We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

The ergonomically formed mouthpiece lies perfectly in the horse´s mouth resulting in soft and even pressure on the entire tongue area, encouraging the horse to chew. In addition, this bit supports the contact to the corners of the mouth in a very effective way, keeping the horse on the bit. The gentle joint in the middle which is angled forward - the characteristic feature of the KK ULTRA - and the fine eggbutt design makes it a very friendly bit. The mouthpiece is made of AURIGAN, the material that activates the chewing activity of your horse. The new DYNAMIC RS bit gives soft but very effective instructions for a better contact between horse and rider. 

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 Dynamic RS Aurigan Loose Ring is offered in mouth sizes 5", 5 1/4" or 5 3/4". 70mm stainless steel rings. 14mm thickness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Bit Looking for the perfect bit for your sensitive horse? This is it!! I have tried this bit on my Oldenburg and OTT thoroughbred. Both are notably quieter and more accepting of connection with this bit, especially the thoroughbred with a super sensitive mouth. I would buy this bit again, worth the investment

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and Quality I have purchased Herm Sprenger bits before and this one is by far our favorite! My horse is so happy with it. He readily accepts contact and maintains it. The slight curve makes it very comfortable for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Responds Well My daughter got these for her dressage horse and the horse has been responding well to this new bit. My daughter and her trainer are pleased with the progress made since getting this bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME bit! This bit worked wonders on my horse who was stiff in the neck and difficult to collect. Able to put him right on the bit with feather-soft contact. He was using the original KK Ultra Loose Ring, but the gentle curve to this bit seemed to be just what he needed to relax into the contact. Highly recommend to anyone.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horse hated it I was very excited to try this bit after all the great reviews, and the ergonomics aspect really appealed to me. But the minute I put it in my horse's mouth he threw his head in the air and danced around in the stall. I tried riding in it anyway, and he was very tense/anxious, and held his head high. I tried it a second time, and halfway through the ride I switched to his normal hollow mouth loose ring french link, and he instantly was more relaxed and took contact with the bit. Judging by the way he disliked it before I'd even got on, I think he may have just disliked the taste. I would still recommend this bit to others to try because I think what bit works and what bit doesn't is very much just a horse's individual tastes... but perhaps see if you can borrow one before buying as it is very pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It! I'd been using a French link loose ring snaffle as recommended by my trainer on my OTTB since I started him. Nothing serious, but he just seemed to be too inconsistent in my hand at times (we've been in training a few years now) and while I didn't think a change of bit was going to cure all (I'm responsible for my own position and aids), I did start researching and thought to try a new bit.The first day I rode him in the Herm Sprenger, it was clear that he was happier chewing the bit and he was all frothy. The next few rides the old ways were back, but what I think was going on was simply habit. Once he had the new bit regularly he really started to soften. The contact has improved significantly!Again, I know there are lots of factors that could be contributing to the improvement along with the bit, but I am confident that the switch helped. Yes, it was a pricey bit, but I readily took the chance because my horse is so sensitive and I figured it was worth a try. Indeed it has paid off, and really, in the scheme of things, its one of those "you get what you pay for" deals.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse chews and chews and chews the bit and with this one his mouth is soft and quiet. He loves it. The only thing to mention is that the bit does seem to run a bit small- my horse has other 5" bits (a loose ring and a D) that fit him great, but the 5" in this bit was way too small and I ended up getting a 5 and 3/4" bit to fit him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the extra money. I have a 3 year old OTTB gelding that needs a soft hand, and in our previous bit (Myler Level 1 loose ring) he was extremely fidgety and fought contact the entire ride. With this bit, he readily accepts contact and even seems to seek it out! I can tell that his mouth has relaxed significantly.I would very highly recommend this bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit Good bit, made a noticeable difference in the acceptance of the bit. Increased salivation and suppleness into rein contact. Its pricey but a good product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth the money!!! This was seriously the best purchase I have ever made for my horse! While the cost was high it was SO worth it. My horse is finally supple and eager to accept contact! Thanks Smartpak!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Bit! I purchased this bit for my off the track thoroughbred after other "soft" bits I tried just didn't seem to work, he seemed to be fighting them a little. This bit is soft and he right away gave to it. I can really say that he is "enjoying it" and is much easier to work with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a great product. This is where you should sink the money into. Bits are very worth it. Horse accepts the bit better now. Tasty metal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spend the money! Bits are not the place to cut corners financially! They are your direct communication line between you and your partner! If there was only one thing I would buy top end it would be a bit, and this bit is awesome! Major, my 17 year old dutch warmblood loves this bit! He hasn't been in just a snaffle in quite some time and is "re-learning" how to be supple without a weymouth and I attribute his success in part to this bit. It promotes chewing and conforms beautifully to his mouth.Overall, I can't stress enough how important bits are! They are the most important piece of tack you will buy, so dish out the extra moula and splurge on a good one like this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bit! Of all the places to save money when riding, I think the bit is our direct line of communication to the horse and the one of the few places where not to skimp. The curvature of this bit and the materials make it very friendly to the horse and does not wear or make sore, the corner of the horse's mouth. The price is a bit steep, but a very good investment. This was my 2nd HS bit and I highly recommend them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked For Me My Arab is very fussy with his mouth, either curling up or inverting. I had him in a JP Oval mouth, and couldn't get him to take a consistent contact. Tried a Myler wide barrel comfort mouth, and he lugged and pulled. The RS Dynamic has him reaching into the contact for the first time. His curling under is going away, and I can actually start working on half-halts. I'm really, really happy with this bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but Nice! I considered these bits in years past, but balked due to the price. The principles behind the design seemed thoughtful, and the materials good quality, so I decided to go for it..My horse does seem happier with the contact-- it also feels like I get a better response to requests for flexion. I had tried a a regular loose ring French snaffle (he was very fussy) and then a Boucher snaffle with no link. He was much better in the Boucher than the French-link, but even better in this bit. Can't say exactly why that's case, but I'm really pleased with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good purchase so far so good After trying several different bits on my ottb I decided that I would take the plunge on this one. He needed something to help him salivate more and have a little more feel on the corners of his mouth without the added tongue pressure because other bits caused him to stick his tongue out( not a good thing for a dressage horse!) He seems much more content in this bit than any other bit I have tried thus far. He is now producing a nice white froth and chewing the bit contently and the tongue issue has seemed to resolve itself. I feel like I have something to build on now instead of thinking about the next bit I should try. FYI I had tried several different sprenger bits like the KK ultra but... he needed that extra curve in the bit and the 14mm size to fit the corners of his mouth more comfortably which in turn has made his lateral flexion much better and less resistant. Yes this was an expensive bit to buy but I was lucky to purchase it when smart pak had their sale and I got the free shipping on top of that which made it less painful! And ...if it works, it is worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bit Ever This bit is great for any horse. Every horse I have tried it on loves it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but a nice bit. I use this bit on both my horses. It is nicely made and comfortable for the horses. Both my horses seem to have slobbery mouths, so I'm not sure they really need this fancy metal bit, but it might be a good choice for a horse who does not tend to chew the bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! I tried plain snaffle, french link, wide barrel Myler, and lots of others in between before finding this bit. My horse has a low palate and there's not a lot of room in his mouth which makes this curved design perfect for him. He hated the nutcracker action of the plain snaffle and was way too fidgety with the others. When I put his one in his mouth, he immediately relaxed and was able to focus on softening and listening. So glad I found this bit! It is very pricey for a bit but try it...your horse will thank you for the investment!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! This is my second Herm Sprenger bit and they are made beautifully with a focus on the horses comfort. I use this bit in a double bridle and my horse chewed on them a lot for the first ride and was very comfortable with them by the second ride. He actually looks for them when I'm bridling and chews lightly when working so his mouth is soft and moist. While my horse has been good about a variety of bits he clearly likes these bits and I assume it's the metal and design.These bits are expensive, sure, but they last for ages and sometimes good quality is really worth the investment.To be honest I'd intended to order the bradoon version of this bit and ordered the wrong one but this seems to be working in my double bridle just fine and the only difference was the ring thickness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bit I've Used My horse loves this bit. He readily accepts it. I have tried several other bits and he was immediately chewing and relaxed with this bit. Worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit ever! My horse loves this bit. It has a good taste to it and is soft on her mouth. She loves to play with the French piece and this helps her mouth stay soft. Worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful bit Tried many many bits, but this is by far the best one yet. He is so happy and comfortable in this bit so he goes so much better. Much lighter and willing to bend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful bit I had already been using a KK bit so the change was not real dramatic. However, after 4 rides using this bit, each one gets a little better. My requests to give in the jaw are responded to much quicker. I believe that with more time, it will translate into his back and hindquarters as well.
