The lozenge in the centre of this bit contours the shape of the tongue and helps to reduce the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit which helps form a soft contact, allowing clear aids to be given down the reins. Copper is a warm metal which encourages salivation and mouthing on the bit. A useful bit for horses that tend to lean against the riders hands.
Eggbutt cheeks are fixed, giving more stability and are recommended for horses who are unsure of the bit. Made from stainless steel, which is the most common material used for horse bits, it is durable, easy to clean, tasteless and does not rust. A great all-round bit suited to many horses.
