Elliptical 2.5 Ring Eggbutt
Bombers Bit Elliptical 2.5 Ring Eggbutt
The Elliptical 2.5 Ring Eggbutt by Bombers Bits prevents pinching of the lips and give 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.
A Ring cheekpiece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece. As a result, the 2½ Ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge, it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using 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.
