EGGBUTT DR BRISTOL SNAFFLE BIT
Eggbutt Dr. Bristol Snaffle Bit
Cheek pieces are 3 1/4 inches tall, 2 3/4 inches wide, link is 2 1/2 inches
The Eggbutt The eggbutt is a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesn’t move around to much in the mouth, it should encourage the horse to stretch into the contact. An eggbutt bit would be less suitable if your horse is prone to leaning or taking hold of the bit
Dr Bristol This mouthpiece has 2 joints, which means the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth. Because the mouthpiece has two joints, it shouldn’t cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The Dr Bristol uses tongue pressure to encourage the horse to go on the bit, the flat shaped lozenge centre piece is set at an angle therefore causing a sharper, more pronounced pressure to the tongue, this bit will not encourage a true contact although may be useful if you need that extra bit of help in order to slow down or stop, it has bar and lip pressure but not a ’squeezing’ action like that of a bit with a single joint. The more joints a bit has the less likely the horse is to lean as the bit becomes more mobile.
Size: 6", 6 1/2"

This bit is made out of stainless steel with a rubber mouthpiece
Rubber Mouthpieces have a warmer feel to the horse’s mouth. Horses that do not easily accept stainless steel will sometime accept rubber. The rubber mouthpiece is also useful for a horse with sensitive bars or tongue. The rubber mouthpiece is a milder alternative than stainless steel because the mouthpiece is normally thicker; therefore the pressure is distributed over a larger area. A rubber bit may however be unsuitable if your horse has thicker fleshy lips and/or a large tongue.
