Korsteel JP Eggbutt Snaffle

Korsteel JP Eggbutt Snaffle

This horse bit has a single jointed mouthpiece with J.P. curved mouth bars. It has eggbutt cheeks.

Price: £23.99

J.P. Bits:
Developed by Korsteel in conjunction with famous Australian horse trainer and jockey, John "Pato" Patterson, these quality stainless steel bits are unique in their design. Crafted with curved mouth bars that reduce the nutcracker action of a regular snaffle, they stop the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth. The curved shape also allows room for the horses tongue and eliminates interference that conventional bits cause. Perfect for performance horses, creating maximum comfort and therefore a top performance.

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.

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.
