Happy Tongue Cherry Roller
The Happy Tongue is a solid mouthpiece uniquely ported to give maximum tongue relief. The Happy Tongue is curved to be softer on the bars and slow in applying tongue pressure.
This is by far our most successful design – we recommend for all horses that show tongue sensitive signs. The narrower ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.
The Cherry Rollers roll in the horse’s mouth giving him something to play with and reducing the likelihood of the bit being held in the horse’s teeth. They are constructed tightly so there is no chance of pinching. When pulling on the reins, the rollers allow the bit to move along the bars of the horse’s jaws as opposed to rubbing.
The Happy Tongue Cherry Roller offers optimal tongue relief by spreading pressure across the bars. Pressure applied to the bars is softened due to the generous curvature of the mouthpiece. The Cherry Rollers will increase pressure applied to the bars as the individual rollers will create pressure points on the bars. These rollers are movable and reduce the chances of the bit being held in the horses’ teeth. The Happy Tongue Cherry Roller is a solid mouthpiece and will not create a squeeze on the bars. The Happy Tongue 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 solid, Happy Tongue, has no movement. The 4 available ports have been scaled according to each width. This ensures accurate fitting over the bars and eliminates the rocking movement which occurs when the port is too wide.
