This innovation is brilliant in helping to achieve a comfortable and quiet mouth. Turtle Top with Flex keeps the mouthpiece centred and arched over the tongue at all times, encouraging relaxation. This comfortable mouthpiece is also useful in re-focusing the inattentive mouth back onto the rein aids in order to achieve a soft consistent contact. It’s also good for training / dressage as it gives the rider greater shoulder control on a circle and helps set up the bend when changing the rein or with lateral work. The stability the Eggbutt offers along with the clever design of mouthpiece often proves useful when working towards a consistent more even contact. Often recommended for horses with a short tense neck.
