The Loose Ring allows for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth.
The Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece. It is curved and ported to give tongue relief. The Happy Tongue would be a good place to start if your horse is:
- Shaking its head
- Sticking its tongue out
- Sucking its tongue back and as a result making an intermittent coughing noise
- Trying to put its tongue over the bit
- Going behind the bit to avoid the contact
- Snatching the reins forward and down
The rider will know immediately if this is the correct bit, as a horse with a sensitive tongue will finally begin to work into, and accept the contact.

I bought this bit form my warmblood who would stick his tongue out and when the work got harder her would put his tongue over the bit. This behaviour stopped as soon as I changed his bit to the bombers happy tongue and now he is happy to seek the contact.
Yvette Waller was very helpful in finding the right bit for my Clydie Cross who was a bit rushed and heavy in the hand - the Bomber Happy Tongue has made him into a feather light in the hand - very impressed with the bit and Yvette’s professionalism.
My horse responded very well using the new bit thanks.
Love this bit, use it on my standy who’s ex harness and it’s helped her so much with her head tossing and helps her collect on the bit better.
My horse is extremely sensitive and fussy, and I've had her in a lozenge link snaffle for nearly 5 years. She has always been just a little bit unhappy with it, but it was the snaffle she liked the best out of all the ones I'd tried. She's always had a few minor niggling training issues that I didn't know how to fix - the big one was lugging on the left rein - and this bit has fixed all of them.
Had my first ride with this bit last week and my horse took to it very well. He was happy to take up the contact confidently.
We purchased this bit for a young gelding that has just been broken in and is very soft in the mouth. He has accepted the bit very well and we are extremely pleased with the result.
I have a young warmblood gelding that is now happily accepting the bridle being put on, lovely stretching to the contact and we can actually halt without having to give a tug on the neckstrap to avoid the heavy in the hands feeling.
really happy with it
