The Shires Tom Thumb with Copper Lozenge is a leverage bit that should be used with care. This well-built bit has an appealing central link of copper that encourages salivation and gives off a great taste! Tom Thumb Bits are designed to use as a transitional bit between a training snaffle and a curb bit. They should be considered only in very isolated situations, as their design sends conflicting aids and pressure to the horse, making it a damaging bit in many hands. The bit is not meant to accommodate any use of a direct rein. This Tom Thumb with Copper Lozenge by Shires is meant to have the cheekpieces of the bridle attached to the upper rings, exerting pressure on the horse's poll. Because the rings are extended out on longer shanks, it increases the severity of the leverage action. The reins should be attached to the middle ring and the lower ring for leverage. This is a severe bit that has a lovely mouthpiece but a restrictive design of the bit cheeks, making it very upsetting to a horse in the wrong hands. The copper lozenge oxidizes in the horse’s mouth, encouraging salivation. The copper also provides a pleasing taste to the horse, also encouraging a wet mouth. The wetter the mouth, the more sensitive and responsive it is. The Shires Tom Thumb with Copper Lozenge is available in different sizes.
