    Default Bradoon - loose ring/EggButt, size of cheek ring?

    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?

    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
