Overview

Why We Love This

Sprenger Duo Bits are very gentle on the horse’s mouth. The mouthpiece is made of soft, flexible plastic which adapts to the horse’s mouth in an ideal way. The material is food-safe, solvent-free and does not contain any plasticisers. The mouthpiece is reinforced with a steel cable to make it stable and to provide more security. This bit can be used on both sides, either as a straight edged flexible bar or with a low port that leaves space for the tongue.

Reviews
Herm Sprenger Duo D-Ring Snaffle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, soft bit! I bought this in the 5-in for my OTTB mare. She seems to like it and it helps reduce some fussing/tension. My only complaint is that it takes more rein to bring her out of the canter than I'd like in this one, so I probably won't use it for jumping or xc schooling, but for relaxed flat work at home, it's a nice option for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer but for my soft mouthed TB. He now accepts the bit and is so relaxed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my mare needed I have a green, soft-mouthed, fussy OTTB mare. I've had such a tough time finding a bit she goes well in and doesn't just chomp on. I finally took the leap and ordered this bit, despite its price. I have to say, it's an amazing bit and worth every penny! She had lipstick on the first ride and the fussiness is gone. My mare is even more than willing to take this bit when we tack up. I've been very happy with how the bit is wearing. It's been in use for about two months now and looks new, except for some change in color. There are no teeth marks or any evidence of wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! My horse has a super soft mouth and was grinding divots in his teeth from a normal snaffle. He loves the rubber Sprenger and accepts it happily. It did take him a few weeks, but he did just figure out how to chew on it so I think there will be a few replacements of this in my future. But, that's how it goes. It is rubber after all. I'm happy there's a cable running through it so when the inevitable happens I won't be without my bridle :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most perfect young horse bit My young horse has such a sensitive mouth that he required a bit that he could lean on, per say. Not lean or hang, but find the contact with confidence. The D ring feature also helps in steering and showing him to the middle. I’m so very pleased with the Duo bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft bit my mare loves My 5 year old mare is very soft and was fussy in her loose ring , french link snaffle. I had to open her mouth to put on the bridle. Now with this bit she reaches for her bit and bridle. Her head has gone down and sometimes I have to prod her to open her mouth to let go of the bit when untacking. It is like her soother. The D-ring full rubber snaffle is great for more lateral control without pinching the corners of her mouth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too thick, not durable I only had to try this on my fine-nosed TB for him to tell me he didn't like it--the mouthpiece is fairly thick, so particular horses won't be able to close their mouths around it. I was spending the dough to get something higher quality than a Happy Mouth, but even after being in my horses's mouth less than a minute it's obvious this mouthpiece is not durable--it was already flaking and it also came with a blue-ish hue in spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Starter Bit This bit is very pricey, but it was the only d-ring, mullen mouth I could find that was smooth and not made of black rubber. I'm using it as a starter bit for my very mouthy, young horse. He went really well in it and played with it less than a regular jointed snaffle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! Great quality and my horse loves it. I purchased the 4 3/4.
