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 Show Jumping Bit is offered in mouth sizes 5 1/8", 5 1/2" or 6". 18mm Aurigan mouth. Stainless steel rings.

    Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Show Jumping Bit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a totally magic bit I have a totally hot wild woman liver chestnut mare, and have tried all kinds of things on her (even though previous horses went mostly in plain snaffles), most of which I didn't like. Once she improved a bit, starting working her on the flat only in a regular jointed snaffle, which was pretty damned hard work (and led to tendonitis in elbows). Anyhow tried this bit, and it was truly magic. Went soft and round, virtually effortlessly. So far only tried flat work, but am considering trying jumping small jumps soon (she gets super hot jumping).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it Lovely bit and extremely well made. Used it for flat training with my young draft who was a bit heavy. Helped lighten him and only used it on bottom ring for short time (2 weeks) - now goes wonderfully on it on main ring. Fits true to size - hard to find a bit of this quality in 6"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from should have purchased years ago! I absolutely should have purchased this bit years ago, it lifts Rowdy up off his forehand without being too severe. He is relaxed and receptive and I could not be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Definitely worth the $ Wow! This bit far exceeded my expectations. Rowdy has a tendency to land very heavy on his forehand after a jump, preventing me from giving him an "out of hand" release. We ride cross country and jumpers and seconds count. This bit had him relaxed, receptive and in self carriage within moments of it first being in his mouth. It gives him no anxieties unlike some other bits I have tried, however it offers leverage and has "taught" him how to travel and land off a jump. Thank you Sprenger and Smartpak, I recommend this bit to everyone who needs more leverage without the severity, this is the bit for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bit I Own After trying many bits, my OTTB loved this one. I had never spent this much money on a bit, and I was skeptical, but I must say, it is totally worth it ! I really did feel the difference ! Great quality ! Can't wait to try another one from Sprenger KK.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific This bit is great- definitely worth the money. My horse goes great in it, whether its Stadium or Cross Country. Its a great step up from a normal loose ring because it gives you just a bit more leverage if your horse gets a little out of control (like mine).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herm Sprenger KK Ultra - the bestest! Is there such a thing as better than the best? I hope so, because this bit is it!!! Love it. The craftsmanship is bar none. My horse loves it, he's soft and responsive like never before, and it gives me the little bit of leverage I need to get him stopping and turning quick. Plus, it looks fabulous on him. I highly recommend this bit for a multitude of different riding disciplines - not just for jumping. It's GREAT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bit! I love this bit. Its worth the price. It's comfortable in the horses mouth and unlike some of those cheap bits that cut your horses mouths this one really works! I recommend this bit to anyone who has a hunter/jumper horse.
