From everything I read eggbutt and D-ring are more gentle then loose ring.
One of the possible problems with the loose ring is it can pinch, but I've heard different opinions on that.
The problem I run into my qh hates when the ring start to move. She likes everything to be stable. On other side my paint preferred loose ring to the eggbutt. Bit is something you never know what will be the best for the horse.
