HOLLOW MOUTH EGGBUTT SNAFFLE

$ 26.49

Eggbutt hollow mouth snaffle with jointed mouthpiece, made from stainless steel using the investment cast, lost wax method for the highest quality finish. Some horses often Arab or thoroughbred type, dislike a single joint as they have a low palette, in this case a french link or double jointed mouthpiece often keeps the horse relaxed in his mouth more than a single joint. The eggbutt hollow mouth jointed snaffle is thought to be one of the simplest bits, and can be good for novice horses or riders as the eggbutt cheek prevents too much vibration from the riders rein being felt by the horse. The lightweight hollow mouth means the horse carries little extra weight on the cheekpieces, and the thicker mouthpiece dissipates the pressure on the bars. The thicker mouthpiece is not ideal to use with a horse with a thicker tongue, but can be good for horses with sensitive bars.

Jointed Hollow Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle features:
  • Works on the roof of the mouth and bars, although less than a standard eggbutt because of the extra thickness, due to the nutcracker action
  • Can sometimes help prevent the horse from getting its tongue over the bit due to the high nature of the bit mouthpiece in the horses mouth when in use
  • Thicker, lightweight mouthpiece is good for sensitive horses with average tongues
  • The hollow mouth eggbutt snaffle can be used in dressage competitions
  • Bit strength: fairly mild
