Bombers Medium Ring Gag McHardy
A gag works by lifting the bit in the mouth in order to encourage the head to be raised. Often used on strong horses that like to lower their heads in order to escape the action of the bit in the mouth and get very strong.
When pressure is applied to the rein, the bit is lifted in the mouth and poll pressure is applied. The bit also rotates slightly in the mouth putting more pressure on the tongue and bars. To be correctly used, it must be used with two reins one on the gag rein and one on the big ring only bringing the gag rein into play when needed.
The Bombers McHardy was created for horses with sensitive tongues. It has a medium port creating room for the tongue and thus relieves pressure. The buster roller in the middle increases bar pressure and this results in the horse lifting it’s head and giving the rider more control.
