Jointed bits put more pressure on parts of the lower jaw and on the sides of the tongue. A single jointed bit will restrict the blood flow in the tongue less when compared to a double jointed bit. Our single jointed eggbutt snaffle is made from a medium flexible plastic.To soften the pressure on the lower jaw, we designed an particularly flexible zone on the sides of the mouthpiece.
The shape and the angulation of the joint means it will sit evenly on the tongue so that blood flow will remain almost unrestricted. The bit fits perfectly in the mouth due to its slight curve. Pressure on the rein alters the angle of the bit and, due to its special design, produces an increased effect on the bars and tongue. The shaped transition from the mouthpiece to the bit rings prevents pinching and additionally provides the bit with particular lateral stability and hold. The shape of the bit is particularly suited to working with young horses.
