Korsteel Featherweight Thin Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle

Korsteel Featherweight Thin Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle

A lightweight stainless steel horse bit with eggbutt cheeks with flat rings and a single jointed mouthpiece.

Price: £20.99

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.
