The John Patterson Eggbutt Snaffle is a popular, gently shaped bit with comfortable bars. This reduces pressure on the corners of the mouth and also has all the advantages and features found in John Patterson (JP) bits. JP bits have a curved shape that eliminates the interference that conventional bits can cause. All JP bits feature curved bars that prevent the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and eliminate the nutcracker-like action that can pinch a horse's tongue. Available in sizes 4 1/2 inches, with 2 3/4 inch rings.
