The Eggbutt Snaffle is probably the most widely used snaffle bit.

The eggbutt shape lessens the chance of the lip being pinched between the mouthpiece and bit ring. As you can see, the mouthpiece itself widens out at the sides, and the join between the mouthpiece and the ring is distanced from the horse's lips. This shape makes the bit less mobile than the loose-ring snaffle -- the mouthpiece doesn't move quite so much in the horse's mouth.

The single jointed mouthpiece will allow the tongue to be freer than with a double jointed mouthpiece or straight bit. A single broken mouthpiece works mainly on the bars and the sides of the tongue giving a nutcracker action.

Available in Stainless Steel in 4', 4.5', 5', 5.5' or 6'.

Please note that bits which have had the tags removed or have been in contact with the horses mouth cannot be returned for health & safety reasons.
