The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bobbles which spread the pressure making it a light mouthpiece. The mouthpiece curves around the tongue applying even tongue and less bar pressure. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it, it also promotes mouthing and salivation.
Bomber recommends this for horses with tongue sensitive fussy mouths.
The Waterford creates pressure points on the tongue as each bobble creates an individual pressure point on the tongue. Due to several bobbles making up the mouthpiece, pressure is spread over a large surface area. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a broken mouthpiece, 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 Waterford is available in Titanium. The Titanium material was designed as an alternative metal option to sweet iron, this metal was specifically chosen due to its hypoallergenic nature.
The flexible, Waterford, is a broken mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
