Product Code: BI518American Dee Snaffles may look very different with their odd shaped cheek but they work in pretty much the same way as other snaffle bits. The dee shaped cheek, was developed in America, for the same reasons as the eggbutt
was invented in England i.e. to prevent the pinching and rubbing caused by badly finished or ill-fitting loose ring bits.
The main difference the Dee cheek gives, is slight directional assistance, making use of the face of the horse, similar to that of the full cheek snaffle. The size of the dee also means it cannot be pulled through the horse's mouth.
This dee bit incorporates copper rollers to improve acceptance by the horse and is available in three sizes only. Make your selection from the pull down menu.
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. This ensures that Eldonian stainless steel hardware meets the exacting standards of quality, strength, reliability and safety demanded by today's discerning riders.

Your Shopping Bag
Customers SayDear Sara,
Just a line to say the martingales arrived safely. I was very pleased that the quality is a lot better than the photos would have me believe. Not only is the leather very stout, the buckle and dee are solid brass throughout. It is unlikely I will ever need such an item again, as they are to stay indoors, replacing some disintegrated leather parts from my dad's workhorse tackle.
Nevertheless, I wish you all the best in your business.

Hi Paul, I just picked up my weekend bag at my local post office here in Sweden. I'm very satisfied with the bag so far. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Good communication in forms of order acknowledge and despatched status, fast delivery and reasonable prices. Just wanted to write and say I have had a great experience.

Thanks a lot. I'm really impressed. I was shopping christmas presents the other day and ordered both from Danish web shops and your shop in UK. I was surprised that I received the package from you earlier than the Danish shops. And the boots for my daughter are just perfect. Thanks again :) Regards Anette

Hello Sara and Paul, I received the wheel and axis pin some time ago and replaced it in the meantime, fits perfectly. Great service you provide and I think it is very nice you combine a web shop with a personal touch. Will most certainly recomend you if somebody needs parts.

Just wanted to let you know that my jacket arrived today. It's just as I hoped and fits like a glove. I'm now prepared for the Canberra winter!
David P., Australia
Just a quick note to let you know that I received the jacket today, and it's as nice as I had hoped. It will be perfect for walking (or shovelling snow) in cold and damp weather. Thanks again for all your attention and efforts.

Hi Sara, I had a look at the bag last night and it's great!
I have a visit to Germany coming up soon for a long weekend so it will be the perfect bag for that. Thank you again for your excellent service and I will register with your website today. Have a nice weekend.
