Cheltenham Eggbutt Gag Bit
cheltenham eggbutt gag bit biEggbutt cheek bits stop the pinching which can be associated with loose ring bits. These bits are good for novice riders or horses that are fussy in their mouths, as the cheek reduces any subtle movements felt from the rein. Gag bits work by raising the bit in the horses mouth by using the roof and upper bars, this in turn raises the horses head. Such bits are used in conjunction with rope or leather gag cheeks. These cheeks are rolled, so that the bit can slide freely up and down. The bars are the areas of gum on the upper and lower jaws, between the front and back teeth, where the bit sits. These days it is considered inhumane to use the roof of the mouth, as it has little flesh to protect it and so it is not often used. Gag bits should be used on two reins, so that the snaffle action can be used for the most part and the correctional gag rein only when necessary to raise the horse's head. This Cheltenham Eggbutt Gag bit is available in four sizes, make your selection from the pull down menu. Established in the late eighteenth century (1700s) the Eldonian brand is one of the original and most respected names in riding hardware throughout the equestrian world. Eldonian is owned and marketed by Jeffries, under whose supervision only the finest stainless steel is used, to manufacture bits in a carefully-controlled engineering environment. This ensures that Eldonian stainless steel hardware meets the exacting standards of quality, strength, reliability and safety demanded by today's discerning riders.

Balding Gag Bit
balding gag bit biLoose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits. Gag bits work by raising the bit in the horses mouth by using the roof and upper bars, this in turn raises the horses head. Such bits are used in conjunction with rope or leather gag cheeks. These cheeks are rolled, so that the bit can slide freely up and down. The bars are the areas of gum on the upper and lower jaws, between the front and back teeth, where the bit sits. These days it is considered inhumane to use the roof of the mouth, as it has little flesh to protect it and so it is not often used. Gag bits should be used on two reins, so that the snaffle action can be used for the most part and the correctional gag rein only when necessary to raise the horse's head. This Balding Gag bit is available in two sizes, make your selection from the pull down menu. Sizing Loose Ring Bits - there should be a 1/4" gap each side of the horse's face. Loose ring bit which are too narrow can nip the horse's lips because the cheek slides through the hole in the mouthpiece and the lips can be pulled into the gap. Please take care to get the sizing right, as we cannot take back used horse bits. How to correctly adjust the height of your new bit. It is best to do most of the adjustment before putting the bridle on the horse so, put the bit onto the bridle then hold it up to the side of the horse's face. Then put the top of the headpiece level with the top of the horse's head (poll) and the mouthpiece of the bit level with the corner of the mouth. Next adjust the bridle to fit. The cheekpieces should be adjusted, so that the bit lies in the correct position in the horse's mouth, i.e. leaving a little wrinkle at each corner of the mouth. Do not fit the bit to high, so that the horse appears to be grinning. Do not fit the bit too low, so that the bit hits the horse's teeth. Established in the late eighteenth century (1700s) the Eldonian brand is one of the original and most respected names in riding hardware throughout the equestrian world. Eldonian is owned and marketed by Jeffries, under whose supervision only the finest stainless steel is used, to manufacture bits in a carefully-controlled engineering environment.

Thanks Paul - I will sure share your business/website amongst friends..

Faisal M., London
Hi Paul, Thank you so much for your email and to let you know that we received the goods today - thank you so much - a wonderful present for my great neice’s 18th birthday. Thank you and your team for your help and we shall certainly register with you - I do like to deal with family businesses - I am in one myself. Thank you again. Regards

Briget H., Colchester
Thank you, order received this morning.

It was ordered as a replacement for one of an old pair whose centre strap had broken. The remaining old one now looks really old and decrepit alongside the bright new one. So much so that I am retiring it and have ordered another replacement for it.

Tony T., Lancashire
Received licence holder this morning, and am very pleased. Will book mark your page for future purchases (I can see myself buying a few of these for presents). Thanks again.

Sarah J., London
Hi Paul, Just thought I'd let yous know I'm very happy with my order which arrived safely on Thursday. Thank you.

Brian M., Newcastle
Thank you for supplying my latest order, of two waist belts, which arrived this morning. The Brady belts are clearly of the highest quality & craftsmanship & I look forward to wearing them for many years to come. Thanks also for your excellent customer service.


Timothy, Alnwick
Just to say thank you for the above,
which arrived this morning as promised.
Excellent service. Thanks again.

Patricia T., Wallsend
Paul & Sara, Thanks for the notification. The bag arrived this morning. Very prompt service & a great product. Thanks again,

David P., Warwick
Thank you for the strap -it is brilliant - the colour is as near as one could get. Great product and wonderful service. Best wishes.


Mary H., Newcastle-under-Lyme
Thanks for your prompt response to my order. I've purchased these products because I couldn't find them anywhere else in the UK and your range, product description and associated accessories offer excellent choice. I'm conscious this isn't a particularly valuable order, however it is for my favourite and extremely well travelled Tripp compact roll bag which picked up a stone during a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur which basically broke one of the wheels completely. Thanks again for your prompt service and I'll definitely keep your business in mind.
