Description

Premier Equine Brass Alloy Tom Thumb Bit with Lozenge

  • The Tom Thumb bit is a cross between an American gag and an elevator bit.
  • It offers more precision and control and is very popular for show jumping and cross country.
  • It has a lifting effect in front which can assist the rider in helping to sit the horse back on its hocks, enabling tighter turns and more efficient jumping.
  • The uplifting action combined with poll pressure can also discourage horses from leaning on the bit.
  • Can be used with one rein on either the snaffle ring or the lower ring or alternatively, for increased precision, with two reins.
  • The lozenge in the centre of this bit contours the shape of the tongue and helps to reduce the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit which helps form a soft contact, allowing clear aids to be given down the reins.
  • Brass alloy is formed when copper is alloyed with a harder metal, this produces a warm and durable material which is perfect for horse bits as it can aid salivation and be more palatable to the horse.
  • A useful bit for horses that tend to lean against the riders hands.
  • Exerts poll pressure.
  • Ideally used by experienced riders.
  • This bit is NOT BD Legal.
  • Bit strength: Moderate.

Brass Horse Bits

  • Brass alloy bits are warm, durable and they encourage the horse to salivate as well as easily accept the bit.
  • Ideal for a range of horses, especially those that need encouragement to mouth and accept the bit.
