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'!).

Uxeter Kimberwicke has slotted rings, allowing two rein positions. Can be used as a snaffle or curb.

4 3/4", 5" & 5 1/2". 14mm thick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kimerwicke Nice bit. Good quality and heavy duty. Works well on my APHA western mare for hunt seat classes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Difference I normally ride in a french link snaffle, but really needed something with more control. I started out on the higher rein loop and didnt get much response from my mare, and it quite frankly seemed to irritate her. After a couple rides I moved the reins to the bottom loop and what a major difference it has made in my mares contact with the rein. She has lowered her head, responds much better to light contact and collects way easier now. Not a bit for a inexperienced rider or someone with harsh hands. Love this bit as it has completely changed my horses ride and respect for the bit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality! I really like this bit for my Warmblood, who tends to get too fast and too strong. He now pays attention, but doesn't hollow out to evade the bit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge difference in the first ride I bought this for my thoroughbred mare who does not use her back muscles and instead likes to toss her head and avoid the bit. During the first ride she came into frame and was able to keep her head down. This has extremely helped her balance. I would recommend for an experienced rider who will not pull on the bit. The only problem i have had with it is she is able to get her tongue over it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bit Ever Love this bit! Great for horses that you really need to put a stop on. I wouldn't recommend it for a green horse or a novice rider as you need quiet hands for the bit to perform at it's best. Great bit to give your horse a refresher.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, excellent price. I purchased this to use as a tune-up bit on my 15 year old App gelding, who usually rides in a basic single-joint smooth western d-ring snaffle. I bought the 5 1/2 inch for him (his standard size) and it fits perfectly. There's a small gap on either side of his mouth (so there's no pinching on his gums or lips) and the holes for headstall attachment are curved outwards ever-so-slightly to eliminate any possible pinching to the sensitive sides of his face. Everything is very high-quality; no squeaky or loose joints, the mouthpiece is even and smooth, and the chain is adjustable and sits flat against his chin when attached properly. It provides enough tongue relief with the low port that he doesn't fuss at all. He mouthed it a bit when I first put it in, but accepted it almost immediately and didn't do any funky avoidance maneuvers, like sticking his tongue out or dropping his nose to the ground. The independent cheeks allow me to use direct or indirect (neck) reining, so I don't have to change my riding style at all. Overall I'd rate this an excellent purchase, and highly recommend it to any experienced rider looking for a good tune-up bit for a good snaffle-broke horse. However, as with all leverage bits, this is NOT a bit for a green horse or novice rider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I wanted to try this bit because my mare can be very resistent and pull on the reins. Wow! She is so light with this bit. I love it! She seems to like it as well. She comes onto the contact and rounds her back much better. I would recommend this bit for horses that like to pull and are stiff and resistent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Bit my Gelding likes! This bit is great. My gelding is very strong and does not have a stop button. I have tried almost every bit out there, snaffles, pelhams, double bridles, but this is the only one he behaves in and is comfortable in. I dont mind it either!

    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...
