Premier Equine Tom Thumb Bit with Copper 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.
  • Copper is a warm metal which encourages salivation and mouthing on the bit.
  • A useful bit for horses that tend to lean against the riders hands.

Stainless Steel Horse Bits

  • Stainless steel is the most commonly used material for horse bits as it is durable, easy to clean and does not rust.
  • Some of our stainless steel bits feature copper mouthpieces which help to create a warming sensation and encourage the horse to salivate and accept the bit.
  • Stainless steel bits are suitable for a wide range of horses and are available in many designs so that you can choose the right bit for your horse and discipline.
