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 1/4", 4 3/4", 5 1/8", 5 1/2", 6". 70mm rings (4 1/4" has 55mm rings).  18mm thickness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Bit I've been using the Sprenger KK bits for about 10 years. The minute this bit went into my new horse's mouth, he started chewing it and salivating. He stayed soft, responsive, and happy the whole ride. Nothing but terrific results with all the horses I've used the Sprenger KK bits on. This is a great product, and SmartPak has the best price around (especially when they offer free shipping!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Happy, Round Horse I got the KK Ultra on the advice of my trainer, and I love it. I am now really in contact with my horse - he makes a lovely soft mouth and is very responsive to this bit. I wold recommend this bit to anyone who enjoys good communication with their equine partner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST bit ever My horses absolutely adore the KK Ultra. I have tried knock offs and different double jointed snaffles, but the KK Ultra just makes a huge difference. My horses seem more comfortable and my babies don't fuss as much with their mouths. The bits are expensive, but worth every single penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful quality Of course, Sprenger bits are the best quality. The design of this bit makes a lot of sense. I had high hopes that my horse would love this bit, unfortunately he tossed his head a lot so we ended up going back to his old Happy Mouth plastic covered bit. But I think he is just a stinker and doesn't like change. I will not part with it - I'll just use it on some other, more grateful horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say, I love these bits I sold my last one along with the horse. The price and service from Smartpak was great, thanks for making this easy.
