BBELEGLR Bombers Elliptical Eggbutt loose ring



The Eggbutt Loose Ring prevents pinching of the lips and gives a more solid feel against the side of the face. It prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The Eggbutt Loose Ring allows quick release.

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.

The classic signs of a horse with a sensitive tongue are all to do with avoiding pressure:

  • vshaking its head from side to side
  • putting its tongue out
  • putting its tongue over the bit
  • sucking its tongue back

"A horse is an animal of flight. It will never yield to pressure or pain it will either move away from it or run away." Peter "Bomber Nel.

The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure which will reset the bit in the horses mouth.

All our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:

  • oxidises easily
  • encourages salivation
  • helps bit acceptance
  • is warm and sweet

Please note the blue will fade with use.
