Hey there! I hate to start another bit thread, but I couldn’t find anything on here about this.
I have a very fussy mare, and I have ridden her in a regular jointed snaffle for the longest time. My trainer felt that she might like the stability of an eggbutt and since she plays around with the bit a lot in her mouth, we thought we would try something jointed.
I found an eggbutt snaffle with the French link, and she seems to really like it. It quieted her down quite a bit. However, my concern is that this bit might not be legal for showing.
I could find where eggbutt bits with the thick lozenge was legal, but nothing about a French link with the eggbutt rings. I checked the USEF website and nothing was listed.
Thanks for any help. I have another jointed snaffle with the lozenge that I’m going to try on her next week to see if we get the same result, and if so, I will ride her in that to avoid question.
Thanks a bunch!
