The Bomber Happy Tongue Hybrid is a combination of a mechanical hackamore and American Gag, giving it the combined effects of the hackamore and the bit. Hence, ideal for a strong sensitive mouthed horses as it distributes pressure uniformly on the nose, mouth and the poll.
Furthermore, 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 in addition the nylon curb strap is included.
Care must be taken, as with any mechanical hackamore, that the noseband sits above the nasal bone.
The Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece. It is curved and ported and as a result gives 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
