The eggbutt is a common multi-discipline style of cheek piece for snaffle bits. The eggbutt snaffle minimizes two problems that can arise with its cousin, the loose ring snaffle, whose rings can pinch the edges of the horse's mouth, and which doesn't provide much lateral stabilization.
Yes, it is entirely possible to train a horse to be ridden without a bit right from the early days of its training. In fact, it's possible to train a horse to be ridden without any sort of bit or headstall on its head at all.
Bits May Inflict Pain Most riders agree that bits can cause pain to horses. A too-severe bit in the wrong hands, or even a soft one in rough or inexperienced hands, is a well-known cause of rubs, cuts and soreness in a horse's mouth. Dr. Cook's research suggests the damage may go even deeper — to the bone and beyond.
When the bit is in, it's work time....not control time. You start using it for control too young, I find their mouths horrible come riding time as a 3/4 year old. Work on softening work inhand and get him yielding. You don't need a bit for a youngster just for manners on the ground.
A: It sounds as if your horse is trying to tell you something. Constant bit chewing is often a sign of nervousness, particularly in younger horses, or discomfort. ... If your horse is young, his bit chewing may result from immaturity or unfamiliarity with the bit.
A shanked bit is considered a curb bit regardless of whether it has a solid or jointed mouthpiece. The reins are attached to the rings. Snaffles work on direct pressure to the sides of the mouth (directly pulling the head around). ... The longer the shanks the more pressure is applied.
Horses should not be eating when wearing a bridle (referring to the bridle as the complete apparatus which it consists of—headstall, bit, reins, and depending on the bit, possibly a chinstrap and/or cavesson). The bridle should be removed prior to allowing the horse to eat.
On a snaffle, a chin strap will be very effective in keeping the bit from pulling all the way through the horse's mouth when using one rein. It need not be adjusted tight and is normally placed between the reins and bit. The one exception to the need for a chin strap is with the full cheek snaffle.
Another thing lunging is great for is building muscle and helping to improve your horse's natural balance. By working consistently on a circle your horse has you balance themselves on the circle and use their muscles to do this. This will slowly encourage the horse to use build muscle tone.
