All the protection of a traditional bit guard but with a soft gel moulding round the mouth piece offering protection for the corners of the mouth.

The Happy Tongue 2.5 Ring by Bombers Bit is made for when a horse is shaking its head when bit pressure is applied. If its tongue is trying to escape the bit, these are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue.
With this in mind the Happy Tongue was created. It has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure, allowing the horse to relax.
Hence, Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece. It is curved and ported to give tongue relief.
Furthermore, a Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece, the 2 ½ ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
Please note the blue will fade with use.

Bomber Bits Waterford Wilkie utilises pressure on the poll and raising the bit in the horse’s mouth to achieve additional control. It does this without resorting to a stronger mouthpiece.
The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bumps or bubbles. This spreads the pressure over many points making it a light mouthpiece. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it.
The Waterford bit is a good choice for a horse that leans, it also promotes mouthing and salivation. The Waterford is usually worn ¼” – ½” longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the lips and maximise the effect
Very popular in the show ring – Need more control than an ordinary snaffle?

Also helps with turning and downwards transitions. Popular in the show ring. All of the pony cheeks are scaled down in proportion with the neat pony mouthpieces.
