Eggbutt snaffles are a popular type of bit used in horse riding. They are called "eggbutt" because the cheekpiece of the bit has a wider surface area, resembling the shape of an egg. This design helps to prevent the bit from sliding too far into the horse's mouth, providing more stability and control for the rider.

The eggbutt snaffle is a simple yet effective design, making it a great choice for both experienced and novice riders. It is particularly useful for horses with sensitive mouths, as the wider cheekpiece helps to distribute pressure more evenly and reduce discomfort. Additionally, the eggbutt snaffle is a popular choice for horses that are prone to leaning on the bit or taking hold of it with their tongue.

Eggbutt snaffles come in a variety of materials including stainless steel, copper and rubber. Each material has its own characteristics and advantages. Stainless steel is the most durable and easy to clean, copper has the ability to promote salivation and rubber has the ability to be gentle on the horse's mouth.

When using an eggbutt snaffle, it is important to ensure that it fits properly. The bit should sit comfortably in the horse's mouth and the cheekpieces should not be too tight or too loose. If the bit is too large or small, it can cause discomfort and lead to resistance from the horse.

In conclusion, the eggbutt snaffle is a versatile and effective bit that is well-suited for a wide range of horses and riding disciplines. Its simple design and wider cheekpiece make it a great choice for horses with sensitive mouths and those that are prone to leaning on the bit. With the right fit and proper use, the eggbutt snaffle can help to promote a comfortable and responsive ride for both horse and rider.

This collection features a range of different mouthpieces, including jointed, double jointed, rubber and straight bar eggbutt snaffles.
