A D- bit is the same as an eggbutt only the bit rings has the shape of a ‘D’. The straight section of the bitring ensures a ‘limitation’ and pressure distribution on the mouth and cheek of the horse. This makes the horse easier to turn and stops the bit from pulling through the mouth. This makes the D-snaffle bit useful for schooling young horses.
Attention: this bit is a bit sharper than a loose ring snaffle or an eggbutt snaffle bit.
This bit lies stable and calm in the mouth.
The double-broken mouthpiece consists of 3 parts. The middle part of this mouthpiece lies flat on the tongue and will put more pressure on the tongue than a single broken mouthpiece. The thicker the middle part, the more pressure on the tongue.
The Segundo relieves the tongue pressure and at the same time retains the effect of the bit on the layers, encouraging the horse to keep the contact light. Horses find it difficult to lean on this mouthpiece or stick their tongue over the bit.
