Bombers Bits

Posted by Michelle Carney on

Available at Marsh Carney Saddlery, Bomber has been developing quality equine products for over 30years providing innovative solutions to riders’ challenging problems in the area of bitting. Bomber Bits are the pinnacle of handmade quality along with innovation to create world class products. These bits lend themselves to a wide variety of disciplines including Cutting, Campdrafting, Dressage, Endurance, Polocrosse, Showing, Racing, Eventing and Showjumping.


Bomber's philosophy is that pressure leads to resistance, and resistance leads to lack of control. Therefore, to get control, one must remove the resistance and the only way to remove the resistance is to remove the pressure. If one cannot remove the pressure, one needs to distribute the pressure over a bigger surface area.

So, to get back to the principle that the horse's balance is in the head, there are very specific tell-tale signs to use in diagnosing the specific problem a horse may have with his bit.

These are the signs that give a clue as to why exactly the horse is resisting and provide the information needed to select the right bit.


Firstly, measuring of the horse's mouth, says Bomber, is a crucial aspect to fitting the correct bit. It is important to look inside the horse's mouth to identify any abnormalities, injuries and to assess any specific requirements. A custom bit may be required in extreme cases.


The second prerequisite is that the horse's back and neck should have been checked by a qualified person. Remember, the only reason why a horse will resist, is due to pain or discomfort, and no amount of bit fitting will help if the pain or discomfort lies in the neck and back. Only when these points have been eliminated, can I possibly help.

The Marsh Carney Saddlery stores have over 35years experience in the Industry with a qualified saddle fitter also available to assist with the total comfort of the horse. Marsh Carney Staff have all attended the training workshops provided by Bomber bits. These workshops explained the different mouth pieces, cheek pieces and pressure points available in the Bomber Bit range to best find a bit suitable for our customers.

Every horse is different and at Marsh Carney Saddlery we understand that there are many different factors influencing the performance of a horse and rider combination. We work closely with the team at Bomber Bits to best find the product for you. With the range and assistance from our friendly staff in any of our 3 stores we will be sure to find something that will help you and your horse perform at your best.
