We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Genuine patented Aurigan bits are manufactured only by Herm Sprenger. Aurigan is a perfect mixture of materials (85% copper, 4% silicon and 11% zinc). Aurigan has high oxidation properties and provides a pleasant taste to encourage chewing activity and easy acceptance of the bit.

The Herm Sprenger HO Aurigan Weymouth features a smooth and rounded port that is angled forwards with a slanting mouthpiece.  It provides even distribution of tongue pressure due to the angled and slanting mouthpiece.  This bit takes advantage of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue

The Herm Sprenger HO Aurigan Weymouth is offered in mouth sizes 5", 5 1/4" or 5 3/4". 16mm Aurigan mouth. 13.5cm stainless steel shanks with 5cm lower shank measurement.

    Herm Sprenger HO Aurigan Weymouth is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light in weight, quality product I bought this after test riding using one belonging to a friend. It is a relatively mild bit, with shorter shanks and gentle port. The trainer selected it in part because it was lighter weight than the gentle port Weymouth I already had. I already have numerous Herm Sprenger bits, and trust their quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bit! The mouthpiece is super comfortable for him. Until I saw it, I didn't understand the need for the special curb chain but now that I have it, it seems like a brilliant idea. In order to lie flat, the curb twists in one direction on the right hand side and the opposite direction on the left side, as opposed to standard curb chains which twist the same direction the whole length so will always cause the shanks to deviate slightly right, which makes the action of the mouthpiece slightly uneven. Having had fully Aurigan and fully German silver HS curb bits before, I love having the Aurigan mouthpiece with the stainless steel shanks. I like that he has the yummy metal on the mouth part but I don't like the look of gold-colored Aurigan shanks on the outside. Plus, both the Aurigan & German silver are much harder to keep looking nice- they require way more diligence in polishing than stainless steel. I do have to say I also tried this exact bit in 14 mm thickness (from another source) & my horse didn't like it- he only liked the 16mm which is the one available from SmartPak. HS bits are ridiculously expensive so I looked into buying this bit in Europe, but I didn't find it significantly cheaper on any of the European sites I normally buy from, so I stuck with SmartPak. Their customer service is the best!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
