Bombers Bits- Classic Dee Waterford Barrel
The Dee ring is similar in action to the Eggbutt, it prevents pinching and gives a slightly more solid feel against the cheeks. This prevents the bit from being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and some slight poll pressure is introduced.
The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bobbles which spread the pressure making it a light mouthpiece. The mouthpiece curves around the tongue applying even tongue and less bar pressure. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it, it also promotes mouthing and salivation.
The Waterford is usually worn ¼” – ½” or 5mm – 10mm longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the tongue and maximise the effect.
