Eggbutt 2½ Ring
The Eggbutt cheek piece prevents pinching of the lips and gives a solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower than the loose ring and also introduces poll pressure.
A ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well as creating leverage on the mouthpiece, the 2½ Ring version is the softest out of the 3 or 4 ring alternatives as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
Available in horse and pony size.
The Eggbutt has a quicker application of pressure than a loose type cheekpiece and a slower release of pressure.
Reins can be attached at:
A – reduces poll pressure softening the mouthpiece leverage.
B – increases poll pressure leveraging the mouthpiece.
