The Bombers Control Plate (BC45 Full Cheek) 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. The Fulmer, or commonly known as the Full Cheek cheek piece, will have the same effect as the traditional Eggbutt in so much as, it will prevent pinching on the sides of the mouth, however the extended pins above and below the bit, firstly prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth and secondly have the effect of guiding the horses head which is great for schooling and training purposes. 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.
