BC45 2.5 Ring Eggbutt
Bombers Bit BC45 2.5 Ring Eggbutt
The BC45 2.5 Ring Eggbutt by Bombers Bits – Control Plate 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.
A Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece, the 2 ½ ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also introduces some poll pressure.
