Why choose a flat ring Eggbutt snaffle for your horse?
This is a good choice for horses with a small mouth or a large tongue because the slight curve of the mouthpiece reduces the nutcracker action and helps to prevent the bit from coming into contact with the palate. Fixed Eggbutt cheeks help to reduce vibrations down the reins, giving a more stable feeling to the horse. A single joint puts pressure on the lips and bars of the mouth. The thinner mouthpiece gives a slightly strong action but is still mild enough to be used by novice riders.
Made from stainless steel, which is the most common material used for horse bits, it is durable, easy to clean, tasteless and does not rust. A great all-round bit suited to many horses.

Stainless Steel Horse Bits…
Stainless steel is the most commonly used material for horse bits as it is durable, easy to clean and does not rust. Some of our stainless steel bits feature copper mouthpieces which help to create a warming sensation and encourage the horse to salivate and accept the bit. Stainless steel bits are suitable for a wide range of horses and are available in many designs so that you can choose the right bit for your horse and discipline.
