Loose Ring Control Plate
Loose Ring Control Plate
Our Price: $90.00

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 Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.


The mouth piece is made from blue sweet iron, because it:

  • oxidizes easily
  • encourages salivation
  • helps with bit acceptance
  • it's warm and sweet to the touch

Please note the blue will fade with use.
