The Korsteel Stainless Steel Jointed Eggbutt Bradoon Snaffle Bit is often seen with either a fixed or sliding cheek weymouth, the nutcracker action acts on the bars and sometimes the palate and works well for horses that prefer a single jointed snaffle bit.
Bradoons are also very useful to use as snaffle bits for smaller heads or ponies, as they are basically a snaffle bit with a smaller ring.
Eggbutt bradoons are attached to the sliphead of the weymouth bridle, and fit in the corners of the horses mouth with the weymouth below.
Generally the jointed bradoon should be 1/4" or 1/2" bigger than the weymouth/ normal bit size. If the eggbutt jointed bradoon is to be used as a snaffle on its own, the normal bit size should be purchased.
- Standard nutcracker action
- Can be used in dressage competitions when used as a snaffle, or in the double where permitted
- Also ideal to use as a snaffle for ponies as the ring is smaller than a traditional loose ring snaffle
- Bit strength: fairly mild
