The Bomber Hybrid is a combination of a mechanical hackamore and American Gag, giving it the combined effects of the hackamore and the bit. Ideal for strong sensitive mouthed horses as it distributes pressure uniformly on the nose, mouth and the poll. The reins can be attached at various positions to allow for varying degrees of leverage. The amount of movement in the mouthpiece can be altered by moving the stopper above the mouthpiece. The nose piece is padded for the horse’s comfort and a nylon curb strap is included. Care must be taken that, as with any mechanical hackamore, the noseband sits above the nasal bone.
Bomber recommends that this sophisticated combination bit is suitable for experienced riders to use on a strong but sensitive horse, the adjustable settings offered for rein attachments will vary pressure on the nose, mouth and curb.
