    Happy Mouth Double Jointed Roller Loose Ring is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mare loves it! My mare loves softer bits, and eventually I found the Happy Mouth Double Jointed and we both love it! We have been using it for a month.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but pony didn't like it Though it was properly adjusted, my 13.3 hand pony's mouth wasn't a good fit for this bit. Put at the right height with only a slight wrinkle, it still pinched at the corners of her mouth (it was a 5 inch, appropriately sized, even a touch large for her) and she was very unimpressed! So just be aware that whether or not this thicker bit works depends not only on your horse's preference but also their mouth type. It is really nice though, I'm a little sad that she wasn't a fan!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive mare I just ordered a second bit as my sensitive, hot OTTB loves this bit. She will toss her head, fight and get super strong with the other bits I hav tried. She goes quietly with a soft, steady contact in the happy mouth for all three phases (we compete in eventing.) It is durable too- I have had the last one for over 6 years, and am still using it. I only bought a new one so I had one for my second horse too. It's also nice to have a plastic bit during cold New England winters as it warms up faster and hold heat better then metal bits. Highly recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great price, works well for my horse tried a happy mouth bit since I was told that TB's can have some medal sensitivity, so thought it was worth a shot. She was a bit strong in it the first few rides but then relaxed down. Do be aware there is a "right way" and "wrong way" to put it on so make sure you have it facing the right way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sassy pony has love affair with new bit... My horse was super bit sensitive when I first got him. I had him in a regular full cheek snaffle and even with a very light hand, he was very upset about any kind of contact. I switched him to this bit and he loves it! So much so that now as soon as I get out his bridle he opens his mouth for me to put it on, and when I go to take off his bridle and the end of the ride he hangs on to his bit and plays with the roller in the middle for sometimes five minutes... He is in love with this bit. I've been using it for 6+ months and I dunk it in water and wipe it off after every ride and it still looks brand new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave My Horse a Happy Mouth! Bought this bit about about a month ago and am quite pleased with it. My horse likes to get really heavy in my hands and I am able to be soft with my hands and she stays light in the bridle with this bit. I've used the expensive KK loose rings and a full cheek Waterford in attempt to get gets off and happy and this bit does the trick. Arrived a day early too!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bit I usually don't use this type of bit but I wanted to try it on a sensitive OTTB.  He seems to like it and it is a decent bit for the price.  Not sure how long it will hold up but for now it is a good purchase .
    Date published: 2014-01-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs small in width I would recommend ordering a size up from what you typically purchase because the bit measures about 1/4" smaller than marked, if you measure from the inside of the ring to inside of the ring. Other than that, the quality is fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Mouth My horse loves this bit. He tends to be mouthy but not with this bit. He can relax and be with me without fear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This is for a OTTB I have inherited, super mareish, hard to ride, very sensitive and over dramatic in the mouth, so I wanted to keep something in her mouth, that she wouldn't think was fighting her. She's on her way be being a nice little school hunter horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loxley Loves It We noticed at our last show that Loxley was tossing his head and avoiding the bit. He hardly needs a bit so we wanted something very comfortable. He liked it immediately and scored a 74 in our Level 1 recent dressage show. We won't be changing this bit as he Loves It.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bit I had never used a Happy Mouth bit before and quite honestly ordered this one by mistake. But, I'm sold now. My horse loves his new bit. Thank you Smart Pak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great "nearly nothing" bit This is a very lightweight bit and both horse I've used it on loved it and went well in it. However, one of the horses chewed on it as I was putting it in his mouth and taking it out - which resulted in rough edges and required frequent replacement of the bit. (I think I bought 6 of them for him before I gave up!) My other horse has not made a mark on his; after 20+ rides it still looks brand new. So...how good a value it is depends on whether your horse chews on it or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Our mare loves her new bit! She was having problems sticking her tongue out when she got relaxed. Now she has something to play with with the roller and it is show legal. Thank you Happy Mouth!!
    Date published: 2012-09-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money So I was using the Happy Mouth Mullen on my horse and he is a very very anxious chewer and I never had any problems with the plastic. I switched to this double jointed one because I needed a little more stop and a little less go and he loves it HOWEVER, the plastic on this one is already chipping away! The cost of the bit is super reasonable though so even if I have to replace them every few months, it is worth it!
    Date published: 2012-08-20
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the bit, but not durable One of my favorite bits to use, especially on young horses. However, if the horse tends to chew at all, the plastic on the bit can get chewed up and become sharp at points. I have had to replace this bit at least once because of this. But I love the results this bit gets so I do not mind buying another!
    Date published: 2012-06-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit Just bought my second one of these-one for each bridle! I won't ever ride my sensitive mare in anything else ever again-she's far too happy in this! Finally found the bit that works for both of us!

    Date published: 2011-04-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for some horses Some horses who are afraid of moving to the bit seem to like and trust happy mouth bits and do really well in them. Others seem to find them too big and thick for their mouths and spend their time trying to chew them, spit them out, or gagging on them. I'm not a fan of the loose rings as they can pinch.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing chunks after only a month This is my second happy mouth bit, and the second time that the horse has bitten chunks out of it.Within 4 rides, this bit has a chunk missing near the joint; the edges are sharp and I would image would irritate and/or cause sores on the roof of the mouth and tongue. What bothers me most is that the very first reviewer had the same issue. I am not happy, and since this is the second happy mouth bit with a completely different horse, it's the bit and not the horse. I'll be staying with plain old rubber, thank you!
    Date published: 2009-12-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for a horse that chews the bit My horse has already bit nicks into this bit after only a few rides so I am putting into my collection for use on my "next" horse. I'm afraid he will continue to chew away at it and the nicks will cause cuts/sores on his bars & tongue. I purchased the bit hoping it would reduce his chewing on the bit but not so. Maybe the lightness and flavor caused it to be more of a "toy". The bit is exactly as described, soft, flexible and comfortable, which I would not recommend for a horse that truly chews on the bit.
