I had tried two different bits on my recently purchased mare, and she wasn't super happy with either of them. I spoke with Charmae and after describing the symptoms she recommended this bit. From the moment I put it in my ponies' mouth I could tell she was happy. So great to have the expert advice as there are so many bits available and it can be overwhelming.
About the Bit
Do you need something to help promote a true and consistent contact? Have a young horse that needs some help with lateral work and straightness?
The Neue Schule Trans Angled Eggbutt gives stability within the mouth, boosting the horse's confidence to seek the bit. This bit is very beneficial for short, tense necks and excellent for directional control and no loss in feel unlike other fixed cheeks (ie. the horse will not fix against the hand). This bit can benefit a 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.

Purchased for young ASH being classically trained. He was a bit unsettled in the mouth , and not settling into the contact ..after a week of this bit it's made a huge difference. He is much more comfortable and obviously very happy with this bit . Thankyou !
So happy with this bit, one ride and I can feel the difference! Happy horse and happy rider. The bitting consultation is such a wonderful service, I wouldn't have known which bit to choose without the expert advice.
Awesome bit, my horse loves it. Soft and supple.
My mare took to this bit so well I was able to remove the flash noseband straightaway. She is still training nicely and is happy to take the bit forward and down to stretch her neck.
Made a huge difference, really happy.
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.
