      This bit has helped my horse to be more sensitive and responsive to my hands. She is leaning a lit less on the bridle and softens more readily to my hands.

      Eggbutt Snaffle

          Comments about FES Eggbutt Copper Slow Twist:

          I use this bit for trail riding and show jumping on a "hot horse". Any bit with a shank for trails seemed to aggravate him. A simple loose ring snaffle was not controlling his hot tendencies, so I turned to this egg butt snaffle with the copper mouth and slow wire twist. My horse had responded well to some copper mouth pieces in the past. For him, this has been a great compromise. He really enjoys the copper, I am very happy to have him in a snaffle bit, and I have a little added control with the slow wire twist. The product so far seems to be durable and a nice bit to have around the barn. I have already recommended this bit to several friends with similar horses to my gelding.

                    My horse loves this bit! Just enough of a bit to get her attention, but not too much bite. The copper encourges her to chew keeping her nice and soft in the mouth

                    What bits are made of...

                    If you have any questions about this product or a type of bit, please contact us at 1-800-365-1311 or service@sstack.com
                    Stainless Steel

                    Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

                    Copper

                    Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

                    Sweet Iron

                    Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

                    Rubber

                    Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

                    Aluminum

                    Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

                    Plastic

                    Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

                    Nickel Silver

                    Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
