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 4.7895 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great soft bit! My gelding loves this bit, perhaps a little too much! He will snatch it out of my hand if I'm holding the bridle. He really moves out in this bit and loves toying with the french link (again, maybe too much!).All-in-all, great quality. It was larger than expected but fit just fine. I only docked a star because the bit squeaks (although I would bet my boy plays with it a lot more than another horse would).I think this is an excellent basic, soft, quality bit for any horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bit! Very nice bit for the price. My gelding is very picky about what goes in his mouth, but he's never had issues with this bit. I use this for my everyday schooling bit on my western bridle, and it does a good job of getting my horse supple and responsive without all the bite a curb brings. It's actually quite heavy, which I like because it seems that my horse gets a better feel of my cues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit Not sure if there's much variation in quality for bits but this one is just fine. My horse is much happier in this style of bit that the broken mouth loose ring snaffle we were using. I've only been using it a few months but so far I have no complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit at a good price I've used French snaffles on all my horses for years and all have gone well in them. The Korsteel bits are reasonably priced and last forever. This one is a replacement for one I've misplaced.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit is Good Value for Money but I purchased this bit for my tender mouthed QH. The bit is very well made but a tad heavy. I returned it for a lighter, 16mm bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great baby bit I went to this bit after breaking my WB and he started fussing with any type of standard snaffle bit. The key makes him happy and he hasn't fussed at all. Not harsh but he has brakes and so far no squeaks from the eggbutt portion. This is a very good all around bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase This bit is very gentle. My horse responds very well now. I would recommend this bit to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First bit I bought, still using today! This bit has been an excellent value. It's soft and comfortable for my horse, and I like the feel and know it's never sharp in her mouth. Always cleans up great, never squeaky or dull colored. No signs of wear after several years of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse looks forward to being bitted! This is the second Korsteel French Eggbutt bit I've purchased. It's for his new Plymouth Elite Dressage Bridle. It's the only bit he's ever worn since he began training. When I unbridle him he holds onto the link and plays with it before turning loose the bit! He thinks it's great and so do I.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I purchased this bit for my sensative TB who needed a change. So far he is doing much better and seems softer and happier in this bit. Good quality and is a great purchase for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Before this bit my gelding was resistant to the bit and I had a hard time getting him to soften and relax. I switched him over to this bit and I'm getting flexion at the poll, his mouth is quiet and he is salivating nicely. Absolutly wonderful bit. I would definatley recommend this for any horse with a soft mouth!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I switched my horse from a regular single joint snaffle to the french mouth and he responds even better. The Korsteel is great quality for a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bit Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. A good price for a good bit. It looks and feels very nice. Seems to run true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I decided to try this bit on my 15yr old Tb who really fights the D-ring snaffle that I rode him in. I would also have a hard time putting the bridle on bc he just didn't want the bit in. From first time I tried the eggbutt frenchlink he began fighting the bit less and is more pleasant to ride. He also lets me put the bit in with no problem. I really like this bit and will purchase another one in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality, Good Price This bit has a good ergonomic shape, a good weight, and comes at a very reasonable price-well worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bit Great for schooling horses that don't need much bit in their mouth. Cleans easy and still looks new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit I bought this bit for my Morab, Tuff. He would shake his head and not give to pressure in the other snaffle I was using on him. This bit has helped him so much! He goes super well in it, and it never causes him pain like his other one did. A great bit, especially for smaller mouthed horses like my Tuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I have been toying with bits on my fussy half arab pony mare for awhile. I knew I wanted a 3 piece eggbutt and so I decided to try this one out first... and well this is the only bit I will use for now on. The head tossing and jerking has reduced by 80% within the first ride. Very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Korsteel French Mouth Eggbutt Bit was just what I needed, both of my horses hate traditional snaffles, but they do very good in these. I've used this one less than a month, but have another one just like it that I have been sharing between the two horses and that got old real quick so purchased a second.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy! This bit is true to size, built well and is great for keeping them soft and quiet. Quality exceeds price! An excellent buy =)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Bit Purchased this to start riding english. My horse loves it. Very well made and a good weight. I like the fact that it does not hit the roof of your horses mouth as a snaffle can do. Good all around bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit! I have a 3yo TB in training. He loves this bit and his mouth stays more quiet and soft then his previous rubber snaffle. It fits his mouth nicely and does not take up a lot of room. I also like that it does not have the "nutcracker" action of a regular snaffle and this bit lays on his tongue well.The only issue I have is the bit seems a little long (as in length wise). I ordered a 5" and received a size five (it is marked 5" on the bit) but the bit is more like 5 1/4". He is kind of mouthy so will probably put a drop noseband on him. I am hoping that will help keep the bit in place better and the length will not be as much an issue. Otherwise I highly recommend this bit for working with a young horse.
