Tom Thumb Bomber Blue

Key Features

The Tom Thumb is similar to the Ring bits or Dutch Gags and introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece. The main difference however is that instead of the additional rings at the bottom it has an extended shank with a ring on the end, this shank is bent and set to run at 45°. The effect this has is to ease up the poll pressure and leverage on the mouthpiece.

The Bomber Blue is a unique bit which produces amazing results for the majority of horses. The mouthpiece is ported to give tongue relief. The nylon composite material is light in the mouth and encourages salivation. It is particularly well suited to horses that object to metal mouth pieces.

Cheekpiece

Have a look at the Taylor Tom Thumb cheekpiece, it has a wider diameter than the standard Tom Thumb. Supplied with a nylon back strap

Mouthpiece

The first choice for starting any young horse, it is easily accepted, it gives tongue relief, it’s light, non-metal and encourages salivation. If in doubt go with the Bombers suggested thickness for your width. 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.
