Pony Wilkie Waterford

Width

The Wilkie utilises pressure on the poll and raising the bit in the horse's mouth to achieve additional control without resorting to a stronger mouthpiece. This is similar to the action of a ring bit but to a milder degree which is why it has found favour for use on ponies.

Our pony bits feature cheekpieces that are a ¾ scale version of our standard bits.

The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bumps or bubbles, which spreads the pressure over many points making it a light mouthpiece. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it.

The Waterford bit is a good choice for a horse that leans, it also promotes mouthing and salivation. The Waterford is usually worn ¼" - ½" longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the lips and maximise the effect.

Notes:
1 The measured width of a horse's mouth (from corner to corner with no wrinkles) rounded up to the nearest 5mm. These are typical values for the breed. MMS = Measured Mouth Size. Click here for more information on measuring your horse's mouth
2 Factors to be added to the measured width of a horse's mouth to ensure the bit width is calculated correctly. This varies depending on the mouthpiece and cheekpiece of the bit. For this bit add 5 mm for a loose ring cheek piece, to allow for space between the ring and the horse's lip, eliminating a possible pressure point and pinching. Add 10 mm for a single or double break bit. This is to allow the bit to follow the contour of the horse's mouth.
3 The width of the bit for a optimal fit, taking into account its components and the width of the horse's mouth. If calculating a bit width based upon a previously purchased Bomber bit, please make sure all relevant adjustments for differences in cheek and mouth pieces are adhered too.
4 Measurements in inches are approximate.
