Dr Bristol Eggbutt Snaffle


Eggbutt Dr Bristol snaffle, made from stainless steel using the investment cast, lost wax method for the highest quality finish. The Dr bristol is often confused with the french link as both have a plate in the middle, but the Bristol snaffle is at the more severe end of the bitting spectrum. The centre plate in a Dr bristol eggbutt is angled and flat edged, causing it to dig into the horses tongue when a strong contact it taken. It is can be useful for strong horses or those that pull as tongue pressure is preferable to a bit that uses excessive bar pressure, the tongue cannot be deadened in the same way that a horses mouth bars can be over time.

Dr Bristol Eggbutt Snaffle features:
  • Works primarily on the tongue with a sharp action due to the straight edged angled plate, and to a lesser degree on the bars.
  • A strong bit not recommended for novice riders, but can be very useful on strong horses and those that lean
  • Bit strength: Strong
