French link eggbutt snaffle, made from stainless steel using the investment cast, lost wax method for the highest quality finish. The french link is often confused with the Dr Bristol as both have a plate in the middle, but the french link snaffle is at the mild end of the bitting spectrum. The centre plate in a french link eggbutt is shaped and lies flat on the horses tongue causing little to no pressure when in use. The double jointed mouthpiece eases pressure on the bars of the horses mouth and prevents palate pressure, making the french link one of the best bits for novice horses and riders. The french link is especially good for horses with a large tongue, low palette mouth conformation as the bit is fairly unobtrusive in the horses mouth. The eggbutt cheek is a god cheek for novice riders or fussy mouthed horses as it limits the amount of fine vibration passed to the horse down the reins.
