The Baucher has an Eggbutt like ring at the mouthpiece for the rein, with an upper cheek that has a ring at its end, to which the cheekpiece of the bridle is attached.
The mouthpiece does not slide on its ring resulting in a very still and stable mouthpiece. The cheekpieces lies flat against the horse's face, and the mouthpiece is quite fixed in the mouth and concentrates pressure on the bars.
Our Snaffle is a popular bit due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars. With the offset centre link it will reduce the nutcraker action and pressure points on the tongue.
All Bomber bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note that due to the oxidisation the blue will fade with use.

This bit has been great for my mare. She has a sensitive mouth resulting in lots of chewing and head shaking with a traditional snaffle. This bit sits very still in her mouth and she keeps her head steady. The steering is much more precise too, she responds to the rein aids much more promptly.
I tried out a few bits on my mare and this one really suited her. She is so much quieter in the mouth with no more head tossing. The steering is much more accurate and no more drifting sideways on the approach to jumps.
