BBHTFC Bombers Full Cheek Happy Tongue
A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or its tongue trying to escape the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue. With this in mind the Happy Tongue was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure, allowing the horse to relax.
The Fulmer cheekpiece, will have the same effect as the traditional Eggbutt in so much as, it will prevent pinching on the sides of the mouth, however the extended pins above and below the bit, firstly prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth and secondly have the effect of guiding the horses head which is great for schooling and training purposes.
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.

i couldn't do a thing with my boy untill I bought one of these bits. He is now happy and relaxed. Like riding a different horse thanks.
My young horse has decided to hang his tongue out on the left side... He was o my broken last sept ... And is going really well wev got big hope for this lovely boy.... Just wanted to say how impressed I was today when I rang the bit bank.. So very helpful and great advice.... Iv been very stressed about this issue.... I won a baby dressage class at the weekend and the judge pulled me aside to comment on how fab he was and had good vibes on his future , just his tongue issue will keep us from affiliating.... So watch this space for the up date on progress with our new bit to try ... Full cheek happy tongue
My pony Indy loves his Bomber Happy Tongue bit! For 7 months my usually well behaved Connemara gelding had started head tossing, chomping, trying to escape the bit, playing up in traffic, spooking, and in the end no joy to ride. The dentist, vet, and saddler found nothing amiss. Yet I felt there must be a reason for his behaviour and after a near miss with two motorcycles I asked my husband to watch me ride. He immediately saw that Indy's tongue was hanging out all the time and also commented on his 'huge tongue'! It turns out that Connemaras have large tongues and a low palate, leaving less room for a jointed bit such as a snaffle which I had always used. I contacted the Advice line at BitBank and after a very helpful conversation I ordered a trial of the Happy Tongue bit. As soon as I tried it he was a different pony, it seemed like a miracle to me! We are now back on track and enjoying ourselves. All the behavioural issues have disappeared. I would highly recommend both the Advice line and the happy Tongue bit.
I have a 5 year old Welsh D with a fleshy tongue. I called The Horse bit bank for advice as he was crossing his jaw, sticking his Tongue out & dropping behind the bit to avoid contact all whilst in a mild loose ring jointed snaffle with a flash noseband. The Horse Bit Bank suggested a loose ring happy tongue bomber bit which we were able to have on a 30 day trial. It is not dressage legal but it is a step on the way for us and I now have a happy horse with a steady searching contact & the tongue only comes out occasionally in times of stress. We are ready to look at dressage legal bits now & I will be calling The Horse bit bank for their advice.
I have tried all sorts of bits on my very sensitive mare, ive been using a dynamic eggbutt, i thought that was good until i tried the happy tongue full cheeks its made such a difference, my mare now walks like a horse and not a pony, thankyou very much The Horse Bit Bank
