Snaffle Bit

My sister, Jean Lewis, is helping my parents move. So she's had an opportunity to rifle through my mail. She sent me this email:

"Trivia question:

In what type of catalogue, addressed to Andrew Bellware, would one find a:

  • JP Korsteel Full Cheek Eggbutt Snaffle Bit
  • and a Tom Thumb Jointed Rubber Pelham
  • and a Corkscrew Hunter Dee
  • and a Uxeter Kimberwicke

All on the same page?"
As it turns out, I get an equestrian catalog because we bought some riding boots for our lead android in a movie once. Those are apparently all names for bits.

But I'm shouting the words "Full Cheek Eggbutt Snaffle Bit" the next time I get mad at my computer, that's for sure.
