This single broken eggbutt has a plastic mouthpiece with a metal core and stainless steel rings. Thanks to the combination of flexible plastic and high-quality stainless steel, the bits are stable, yet very soft and friendly. The plastic has a hardness of 90A and is FDA approved. This means that the material is free of solvents, contains no plasticizers and is also non-toxic. The bits can be used for all horses and are ideal for young horses, horses with a sensitive mouth and horses that have difficulty accepting other materials. The bit has a very soft effect on the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 18 mm and the oval bit rings have a size of 70 x 45 mm.
An eggbutt has rings that cannot rotate freely, so aids have a more direct effect. This type of bit is generally well accepted because the mouthpiece lies relatively firmly in the mouth.
Maintenance of bits
It is wise to clean the bit after each use, this can be done under the tap or in a bucket of water. A bit of good and extensive cleaning is best with a little lukewarm / warm water and a soft cloth. After washing, dry the bit with a dry cloth. Cooking your bit once a month in a pan of water ensures an optimal clean result and is the most effective way to get the bit clean.
- Never use soap and / or detergents in connection with allergic reactions when washing
- If the bit is very dirty, let it soak in hot water for a while
