The Happy Tongue is a solid mouth piece is curved and ported to give tongue relief. The Happy Tongue would be a good place to start if your horse is:
- Shaking its head
- Sticking its tongue out
- Sucking its tongue back and as a result making an intermittent coughing noise
- Trying to put its tongue over the bit
The rider will know immediately if this is the correct bit. Changing the cheekpieces would then allow the rider to adjust the level of control.
