The Shires Standard Curved Eggbutt features a slight curve to provide additional room for your horse’s tongue. This, paired with the bit’s narrow port, results in less tongue pressure and a gentler bit that your horse is more likely to willingly accept. This snaffle bit is one of the more popular bits for starting young horses due to the pressure it exerts on the bars of the horse’s mouth and the generous eggbutt rings that also assist with steering. A relatively gentle bit, the jointed mouthpiece allows for additional give and flex. The eggbutt rings exert direct pressure on the sides of the horse’s mouth, which can help encourage a young horse to give to the bit’s pressure. This design also helps to avoid pinching the horse’s mouth, as the eggbutt rings are broad and, when the horse is bridled, they lie fairly flat against his mouth. The Shires Standard Curved Eggbutt is available in different sizes. It is ideal for starting a young horse, and because of its curved mouthpiece, it is a great solution for a sensitive-mouthed horse or for a horse with a relatively small mouth. This bit also makes a great step back bit for a horse who has had a bad bitting experience, or it can be used as a standard bit for a horse who doesn’t need a lot of pressure.
