As with the Pelham, the action of the Kimblewick is dependent upon the position of the riders hands. The rein slides on the Dee shaped bit ring. If the hands are lowered prior to pressure being applied to the reins, the rein will slide about an inch and the bit will assume roughly a 45° angle in the mouth. Causing the mouthpiece to act in a downward and backward motion on the lower jaw, this is complemented by a downward pressure on the poll, giving the bit a lowering action. There are 3 rein settings which increase or decrease the pressure.
Bomber would recommend this for the more experienced rider and for show jumping and eventing where the multiple
pressure settings allow for quick adjustment.
Available in horse and pony size.
The Kimblewick Lite has a shorter purchase than the standard Kimblewick. Shortening the purchase softens the amount of leverage that the bit is able to apply.
Reins can be attached at:
A- Decreases the poll pressure decreasing
the mouthpiece leverage.
B- Introduces light poll pressure leveraging
C- Introduces poll pressure leveraging
