This high-quality single jointed eggbutt bradoon is made of solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminium, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design of the bit follows the shape of the horse’s mouth, which allows for a gentle and even pressure distribution. The design, combined with the unique properties of Cuprigan, encourages the chewing process and saliva production, which allows for a pleasant connection with the sensitive horse’s mouth. The bit applies normal pressure on the mouth. Mouthpiece thickness 12 mm, ring size 50 mm.
The eggbutt snaffle has fixed cheek pieces. Aids have a more direct effect and the bit allows less freedom of movement compared to the loose ring snaffle.
A bradoon is usually used in combination with a Weymouth Curb bit. The small rings leave more space for the Weymouth Curb than regular loose ring snaffles. The bradoon should ideally be 0,5-1 centimeter larger than the Weymouth Curb.
The double jointed bit consists of three parts. The middle section of the mouthpiece lies flat on the tongue, this causes more pressure on the tongue than a single jointed bit. The thicker the middle section, the more pressure it will create on the tongue.
