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 Taylor Tom Thumb cheek piece is larger than our standard Tom Thumb.
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 material used allows the bit to remain light and it encourages salivation. It is particularly well suited to horses that object to metal mouth pieces.
Disclaimer: Sweet Iron will oxidize when it comes into contact with mositure, this oxidation process encourages salivation which improves acceptance of the bit. This process changes the blue colour of the Bomber bit to a brownish grey. If not used for a while, any build-up may be removed with a scourer and wiped with a damp cloth.
