Pony Doubler Eggbutt Bradoon
The Doubler mouthpiece instead of having large wide joints that do not fit well between the top of the Horses tongue and the roof of the mouth this bit has small ball bearings and a very small barrel. As the reins are used together the whole mouthpiece is pulled around the tongue and lower jaw, the mouthpiece has a structured feel in the centre of the tongue to dissuade leaning on the bit. Looks really neat and small on a pony face
Very useful for Ponies that need to
· Pay more heed to the mouthpiece
· Are a little strong and too forward into the bit
· That block on one side as you flex or turn
· That are a little heavy in the hands
The Eggbutt cheek means that the mouthpiece is solidly attached to the cheek piece which has the advantage of firstly making sure that the corners of the lips of the Horse are always comfortable as there is no gap between the cheek and the mouthpiece. Also because of this solid fixing the action is well defined as you apply rein pressure the signal to the Horse is quicker and therefore very clear. You gain stability and a certain amount of directional support. As your Horse progresses through its training perhaps having quicker slicker signals is an advantage to the work you are doing.
