Nylon mullen eggbut gag small rings
The gag bit is often a normal bit but above and below in the bitring there is an eye through which vertically a special baking piece has to be made especially for a gag. The lifting is intended to encourage the horse to raise his head. This bit is often used with horses that hang on the hand or dive. The horse gets pressure through the string behind the ears and the bit slides up in the mouth. The pick-up ring can also be used in combination with a curb chain.
The eggbut is a standard side piece. The rings cannot move separately, so that the aid acts more directly and the bit lies relatively still in the mouth. In addition, the bit prevents the lips from getting caught, so that bit rings are not required for this side piece.
Small rings have a more direct effect of the aids than larger rings. The smaller the rings, the more pressure is transferred to a smaller surface. Nice bit for a stronger horse.
Properties of the straight mouthpiece:
A straight mouthpiece often works sharper than a single or double-mouthed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines where the pressure will lie in the mouth. A straight mouthpiece with tongue / port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free. The straighter and thicker the mouthpiece, the more pressure on the tongue.
