  1. Shires Brass Alloy Flat Ring Jointed Eggbutt Snaffle
    £28.99

    The Shires Brass Alloy Flat Ring Jointed Eggbutt Snaffle is a single jointed snaffle designed with a thin, 12mm mouthpiece which can give a stronger action. However, a thin mouthpiece may be more comfortable for horses with a smaller mouth or larger tongue as it allows for more room inside the mouth. The brass alloy mouthpiece combines copper alloyed with a harder metal to produce a bit which is durable and warms quickly. It also gives a more palatable taste than a stainless steel alternative, increasing acceptance of the bit and aiding salivation.

    The fixed Eggbutt cheeks on this snaffle are designed to prevent the bit from pinching the lips and corners of the mouth. They also stabilise the mouthpiece which can give confidence to a green or uncertain horse, encouraging them to take the contact forward. The bit rings are smaller on the smaller bits to stay in proportion with the horse's head.

    Bit ring measurements: 55mm (4.5", 5"), 75mm (5.5", 6")

    - Designed with a thin mouthpiece which can make the action slightly stronger
    - A thin mouthpiece can be more comfortable for horses with a smaller mouth or a larger tongue
    - Fixed Eggbutt cheek rings prevent pinching whilst stabilising the bit inside the horse's mouth
    - Smaller bit rings on smaller bits ensure the bit is in proportion

  2. Shires Brass Alloy Flat Ring Eggbutt Snaffle With Lozenge
    £31.99

    The Shires Brass Alloy Flat Ring Eggbutt Snaffle With Lozenge is a double jointed snaffle designed with a thin, 13mm mouthpiece which can give a slightly stronger action. However, a thin mouthpiece may be more comfortable for horses with a smaller mouth or larger tongue as it allows for more room inside the mouth. The lozenge disperses pressure evenly across the tounge; the double joint ensures there is no interference with the palate when pressure is applied. The brass alloy mouthpiece combines copper alloyed with a harder metal to produce a bit which is durable and warms quickly. It also gives a more palatable taste than a stainless steel alternative, increasing acceptance of the bit and aiding salivation.

This bit is useful for horses which show aversion to other bits, such as stainless steel, and can encourage mouthing in younger horses.

They also stabilise the bit inside the horse's mouth which can encourage a green or inconsistent horse to seek the contact forwards. The bit rings are smaller on the smaller bits to remain in proportion with the horse's face.

  20. Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Universal - 8023U/8024U
    £129.54

    The Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Universal offers the rider additional control without increasing the severity of the mouthpiece, making it an ideal choice for faster work such as fast work and jumping, allowing turns to be much more accurate and precise. The Tranz Angled Lozenge is positioned on the tongue helping to encourage the horse to relax through the jaw. The ergonomically designed curved mouthpiece eliminates interference with the upper palate and prevents the bit from lying too far forwards in the mouth.

    The bit is fantastic for use during faster work such as jumping as it utilises alternate pressure points on the horses head generating more control without upping the severity of the mouthpiece. The design aids the rider in turning and generally eliminates head tossing associated with downwards transitions or shortening strides for fences. The bit provides four rein options including the option for a curb and Pelham roundings when riders require additional control. 

    8023U: 5 - 6.5"; 16mm mouthpiece.

    8024U: 5.5"; 18mm mouthpiece.
