Shires Dr. Bristol Eggbutt Bit

Price: $29.99
Manufacturer: Shires
A Dr. Bristol must not be confused with a French link.  The difference is the central plate.  On a Dr. Bristol the plate is designed to sit at a differenct angle on the horse's longue, this makes it more severe.  Good for strong horses.

Available in sizes 4 1/2" to 6"

To measure your horse for a bit:
1) Gently pull the existing bit to one side of the horse's mouth so the ring sits flush against the horse's face.
2) Check that you can fit between one and two fingers between the horse's lips and the other ring - ideally there should be 1/2 inch there.
3) If this is OK, remove the bit and measure it between the two rings - then you have the size of your horse's bit.
