Description eggbutt snaffle bit:
An eggbutt is a basic bit, in general a soft bit. The bit rings are oval and fixed to the mouthpiece, which gives a more direct reaction from the aid. The rubber bit guards are not needed. The bit is relatively stable in the horses mouth.
A loose ring snaffle is suitable for many horses and riders. The thinner the bit, the more experienced the horse and rider must be to use this.
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.
Features straight / unjointed mouthpiece:
A unjointed bit/straight bit often works sharper than a single or double jointed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines the pressure in the mouth. A straight mouth piece 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.
