No size up, the same size as if I'd order eggbutt (I believe she goes in 5").

Let me check for the pics (if I find any with the head close enough :) ).

OK. Here we go... They ARE big, but not horribly big (or may be I'm used to them already ). And they definitely don't bother her.

Thanks for the picture! I wonder why they made them so big? Oh well, it still looks nice on your horse!

I ride my horse in a 2-Type KK Ultra. I originally rode him in a borrowed regular KK Ultra knock-off, but the rings were pinching him. The 2-Type is a loose ring with "built in" bit guards that make it look like a combination of loose ring and eggbutt.

I also like the Myler comfort snaffles. I borrowed a level 1 and a level 2 from my trainer out of curiosity and think my horse went a little better in the level 2 than he does in his 2-Type, but not enough to buy another pricey bit

I like the curbed kimberwicke.

I love the Myler comfort, I have 2 snaffles and a pelham here, but to be honest I think I like them more than my horses do, one frankly HATED the snaffle, darn horses, all so individual.

I like the Sprenger loose rings. I've never had a problem with them pinching like I have had with cheaper versions. :)

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

I think mainly because of that "eggbutt" piece (to protect the corners).
