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'!).

Herm Sprenger KK Ultra bits are adapted to the anatomy of the horse's mouth.
• no pressure put on the palate
• clear instructions given as the tongue's sense of touch is utilized
• made from the approved metal for horses, Aurigan

KK Ultra Bits were developed after extensive research at the Veterinary University in Hanover, Germany. The results revealed some new findings: the interior volume of the mouth was less than previously thought and the palate was smaller and flatter. Therefore, the space left for a bit is quite limited. KK Ultra bits take advantage the research and of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue by shortening the link and turning the link 45 degrees. These two changes caused the link to rest fully on the tongue without squeezing or pinching it. With the link resting fully on the tongue the sense of touch is utilized and clear instructions can be passed through the reins.

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 KK Ultra Aurigan D-Ring is offered in mouth sizes 5", 5 1/4", 5 3/4" or 6 1/8". 15mm Aurigan mouth. 75mm stainless steel rings.

    Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan D-Ring is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price, great quality. This bit is just gorgeous. My horse took to it right away, she loves it. It is a little thinner than the picture makes it look, but my horse doesn't seem put off by that at all. It did get a few small scratches within the first few days from chewing, but they are hardly noticeable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Bit I bought this bit for my thoroughbred mare who has a sensitive, narrow mouth. I had previously been using a happy mouth bit with good success but it didn't have enough feel when she was distracted. With this bit she seems very comfortable with a little more feel. The quality is outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a beautiful bit This is the second Herm Sprenger bit that I have purchased (!st was a loose ring). Once again, I am very happy with this bit. I dont mind paying the extra for a quality product. Plus, anything that keeps my horse happy and comfortable is priceless in my eyes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only bit I ever use when ever I'm in the market for a new type of bit I always go for KK ultras. The different metal really does make a difference. One of the ladies at the barn went away and I rode her horse for her, and I use my bit, her horse who hardly ever gets those latte lips was drooling like crazy. His mouth was softer and when his owner came home she immediately purchased one of these for her boy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice! Perfect weight and width! Just got this in the mail yesterday! (But I know its durable because my trainer has let me borrow her loose ring that's like 10 years old for the past two weeks- it still looks new!!!) My new pony (almost 18 H) Oldenburg loves this bit!! he wont let go of it! He responds so well due to its weight and diameter! An amazing bit that's worth the high price. Will definitely improve your horses performance and the golden-silver mixture looks super classy for the hunter show ring. Thanks SmartPack for another quality product! Also even though its a heavy bit don't worry about your horse getting jitters from a cold metal! the kk helps it warmup in seconds! ITS AWESOME!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit :) My horse is very sensitive, and I am also learning how to use less contact when riding her. This bit is working out perfectly - she opens her mouth easily when putting it on, plus she seems to be easier to handle. I recommend this bit, plus I recommend the bit wipes below for cleaning after use :)
