, we offer many different styles and variations, including loose ring snaffles
, Pelham bits
As there are many different types of bits, we have created this collection to offer you a wide selection of different bit types. Popular types include the eggbutt
and the hackamore bit.
An eggbutt snaffle bit
is similar to the loose ring snaffles
and full cheek snaffle bits, however the mouthpiece does not actually rotate within the horse's mouth. This lack of movement is something the horse actually will prefer as reduces any likelihood of the mouthpiece pinching the inside of it'd mouth or lips. This little difference can actually make a tremendous difference in the long-term, the risk or likelihood of any lasting oral irritations or damage is significantly less.
A hackamore is actually a piece of headgear that doesn't use horse bit at all, however it does have a similar use for riders as it can direct and communicate with your horses. A hackamore works in a slightly different way than a regular bit, a horse bit
works by placing pressure on various sensitive areas of the mouth (for instance: the tongue, roof or mouth bars), whereas the hackamore applies pressure using a noseband. A hackamore can be just as effective as a bit in the right hands.
