Stockman Control Plate

Key Features

The Stockman is a leverage bit, meaning that it multiplies the pressure applied by the rider.

The shorter the shank:

  • the more force is needed on the reins to provide a given amount of pressure on the mouth.
  • the bits only need to rotate a short distance before applying pressure on the horse’s mouth
  • the horse has less warning in a short shanked bit.

The curved shank is conducive to a nose-out head position when working.

The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Best suits a horse that accepts tongue pressure.

Cheekpiece

The standard size Stockman has 2 length shanks. The longer shank allows for more hand movement and slows the leveraging of the pressure points.

Mouthpiece

For the horse that shakes its head up when in a snaffle. Recommended over the elliptical as the control plate offers a larger surface area for the pressure to be distributed over.

Supplied with a nylon back strap.
