Korsteel Stainless Steel Jointed Loose Ring Eggbutt Snaffle Bit
The Korsteel Loose Ring Eggbutt Snaffle has the advantages of both the fixed mouthpiece of a traditional eggbutt and the mobility of a traditional loose ring combined into one! The single-jointed mouthpiece of the snaffle works on the bars, and the tongue of the horse's mouth. As every bit does, it has a mild effect on the corners of the mouth as well. The fixed nature of the Eggbutt bit rings to the mouthpiece encourage a horse to have a steady contact, and to 'lean into' a feel. It is a fantastic strength, which has the down side of either a horse taking this too far, and leaning too much, or a horse preferring the small freedom and movement of a loose ring, and thus getting a little resentful of the fixed nature of an Eggbutt. This mouthpiece and these bit rings encourage the horse to relax to a comfortable contact, while still giving the feel of movement and freedom of a loose ring. Some horses will also really appreciate the Eggbutt shape for the corners of their mouth, eliminating the small risk a loose ring has of pinching skin. The bit is made from hand-polished stainless steel, is very durable, non-corrosive, and easy to clean and maintain.
