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.
The eggbutt snaffle bit is very suitable for young horses and riders with a average hand.
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.
Features single leather mouthpiece:
For horses that are sensitive to the layers or have an injury in the mouth leather bits are frequently used. This bit is soft. Leather has the characteristic that it is softer when wet by saliva in the mouth.
There is a leather cloth stitched around an existing bit. The Trust bits have a nylon core and are flexible so they form to the horse's mouth.
