Medium Ring Gag Happy Tongue

Key Features

A gag works by lifting the bit in the mouth in order to encourage the head to be raised. Often used on strong horses that like to lower their heads in order to escape the action of the bit in the mouth and get very strong. When pressure is applied to the rein, the bit is lifted in the mouth and poll pressure is applied. The bit also rotates slightly in the mouth putting more pressure on the tongue and bars. To be correctly used, it must be used with two reins one on the gag and one on the bit, only bringing the gag rein into play when needed, although most people ride on the gag rein only.

The Happy Tongue is a solid mouthpiece uniquely ported to give maximum tongue relief. The standard Happy Tongue is curved to be softer on the bars and slow in applying tongue pressure.

Cheekpiece

The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony. Supplied with gag ropes.

Mouthpiece

This is by far our most successful design  –  we recommend for all young horses and those that show tongue sensitive signs. The 4 available ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.The Happy Tongue is also available as a straight mouthpiece which is slightly stronger.

Supplied with show jumping gag ropes.
