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, as with any mechanical hackamore, that the noseband sits above the nasal bone.
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.
Bomber recommends that this sophisticated combination bit is suitable for experienced riders to use on a strong but sensitive horse, the adjustable settings offered rein attachments will vary pressure on the nose, tongue and curb.
The stopper can be adjusted with the Allen key provided. Ensure the bit stopper is set evenly on both sides. As the stopper is set further down the purchase grows, increasing the mouthpeice leverage, poll pressure, back strap and noseband pressure.
Reins can be attached at
A- the recommended position, the hybrid is a strong device, the longer shank allows for more hand movement.
