The Weymouth, or curb bit, in a double bridle consists of a mouthpiece with shanks and a curb chain.
The Weymouth works on several parts of a horse's head and mouth. The bit mouthpiece acts on the bars, tongue and roof of the mouth. The shanks add leverage and place pressure on the poll via the crownpiece of the bridle, to the chin groove via the curb chain, and, especially with a "loose jaw" shank, may act on the sides of the mouth and jaw. This mouthpiece is curved and softer than another Bombers Weymouth style called Happy Tongue Straight.
Supplied with English Curb Chain and hooks.
Mouthpiece Thickness: 14mm
Compatible Bradoons; Elliptical Cable, Snaffle Cable, Elliptical Range and Control Plate Dressage
The Straight Port is more upright and similar shape to the Bomber Blue port. The more upright the port, we find the stronger the weymouth and also lifts the horse at the poll.
