Product Code: BI532

Eggbutt 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.
