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'!).

Bit Converter is a rounded leather strap that connects from the curb to snaffle rings to enable rider to use one set of reins. Hook and stud closures. Brown. Pair.

    Bit Converter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Correct pricepoint I was a little disappointed that SmartPak only carries one brand of bit converters. That being said, they do their job sufficiently. They are not made of high quality leather (which could be inferred from their price) and required a bit of conditioning. They also maintain a reddish tint and the black trim found at the seems of the leather looked like it was put on a little sloppy. I would recommend them if you are not picky or in a bind, but I will be looking for another pair for my show bridle.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to attach! I bought this to simulate double reins on a kimberwicke bit. I soaked them in oil but they were so stiff I could barely bend them around to attach the second side. The trainer had a set with a buckle attachment which made it very easy to take on and off.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of funky I bought these being the only choice I had. When they arrived I was excited to see how they looked. Well lets just say in the least I was disappointed, the color was kind of like a LIGHT LIGHT brown almost orange . I'm hoping that oil will fix them right up! As for the quality of the leather is seems fair, very stiff out of the package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality for the price the leather is nice and doesn't look is a great price for the quality.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worth the price Firstly, I would have liked more choices for this type of product. Having this as the only choice forced me into buying because it is something that I needed.Secondly, I needed this in black for my dressage bridle, so the bright brown color is not desired, personally.Thirdly, these are so thick, stiff, and cumbersome, too large to stay out of the way. They are clumsy in staying in place on the bit and made me feels as if they were holding the shank of my Pelham at an odd angle because they were too large and stiff to fit the correct angle.They also already have a small rip/tear in the material from one ride.If you need them to carry one set of reins, they will work, And are very affordable, but may not be quite as sensitive as some riders may find necessary to communicate with your horse with any sort of nuance. I will keep them for students, but am buying curb reins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Little Gadgets! I like having a pair of these on hand for the off-chance I've got a bit that's designed to go with 2 reins and I'd rather ride with one. If you're a major bit collector or are just riding a lot of different horses they're great to have around!Leather is a bit stiff, not the highest of quality ever but not poor quality either. For the price, they do the job just fine!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough for me. These bit converters are too stiff for my liking, and mine were orange! Oil fixed them right up, but they're not something I'd step into a hunter ring with. You're doing yourself a favor to learn to ride with double reins!

    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...
