Eggbutt Snaffle Bits

 

Snaffles are the most common groups of bits for every day riding. Snaffle bits are identified as having no leverage or pulley action and do not have a curb chain. There is a vast variety of snaffle bits on the market, allowing you to find the most suitable option for your horse. They vary in severity, depending on the type and thickness of the mouthpiece. Snaffles apply pressure to the lips, tongues and bars of the mouth and have a general upwards action, encouraging the horse to raise his head and neck.


Eggbutt snaffles can be identified by the mouthpiece being fixed to the bit rings; the bit rings are a rounded-off “D” shape. The fixed cheeks of an eggbutt prevent the horse’s lips being pinched and are an ideal choice for more sensitive horses. Also, fixed cheeks will stabilise the mouthpiece inside the horse’s mouth. This can help to make the horse more confident to seek and accept a contact.


Some common types of eggbutt snaffle are:

  • French link eggbutt snaffle
  • Eggbutt snaffle with lozenge
  • Happy Mouth eggbutt snaffle


When selecting the correct bit for your horse remember that conformation, age, stage of training, type of work, oral health and your ability as a rider are all contributing factors. If in doubt, it’s recommended that the rider seek advice from their instructor when choosing a bit.
