Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Eggbutt Snaffle
Highly recommended for horses that require an improvement of the contact with the bit. Eggbutts are suitable for horses with sensitive mouth corners as they prevent them from being pinched. As the rings are fixed to the mouthpiece they keep the bit steady in the mouth. They also prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth, enabling the KK ULTRA mouthpiece to direct gentle pressure onto the central point of the tongue.
KK ULTRA – Compared to conventional bits, the double jointed KK ULTRAs have a middle link – also known as the bean – that is shortened and angled forward by 45°.
Only with this angle the middle link lies gently on the tongue resulting in even and constant contact to allow clear instructions through the reins.
The innovative KK ULTRA bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitivity of the horse‘s tongue which multiplies the perceptions from signals given by the bit. When the reins are pulled the middle part of the KK ULTRA fully rests on the tongue without squeezing and the connection rings roll on the tongue. The tongue’s sense of touch is utilized and clear instructions can be given.
The KK ULTRA bits provide an incomparable precise contact between rider and horse. A huge improvement can normally be seen immediately when switching to a KK ULTRA bit.
The anatomically adapted mouthpiece is very comfortable for the horse as the rider can give softer instructions and the horse’s suppleness is supported harmoniously.
