Weymouth 75 Relaxed performance, Happy Tongue STR
The Weymouth 75 Relaxed Performer is the latest technology coming to bits.
Today, horses are carefully breed for aesthetics and to compete at specific disciplines. Therefore, in the quest to find a perfect balance of pressure, Bombers teamed up with Carsten Engelke to revolutionize the Weymouth for today’s champions.
Typically, a Weymouth applies pressure to the poll, curb and mouth. By innovating a spring-loaded purchase, we have introduced a relaxed performance:
- Softening the curb and poll pressures
- Quickening the release of pressure and reward
- Creating space for a balance of pressures, communication and synergy between horse and rider.
The original weymouth is designed with pressure to the lower jaw and neck.
By adding a spring-loaded moving part you have obtained a milder bite.
* Mild pressure on lower jaw and neck
* Faster / Shorter release
* Provides a good balance between pressure, communication and interaction between horse and rider.
"For horses who are not so comfortable with weymouth bits. The horses go with greater confidence into the hand. From one of our test riders we have also received very positive reactions for horses with heavy problems. " // Madelene Engelke
This bite was designed by Bombers in collaboration with Saddle me / Carsten Engelke
Supplied with English Curb Chain and hooks.

Bombers is a well-known South African company that has been designing and manufacturing quality bits, spurs and other equestrian products for over 30 years. The company specialises in providing innovative solutions to the most challenging problems horse riders face, especially when choosing the right bit to help your horse perform at its best. Bombers now offers bits to suit horses and riders participating in in a wide variety of disciplines like Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, Polo, Polocrosse, Cutting and Campdrafting, Pony Showing, Endurance and Icelandic.
Bombers products are made specifically to reflect the company’s core belief that:
Pressure = Resistance = Lack of Control
Basically, this acknowledges that a horse is an animal of flight that will run from, rather than yield to, pressure or pain. As such, the products/tools that achieve the best result in terms of the rider’s goals need to remove pressure or distribute it over a larger, more comfortable surface to encourage the horse to produce a better, more willing performance.
Bombers products are handmade onsite in the company’s South African manufacturing plant, with careful attention to quality and detail. For example, every single component that makes up their spurs and bits is laser cut, formed into shape, welded and ground my hand to achieve the perfect finish. The result is simply … world class — horse products that achieve the kind of results users can’t praise highly enough.
Bombers bits are famous for their striking and beautiful deep blue colour across the mouth piece. This is commonly believed to be an artificial coating; however, it’s the result of heat-treating sweet iron and is meant to gradually fade over time, with no effect on a bit’s performance.
SOFT METAL - 5 YEAR GUARANTEE
Mouthpieces that incorporate a brass component must be checked before use. Brass is a soft metal and will wear over time.
OUR BITS SHOULD BE WASHED AND WIPED AFTER USE. IF IT HAS BEEN OUT OF USE FOR SOME TIME, YOU MAY REQUIRE A KITCHEN SCOURER.
Please note due to oxidisation the blue will fade with use.
