Description

The Shires Blue Sweet Iron Flat Eggbutt Snaffle With Lozenge is a warm, palatable bit with a mild action. The double jointed lozenge mouthpiece distributes pressure across the tongue and bars without interfering with the palate which is comfortable for the horse and encourages contact. Blue sweet iron oxidises easily in the mouth, creating warmth and a sweet taste to encourage salivation and bit acceptance. This bit is useful for horses which show aversion to other bits, such as stainless steel, and can encourage mouthing in younger horses. 

Fixed Eggbutt rings prevent the lips and corners of the mouth from being pinched. 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.

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

Delivery & Returns

We want to be crystal clear when it comes to managing your expectations; our website is stock managed to show you what items are available for immediate dispatch and those which are externally warehouse and therefore, will take a little longer to arrive with you.

Simply make your product selections and a message will pop up telling you how long it will take us to dispatch your order; we call this our product availability message.  If you are happy with the product availability message on the item, checkout your order, carry on with your day and leave your order to our team.

If you have lots of items in your basket, please use the longest product availability message to work out when your order will arrive.  We care about our environmental impact, so we don't split ship orders unless you get in touch to request that we do so.  We will let you know on your order confirmation when we expect your order will arrive with you.

Whilst we do our best to meet the handling times stated in the product availability message, occasionally we can experience some delays in the delivery network.  At these times, a team member will email you to keep you updated on the progress of your order.

If you do require an order urgently, please contact us before ordering to ensure we can accommodate your requirements as we hate to be party poopers!
