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 Segundo is a three piece broken bit, with the middle component representing a port angled at 45 degrees, which alleviates tongue pressure while keeping an even pressure on the bars, encouraging the horse to stay light to the contact. Horses find it difficult to lean on this mouthpiece or put their tongue over the bit.
The cheekpiece is available in 2 sizes, standard and a slightly smaller model for a pony.
The Segundo port is scaled according to the width, to ensures accurate fitting over the bars
