B14_EE Bombers Elliptical Eggbutt 14mm
The Eggbutt cheekpiece prevents pinching of the lips and give a
slightly more solid feel against the side of the face. It also prevents
the bit being pulled through the mouth. The release is slower and also
introduces some poll pressure.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge,
it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller
surface area. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of
pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and
tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
