Dover Saddlery | Mikmar Cupreon Loose Ring Snaffle Bit with Ergom Lozenge .

Okay, here's the one I think I want to try. Is that metal legal for eventing and straight dressage? We're talking schooling shows, so it's not like anyone's even checking. Just want to make sure it's legal.

Check this out. It's a hybrid loose ring/egg butt. What do you all think of this?

I have no real input on this one. I've seen it in Dover in person and frankly didn't like the look much. I mean, it looks interesting (and I assume no pinching is a main reason for it), but just wasn't something I really liked. But then tastes differ. I hope someone who uses something similar will give an input!

To answer your question about the one-rein stop, I've never had a problem with it. As long as the bridle is fitted properly and the circumstances are somewhat normal you should be fine. The only time I've heard of a bit sliding through was with some sort of snaffle (I don't remember what kind) and during a double-up circle with a particularly difficult youngster, the bit slid through because there was no throat latch on the bridle. And it was a western bridle so there was no noseband either.

I have exactly this one (also from Dover) for my qh. She liked it the best.

MBP, can you borrow loose ring and eggbutt from someone in barn and try both of them in row for say 10-15 mins each? To see what your boy will like the best. I could tell right away my qh doesn't like loose rings when I tried them (just by her riding). I mean... I really afraid to suggest loose rings over eggbutt or vs verse without knowing the horse...
