BBHTLRE Bombers Loose ring Eggbutt 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 Eggbutt Loose Ring prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The Eggbutt Loose Ring provides the quick release of a Loose Ring .

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.

Customer Reviews

Average customer rating:

I had spent months of trying different bits on my young cob with no success, terrible head shaking and getting his tongue over the bits meant I had no breaks and was being pulled out of the saddle constantly. We tried a french link snaffle, happy mouth, neue schule verbindend and tranz angles lozenge with no joy. I was so happy that the bit bank recommended the Bombers Happy Tongue it has transformed my riding and I now have a happy comfortable horse. Thank you

I bought this for my welsh sec d. He has a very large tongue and fleshy lips. He works very nicely in this bit and we now have a more consistent outline in canter. I will definitely be buying the pelham version for showing.

My horse is a chunky chap (Foundation Quarter horse) converting from western to English. He has a short neck which he used to block contact. He has a fat tongue and looks like a Welsh Cob.
He was able to take the contact forward and down and also move laterally which is quite a miracle.
He and I love this bit, the loose rings are great and the wings protect the corners of his mouth.
