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 Buster Roller link in the middle is shortened to 40mm which increases bar and tongue pressure making the bit sharper than conventional link bits. The increased pressure on the bar will lift the head and the roller will increase pressure on the tongue bringing the chin in. Best suited for a horse with a low head carriage and which leans on the bit.
Good for strong older horses.
The mouth piece is made from blue sweet iron, because it:
helps bit acceptance
is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
