The Eggbutt Snaffle from the Zilco range is probably the most widely used snaffle bit. The name comes from the somewhat egg-shaped connection between the mouthpiece and the bit rings.
The main benefit of the eggbutt shape is that the chance of the lip being pinched between the mouthpiece and bit ring is lessened. As you can see, the mouthpiece itself widens out at the sides, and the join between the mouthpiece and the ring is distanced from the horse's lips.
The cheek pieces can be helpful in refining the turning aids and for preventing the bit from being pulled through the mouth.
15mm thick mouthpiece and 165mm cheek length
