Korsteel Stainless Steel Copper Quarter Moon Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle Bit
Unique and very ‘horse-friendly’, the Korsteel Copper Quarter Moon Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle has a variation on the double-jointed snaffles that could be exactly the right feel that will motivate your horse to go from liking his bit, to LOVING it! The double-jointed bits are very mild in their nature. The three sections that build the mouthpiece ‘drape’ over the horse’s tongue beautifully and evenly. The action is on the bars of the horse’s mouth and on the tongue. The Korsteel Copper Quarter Moon Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle has a very appealing contour to the central link, giving more room for the tongue, with an element of copper that will please many horses. The copper oxidizes and encourages salivation. The downside of copper is the relative softness of the metal; it can be subject to damage from the horse’s teeth. This Copper Quarter Moon link is the central link, thus protected from the horse’s teeth. It is blended with stainless steel and offers merely a hint of copper, receiving the benefits the metal brings without compromising the structural integrity of the mouthpiece. The Eggbutt rings are fixed, encouraging a horse to take a steady contact on the bridle. The mouthpiece will not rotate in the horse’s mouth, nor will it pull through. Eggbutt rings are preferable to the D-rings and Full Cheeks in that there is no corner or straight piece for the reins to ‘hook’ on. The stainless steel that makes up the majority of this beautiful bit is non-corrosive and extremely durable. It is also easy to clean and maintain!
