The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse’s mouth.
The McHardy Link is Bomber’s latest design. The link in the middle replaces the roller in the McHardy, this allows the mouthpiece to be made in smaller sizes than the McHardy and helps to reduce tongue pressure. The McHardy Link is shaped to follow the contours of the horse’s mouth. Designed for horses that can get a little low in the contact.
Bomber’s preferred cheekpiece. The cheekpiece is available in 3 sizes; large, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony. Bomber highly recommends using a bit strap on a loose ring, as it stabilizes and minimizes the mouthpiece sliding through the mouth. Consider bit rubbers as a precaution.
A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or trying to put its tongue over the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue. With this in mind the McHardy Link was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure. The centre link further reduces tongue pressure as well as allowing smaller widths to be possible.
