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'!).

Designed with world-renowned Australian trainer, John Patterson, to provide maximum comfort and top performance. The curved mouthpiece eliminates interference and stops bit from hitting the roof of the mouth, allowing room for the tongue. The shape also reduces the severe direct pressure on the bars of the mouth. Hand polished stainless steel. 4½", 5", 5½", or 6". 18mm thick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! My new horse has a sensitive mouth and I found this bit to be better than my normal loose ring snaffle. EXACTLY what I was looking for and great quality. Also got a free supplement sample! You go Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted This is ideal for my horse, who needs only the gentlest of bits and has a very sensitive mouth. I knew she was used to a loose-ring with a fat oval "lozenge"-type link, and I was thrilled to find this (for such a reasonable price compared to some other ones!). I think it's even "softer" than the one she used to have because it's slightly ergonomically curved. She seems very content with it.I guessed wrong on the size, but SmartPak was great about the exchange as always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Soft Bit I love using this bit on horses that need a bit about as strong as dental floss. The loose ring and the jointed mouthpiece make it a great bit for thoroughbreds with sensitive mouths or babies just getting started. If you believe, like I do, that less in your horse's mouth is the best way to go, this is a great bit. Most of my advance to a regular D-ring French-link, but this is the one I always start with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful bit I had been riding my OTTB gelding in single jointed bit for 3 years. But just recently he has been throwing fits and was having a hard time schooling second level work, so my trainer suggested that we try a double jointed bit. So I order this bit and I couldn't be happier. My horse now collects even better and is so much happier about schooling second level work. All of his bad habbits have dissapered. I was worried about the thickness of the bit because I haved used thicker bits in the past, and Finn hated them. But he really loves this bit and he is much softer in the mouth and much much more responsive. This is the best bit ever!

    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...
