The Eggbutt Gag is made with 4-1/2" stainless steel rings and a sweet iron mouth piece. The Eggbutt shape will prevent pinching of the lips. The release is slower and some slight poll pressure is introduced. The Eggbutt Gag is the gag version of the Eggbutt is stronger and will create more leverage on the mouthpiece whilst at the same time introducing more poll pressure.
The Barry is a severe bit due to the center links of the two pieces being offset by 20mm giving it a double nutcracker action, which creates more tongue and bar pressure.
Good for strong older horses.
The mouth pieces is made from blue sweet iron, because it:
helps bit acceptance
is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
