The Eggbut gag stimulates the horse to bring its head up. It is often used with horses that run behind the bit and don’t follow the hand as much as necessary. The bit can be used with one or two reins or with pelham straps. In most cases, the bit is used with two reins, one is normally attached to the bit and the other rein to the end of the gag straps.
Sweet Iron rust when it comes in contact with moisture: the surface tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's natural saliva production. This causes the horse to foam and it improves its acceptance of the bite and helps the rider and horse for better contact. Oxidation changes the color of the Trust bite in "Sweet iron" from blue to more brownish-gray as the bite rusts. A "Sweet Iron" bit gets an orange-brown rust layer if the bit is not used for a period of time, this can be removed by wiping it off with a damp warm cloth.
