Bombers Williams Snaffle Lock Up B14 Bit
A loose cheek piece moves vertically through the mouthpiece. Bombers bits are carefully chamfered by hand to minimise any pinch, although add 5mm in width when using a loose cheek piece.
Bomber recommends this fixed cheek which provides lateral aids while offering two rein positions to adjust poll and tongue pressure, does not require a back strap. May require extra width to allow for fleshy mouths.
The Lock Up snaffle removes the nut cracker action of the conventional snaffle, meaning less pressure on the bars.
Recommended by Bomber for tongue sensitive horses particularly competing in the dressage discipline. By “locking-up” the links of the snaffle or elliptical the nutcracker action is removed lessening bar pressure.
