Loose Ring Cherry Roller Happy Tongue
Cheek Pieces: 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.
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. The Cherry Rollers roll in the horses mouth, giving him something to play with and reducing the likelihood of the bit being held in the horse's teeth. They are constructed tightly so there is no chance of pinching. When pulling on the reins, the rollers allow the bit to move along the bars of the horse's jaws as opposed to rubbing.
