessary.
Use: The smallest of the three rings will be connected to your cheek pieces. This bit can be used in four different rein configurations:
One rein can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the large bit ring.
One rein can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the lower bit ring.
Two reins can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the large bit ring, and a more narrow flat leather curb rein connected to the lower ring.
Leather or nylon converters can also be used with this bit. Converters connect to the large bit ring and the lower ring. A main rein can then be connected to the converters allowing the rider to use one rein instead of two.
Rubber bit guards are recommended for use with this bit. Bit guards are made of an elastic rubber so they can be pulled over the bit ring. Each guard acts as a protective barrier on either side of the horse's mouth between the sensitive mouth skin and the metal bit ring.
This bit fits larger because it is a straight bar mouth pice. We recommend going down a size or two. 5.25"/135MM will fit most horses. ex: if you usually buy mouth size 5.5"/140MM or 5.75"/145MM, please buy 5.25"/135MM.
