Informed Designs Harmony Eggbutt Snaffle 12mm



The Harmony mouthpiece actively encourages a horse to move towards and push his tongue forward to the contact .As the reins are used together the whole mouthpiece wraps around the tongue and lower jaw, taking in the whole of the tongue the sides of the lips and the sides of the bars and the sides of the lips in a perfect hoop. As the Round Lozenge is the correct length and the joints are neat and non invasive the Horse should move forward into the contact. Both branches of the bit are curved forward to go with the shape of the Horses tongue and roof of the mouth unlike some Lozenge Snaffles that really pinch the Horses lower jaw . Good young Horse starter Bit.

Very useful for Horses or Ponies that are uncomfortable with
• A large joint or joints
• Large long plates or lozenges
• That block on one side as you flex or turn
• or are very busy in the mouth
• or do not draw the contact forward 

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.

Customer Reviews

Average customer rating:

I've used this bit for just over a year now on my very busy mare - she is quite happy in the mouth with it, and I definitely have more control when we go cross country jumping. I'm really pleased with this bit it has certainly helped us.
