As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Korsteel French Mouth Eggbutt Snaffle is rated 4.7959 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking, gentle bit I have a dee ring single-jointed copper roller snaffle bit that I have used on my gelding since he was 4. He is very mouthy and reaches for that bit whenever I bring it out. He also has a hard time letting it go after a ride. He loves moving the rollers in his mouth. The first reason I decided to change is that he has been in the same bit for over 14 years and the copper is pitted and squeaky from his constant chewing. It gets pretty loud when he is waiting to jump in group lessons. The second reason, I decided it was time for a change is that we are working more on our flatwork and really coming on the bit. I was thinking of trying a loose ring but didn't want to shock him and thought the lateral help of the eggbutt was still there, albeit a little less than the dee ring he previously had. Can a horse come on the bit with the other bit, sure! I just really love the look of loose rings but don't was his lips getting pinched and those bit guards look nasty imo (though I really respect those who use them instead of letting their horse get pinched). So was the bit change super necessary? Probably not. However, my guy is laid back and does ok with change (as long as it's not to something that is very harsh/unfair). I think this bit looks good, is priced right (who the heck needs a $200 bit seriously-though those herm springer aurigan ones do look gorgeous) and since it is very gentle and sits on the tongue fairly flat, my horse seems to love it. He rounds better (though that could be training too) and takes the bit just as nicely as the last, which really surprised me since it does not have the sweet copper taste nor the rollers. Now his other bit it on my lamp stand as decoration (just in case he decides he doesn't like this bit anymore and reminds me of my boy even when I'm not at the barn!)... only a horse person would use that as decoration lol... my hubby thinks it's silly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bit! I recently started using this bit and love it. My horse hasn't had a bit in her mouth in years and this was the first bit I used. She responded surprisingly very well to this bit and showed no issues. I highly recommend this bit even to green horses (in my case) or any horse for that matter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice weight and quality Bought this for a green mare that didn't seem happy in a snaffle. She is much happier with the French link.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made As per my trainers suggestion I wanted to switch from a full cheek to an eggbutt so my TB wouldn't rely/ lean so heavily on the reins as aides but rather respond more to my legs. I was using a Dr. Bristol before but couldn't find one with eggbutts that was the proper size so I decided to give this French bit a try. I chose a less expensive brand since I wasn't sure whether or not the bit would work for my horse. First off, the package arrived in a very timely manner and just as promised. The items were packaged nicely and clearly labelled. The bit looks to be well made and of nice quality especially for the price. My horse took nicely to it and it fit his mouth perfectly. I have used it for a few weeks now, ride at least 4 times a week and the bit looks brand new without any signs of wear or discoloration. Most importantly it seems to accomplish the intended purpose nicely while at the same time being softer on his mouth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit for my OTTB!! I have tried multiple bits on my 5 year old off the track thoroughbred, and this is by far my favorite. I wanted something simple and mild but a tiny bit more than a single jointed snaffle. First ride in this and I loved it!
