Happy Tongue Straight Cherry Roller
The Happy Tongue Straight is a solid mouth bit which is ported to relieve tongue pressure but is not curved. This makes it slightly harsher than the curved Happy Tongue.
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 Straight Cherry Roller offers optimal tongue relief by spreading pressure across the bars. The Happy Tongue Straight Cherry Roller is not curved, therefore it applies slightly more bar pressure than the standard Happy Tongue Cherry Roller. The Cherry Rollers will increase pressure applied to the bars as the individual rollers will create pressure points on the bars. The smooth surface of these rollers spread pressure evenly over a larger surface area on the bars. These rollers are movable and can act as something the horse can play with, reducing the chances of the bit being held in the horses’ teeth. T
he Happy Tongue Straight Cherry Roller is a solid mouthpiece and will not create a squeeze on the bars. It 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.
