Snaffle Cherry Roller
Our Snaffle is a popular bit due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars and reduces the nutcracker action. The offset centre link avoids the usual pressure point on the tongue. The nutcracker action results in the horse lifting its head, therefore offers a solution for the horse that runs with its head down.
Bombers subtle innovations make this bit far more acceptable than the traditional counterparts.
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 Snaffle Cherry Roller creates a pressure point on the tongue due to the link concentrating pressure on a small surface area, this pressure point is less sharp than a general snaffle as we have designed our snaffle with an offset link, creating a less obvious pressure point. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a single break, it will create a squeeze on the bars – this squeeze on the bars is more than the squeeze created by a double jointed mouthpiece. 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. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The single break, Snaffle Cherry Roller, is a broken mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
