Need to promote a true consistent contact or have problems with lips rubbing? If your pony is inconsistent into the contact or a ‘head nodder’, the Neue Schule Pony Eggbutt offers the stability within the mouth needed to boost the pony’s confidence causing it to seek the bit taking the rein forwards. It is very beneficial for short tense necks, and also excellent for directional control. Unlike traditional Eggbutts, with the Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge mouthpiece, feel and response is not lost and the mouthpiece is so comfortable that the pony will not fix against the hand. This neat lightweight bit is popular as a snaffle under saddle or for showing in hand.

measure a bit:
A bit should fit your horse’s mouth so that the mouthpiece extends approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) beyond the horse’s lips on either side, but not so tight that the horse might be pinched by any movable cheek pieces. You also don’t want a great length of bit hanging out of the horse’s mouth. The different parts of the mouthpieces on bits are made to sit on specific areas of the mouth. So for the bit to be effective, the bit needs to contact those areas properly. You also don’t want the bit pulling through the horse’s mouth when you pull on a rein. Measure an old bit you know already fits. Use a tape measure to measure from the inside of each cheek piece or ring .Use a piece of string about 12” (30cm) long. Tie a knot about 2 inches (5cm) in. Put it through your horse’s mouth, with the knot against the lips on one side. Mark the opposite side with a marker or little piece of tape
