Shimmer Engraved Eggbutt Bit
English Bridle Accessories

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: JP Korsteel
Model: Shimmer Engraved Eggbutt Bit
Category: English Bridle Accessories

Purchase: I bought this bit from Smartpak Equine for $35.95. I love "bling" and when I saw this item in the SmartPak catalog I thought it was just tasteful enough, and I had to have it.

Likes: Pretty for the price and a nice idea but...

Dislikes: When I received it, I was disappointed in that it somehow seems prettier in the catalog photo. Also, the way the engraving is done does not properly center the design on the sides of the eggbutt. So when it is on the bridle and in the horses' mouth, the design will be turned in such a way that it is always partially hidden from view. I took a second look at the position of the bit in the catalog photo to best show the full design and noticed the photography compensated for this problem, so I am guessing this is how all the bits are made, not just the one I received. How disappointing.

Quality: It is a good quality stainless steel bit. The engraving and stones are subtle for a little flash without being over the top. Too bad the design and the function were not compatible.

Summary: If it had been a gift from someone else, I might have kept it and used it anyway, but as an item to buy for myself, I'm returning it. It will bother me that the design is not nicely visible. Nice item, nice idea, so I give it a "3" but hopefully they fix this problem.
