Korsteel Eggbutt Snaffle with Copper Rollers

Korsteel Eggbutt Snaffle with Copper Rollers

This horse bit has a single jointed copper roller mouthpiece and eggbutt cheeks.

Price: £19.99

Eggbutt Cheeks:
The eggbutt is a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesn't move around to much in the mouth, it should encourage the horse to stretch into the contact. An eggbutt bit would be less suitable if your horse is prone to leaning or taking hold of the bit.

Single Jointed Bits:
The single joint puts pressure on the sides of the tongue, on the lips and on the bars due to the nutcracker action. The single jointed bits tend to have a head raising action so would be less suitable for animals with a high head carriage. Also they are not so suitable for horses with particularly large tongues because they have less room in the mouth for a single jointed bit as this pushes the bit nearer the roof of the mouth, also Arabs and alike may have a low palate, with both of these examples the nutcracker action may cause brushing of the roof of the mouth.

Copper Rollers:
These mouthpieces incorporate stainless steel and copper rollers, the rollers may help if your horse tends to lean on the bit and or set their jaw. As the rollers are movable they are not easy for the horse to get a grip of. They also encourage mouthing as it gives them something to play with.
