Made a huge difference, really happy.
Need to promote a true and consistent contact?
-This eggbutt snaffle gives stability within the mouth, boosting the horse's confidence to seek the bit.
- Very beneficial for short, tense necks and excellent for directional control.
- No loss in feel unlike other fixed cheeks (ie. the horse will not fix against the hand)
- The Neue Schule Eggbutt can be of benefit to the horse that is inconsistent with the contact or that tends to sit behind the contact rather than take the bit forward. The Eggbutt cheeks can also help a rider with unsteady hands by smoothing out some of the bumps and wobbles in the aids to the horse.
- Dressage Legal.
- 8023E with 16mm mouthpiece, 70mm rings (5"-6")
If your horse is tentative into the contact (inconsistent), the NS Eggbutt offers the stability within the mouth needed to boost the horse’s confidence causing it to seek the bit taking the rein forwards.
I recently purchased a Neue Schule Tranz Angle Eggbutt Snaffle for a new horse after having had success with another of their bits (team-up) with my other horse. From the first ride she was a lot steadier on the contact, reaching, bending and quieter in the mouth. Highly recommend this brand of bits - pricey but worth it for a happy horse! Fantastic, fast delivery from the bit bank as well!
This is my second NS snaffle, and I really like this brand. Both of my young horses seem to enjoy the salox gold- salivating nicely without constant fussing and 'fiddling'. I have the loose ring version of this bit for my mare, who can get a bit fussy and heavy, and now the Eggbutt Tranzangled lozenge for my gelding, who tends to hold himself 'behind the contact', and get a bit short in the neck. He is much happier with the eggbutt design and immediately became more consistent in reaching forward and down into a steady contact. This bit does exactly what it is designed to do, and the service was incredibly fast! I ordered the bit (from QLD) on wednesday and was riding in it on Thursday arvo! I'll definitely use the Bit Bank Aus for all my bitting info and purchases and highly recommend sending Anita an email for some great advice and excellent service! Thank you :)
After trying a few different bits I am very happy with the NS Eggbutt snaffle. My horse is working so much better for me and he seems very happy. His mouth begins to water as soon as the bit is in his mouth. He is softer and more consistant with the contact. Anita was very helpful and the 30 day trial is such a great idea. I was able to try a few different bits and be sure that my horse and I were happy. The new website is great and I will use again in the future when shopping for bits. Thanks again Anita.
