Control Plate Polito
The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses 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 Polito mouthpieces are flattened. This allows a larger surface area across the bars and tongue when the bit is not in use, however, when contact is taken up, the mouthpiece rotates onto the narrower surface area, thus increasing the pressure.
