Eggbutt 2½ Ring Elliptical
Cheek Pieces: The Eggbutt cheek piece prevents pinching of the lips and gives a slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents the bit being pulled through the mouth. A Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece. The 2½ Ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
Mouth Pieces: The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge. It is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and taking control will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
