Cheltenham Eggbutt Gag Bit
|NEWS: We have opened a Leathergoods Repair Service, so if you want us to help with any repair, just email firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally attaching a picture. We offer a free, no obligation quotation.|
Product Code: BI532Eggbutt 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.

Thanks very much for the fast delivery of my purse. Very pleased with both the purse, and the service - excellent. The purse is exactly what I wanted. You have the best selection of purses/ wallets that I've come across in my pusuit of 'the perfect purse', and I've been looking for ages, I was spoilt for choice in the end! Will definitely be recommending and using you again.

Your website and shop looks really wonderful and we hope to come back again. And the story of the shop's history lends a wonderful patina of tradition to the leather goods. Cheers.

Hat received safely this morning. Brilliant!! Thank you very much. Happy Christmas.
Mrs. Reynolds, Devon
I'm very pleased with the part order that arrived this morning and already have them up on the wall. Don't worry about the parts now - I've relooked at the broken ones and see what you mean about being fastened to the martingales. If I can't repair them myself I will some new ones from you as your prices are very reasonable. I'm pleased I found you by doing an internet search on horse brasses and accessories.
Anne A., Pembrokeshire
