Eggbutt Snaffle Cyprium w/Flat Link
Cyprium steel is an alloy comprised of 90% copper and 10% stainless steel. Alloy’s of copper and stainless steel give a sweet taste in the mouth of the horse. The saliva production is stimulated by the taste and the horse accepts the bit easier. The larger the proportion of copper, the more flavor and softer the bit. The flat curve link of this bit is similar to a French link, offering a softer feel than a traditional nutcracker-type snaffle. Smooth hand polished eggbutt cheeks make this bit versatile in many disciplines.
For comparison, Aurigan from Herm Sprenger is an alloy with only 80% copper and 20% stainless steel.
