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.

70mm stainless steel rings. 16mm thickness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but completely worth it! I bought this bit about 8 months ago, and I love it! I ride a horse that is not willing to connect to the bit, but he loves his loose ring now! You definitely need to clean them with the HS metal cleaner, though. Overall, this is a great product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, But Worth It These bits last forever if you take care of them, and the comfort of the horse is so, so important. The way these bits are designed makes them worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bit These are the best, I have used this bit on many horses and it works wonderfully on pretty much all of them unless they simply don't like loose ring bits.While it costs a pretty penny it is worth it, my horse liked to ignore me at times when using other bits the same diameter, and was also loose ring. But with this one he doesn't ignore me and takes it into his mouth without issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful but $$$ Very Expensive, not sure why, but my sensitive horse relaxes and goes softly in it. One of those items that we ignore the price to buy to treat our horses well.
