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 light poll pressure.
The Pivot Low Port will lighten pressure on the tongue but not fully remove the pressure. This keeps the bar pressure softer. The single, tight joint allows for independent lateral aids while maintaining the profile of the mouthpiece in the mouth.
The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony.
It is well suited to horses with a short smile due to the straight profile. It will encourage those horses that are too light in the contact to take more contact.
