"Pressure = Resistance"
"Resistance = Lack of control"

A horse is an animal of flight – it will never yield to pressure or pain, it will either move away from it or run away.
Therefore pressure = resistance = lack of control.
To obtain control we need to remove the resistance.
To remove the resistance, one must remove the pressure or distribute the pressure over a larger surface area.

STEP 01

A Bomber bit is entirely handcrafted. All the component parts are welded, formed and ground by hand.

The sweet iron after treatment, gives off a striking and attractive deep blue tint.

The finishing touch: the size and brand name are stamped on the left-hand side of the bit.

STEP 01

Cheekpieces
Loose
A loose cheek piece moves vertically through the mouthpiece. This slippage will result in poll pressure but allow for reaction before the mouthpiece is leveraged. Bombers bits are carefully chamfered by hand to minimise any pinch, although add 5mm in width when using a loose cheek piece.
#50
Fixed
The mouthpiece is fixed to the cheekpiece, as the cheekpiece rotates under rein pressure the mouthpiece is leveraged in the horses mouth. With the release of the reins and tension the cheekpiece is slow to return to neutral. A fixed cheek piece is designed to sit closely to the horses lips, and encourages flexion.
Fixed & Loose
A unique group of cheek pieces are fixed against the cheek and exhibit the positive features of a loose ring. A fixed cheek piece is designed to sit closely to the horses lips, and encourages flexion. The loose ring will slip through mouthpiece resulting in some poll pressure but allowing for the horse to react before the mouthpiece starts to be leveraged. With the release of the reins and tension the mouthpiece is quick to return to neutral.
