How do I select the right set of teeth for my horse?
In case of any doubts, please consult an expert coach who will inform you about the needs of your horse. You have to make a decision about what you want to do with your horse before you select your teeth, then you have enough information to select the right one:
Depending on the task. The Eggbutt Bridle is a fixened cheese bridle - the cheeks are firmly connected to the nose piece, which cannot move or turn on the ring. That means that the tip is very quiet and calm in the palate. So if the horse has restless or jumping palms (e.g. a beginner or child), this bit will help the horse by not transferring quite as many of these irregularities and sway.
Whom would an eggbut cheek not fit? An egg butt would not fit you, because it is simpler for the horse to rest or grip the teeth, and more difficult for the horse to use and give a little bit of slackness. There is more clearance and refinement to the rider's helpers with the ring loosely, as very subtle moves are transferred to the horse when the ring shifts with the variation of the pull.
Whom would a loser ring not fit? Its legs are vertically extending above and below the nozzle and are connected at the top and bottom by a D-shaped ring on swivels. Whom would a Dee Ring not fit? Like the bridle pliers, the firm positioning of the cheek and nose piece makes this bit less flexible in the horse's jaws, for better or for bad.
Usually the permanent post is a disadvantage in events where high sensibility is needed, e.g. in training. The D-ring at the top and bottom of these shafts means that the pivot point is slightly further away from the tip than with an egg sting horse, which makes it less flexible and somewhat harder due to a light lever effect, dependent on the angles of the forces used. This is not perfect for a horseman with restless arms.
A small ring attached to a pivot hinge on the nose piece and two branches that extend above and below the nose piece are the primary purposes of this set of teeth to apply side (lateral) force to the horse's jaw. If one side of the chisel is drawn, as when turning, the other side pushes against a wide section of the lip and cheek to support the help.
Whom wouldn't a Full Cheech fit? The greatest risk with full cheeks is that of the long arm itself. They can get entangled with the horse's bridles, legs, nostrils as well as the horse's mouth and mouth. Use a full cheeks always with a strap on the bridles that hangs over one of the legs and will help keep them in a firm grip.
