Zilco Full Cheek Bits

FM (Fulmer) Bit

Stainless steel. Also known as a Fulmer bit or Australian Loose Ring Cheek Snaffle. 

The long cheeks press against the sides of the muzzle during lateral movements and prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth. The cheeks can be left free, or they can be held in position through the use of FM Keepers. 

If keepers are used, the bit acts not only on the corners of the mouth, but also on the sides of the bars, exerting more pressure. The loose rings allow movement of the mouthpiece (as opposed to the Full cheek Eggbutt bit). 
Code: 12356

Full Cheek Bits

Tom Thumb- Nickel Plate

Stainless Steel with loose rings. The wings not only prevent the bit from being pulled through the horse's mouth, but exert lip pressure when the reins are used. 

This is a very popular all-round bit. It should not be confused with the USA version of the Tom Thumb, which is a completely different model bit.
