Cheltenham Gag: The running gag, also known as a Cheltenham gag when it has eggbutt rings, helps to lift the horse's head, and is often used on horses that tend to lean, go on the forehand or pull. The cheekpieces slide through the holes in the bit rings, moving the mouthpiece upwards against the corners of the mouth and lips, which gives a clear indication to the horse to lift his head. It also exerts pressure against the mouth to bring the horse's nose inwards. The loose rings help to keep the bit mobile in the horse's mouth.
This bit can be used with two reins - one attached to the bit ring and one attached to the rope - so the gag action only comes into play when it is required. The Nylon Running Gag Straps slides through the rings more quickly than the leather, giving a more immediate command. Can also be ridden with 2 sets of reins, first pair affixed to the eggbutt sides, second pair connected to the running gag straps.
