Fulmer Happy Tongue
Cheek Pieces: The Fulmer cheek piece will have the same effect as the traditional Eggbutt in that it will prevent pinching on the sides of the mouth. The Fulmer's extended pins above and below the bit prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth and also serve to guide the horse's head, which is great for schooling and training purposes.
Mouth Pieces: 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 out its tongue
- Sucking its tongue back and 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. Changing the cheek pieces would then allow the rider to adjust the level of control.
