View Full Version : Bradoon - loose ring/EggButt, size of cheek ring?

May. 19, 2011, 03:00 PM
Umm I'm trying to order a Myler Comfort bradoon bit, that is basically a Myler Comfort Snaffle, but with a bradoon size cheek piece, and the very first question this lady asked got me stumped...

She asked the size of the cheek piece I needed for the bradoon. Well I know it's smaller than the ones used for snaffle but what size should I get?:confused:

Also, most bradoons I've seen use loose ring. My boy goes with either eggbut or D ring today in his snaffle. Any reason to change to loose ring?

What is the reason people use loose ring instead of, say, eggbutt or D ring?

The normal standard is to use a loose ring with a sliding cheek weymouth, or a fixed ring with a solid curb.

However in reality anything goes :)
