Control Plate Round Twist
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 Round Twist creates more pressure points on the bars making it a stronger bit.
The Control Plate 45 creates a pressure on the tongue. The plate is angled at 45 degrees to sit flat on the horses tongue, due to the wide center component, pressure is spread over a large surface area. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a double break, it will create a squeeze on the bars – however this squeeze on the bars is less than the squeeze created by a single jointed mouthpiece. The twists in the mouthpiece will create pressure points on the tongue that descend onto the bars. The round twist is slightly softer than the square twist as the twists are rounded. The Control Plate is available in Sweet Iron. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The double break, Control Plate 45, is a flexible mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
