Winning Tongue Plate Bits

NO MORE TONGUE TIES or unnecessary WIND OPS

We are very excited to be promoting this fantastic award winning range from Australia which has had amazing testimonials from hundreds of top, Southern hemisphere trainers.

 

We were particularly interested in the fact that it can prevent soft palate displacement, but we were somewhat sceptical as we normally like to fully trial a new product first.

 

Having read all the testimonials and spoken to Adrian (who designed the bit) and some of the trainers concerned, we were 100% convinced.

Apart from preventing displacement of the soft palate the tongue plate bit also has many other benefits:- 

WTP Benefits:

  • Prevents displacement of the soft palate,
     

  • Stops abnormal respiratory noise
     

  • Reduces thickness of wind
     

  • Provides better oxygen supply
     

  • Proven to prevent bleeding at exercise (EIPH).
     

  • Stops the bit pinching the tongue
     

  • Stops the horse getting the tongue over the bit
     

  • Prevents the tongue hanging out the side of the mouth
     

  • Stops the horse pulling or bolting
     

  • Prevents the horse hanging and rearing
     

  • Stops the horse headshaking
     

  • Also acts as a more effective and kind anti-rearing bit.

For soft palate displacement for racehorses the extended plate bits are recommended.  A wind operation will still be necessary for horses which have larynx problems.

Our preferred option is the lozenge WTP bits which are very gentle on the horses mouth but train the tongue to stay in place.

For any other bit problems - hanging, rearing, head shaking, or any pain associated with your normal bit a normal plate is recommended
