Stockman Short Shank Bomber Blue

( 0 )

Width

The Stockman Short Shank is a leverage bit, meaning that it multiplies the pressure applied by the rider.

The shorter the shank, the more force is needed on the reins to provide a given amount of pressure on the mouth. The shorter shank bits only need to rotate a short distance before applying pressure on the horse's mouth than longer shanked bits. Therefore, the horse has less warning in a short shanked bit.

The curved shank is condusive to a nose-out head position when working. In addition to campdrafting these bits are suitable to other disciplines including cutting and endurance.

The Bomber Blue is a unique bit which produces amazing results for the majority of horses. The mouthpiece is ported to give tongue relief. The material used allows the bit to remain light and it encourages salivation. It is particularly well suited to horses that object to metal mouth pieces.

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. Fixed cheek pieces do not require any additional width to be added to the measured width of the horse's mouth. A fixed mouth piece does not require any additional width to be added to the measured width 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.
