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 Loose Ring is offered in mouth sizes 4 3/4", 5 1/8", 5 1/2", 6". 70mm stainless steel rings. 21mm thickness.

    Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Loose Ring - 21mm is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Although it is on the expensive side, this bit gives a great feel. I have a saddlebred with a very narrow nose and the 21mm is not too thick. It is fairly mild but at the same time makes my horse feel very light and I am able to get all my "gears" in half the time as other bits I have used. Plus this makes my horse salivate a lot in a good way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Bit for Soft Mouths This is my favorite bit ever for horses that like to get behind the contact or don't like to take the contact. It's almost magical. Horses scared of bits learn very quickly that this one is okay to trust and start accepting contact. I've used it on lots of soft mouthed horses and love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from made a huge change I have a very sensitive 4 yr old warmblood. He goes around behind the bit with me just taking up the reins (no contact even). I was using the 18mm KK and found that much softer than a french link but he still just wouldn't settle into the bridle, lots of constant head bobbing. I gave it almost a year thinking he was just young but tried a thicker bit out of desperation. He was instantly better and after over a week I can say that the head bobbing has almost stopped completely. I didn't think a bit that thick on my fine boned horse would be comfortable but he is much steadier mentally and in the hand.
