Overview

Why We Love This

The Herm Sprenger Duo Loose Ring bit is very gentle on the horse’s mouth and tongue, and very comfortable. 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 Loose Ring is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bit for my horse This bit is wonderful. My horse loves it! He likes the plastic texture. It is firm with a slight bend. My horse accepts contact for the first time without a fight. It is more narrow the regular bits and is perfect for his low palate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bit for green horse with soft mouth My young ottb is far less fussy in his mouth with this bit than others I tried. I’ve only been using it for a few weeks, but so far it is holding up well, unlike the happy mouth bit that my guy tore up within two rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for my guy I have been using this bit on my extremely “I can’t possibly take contact” Morgan gelding for about 8 months. He’s not thrilled with any bits, but this has been the best. He has chewed a few rough spots into it, but I just take some sandpaper and smooth them out. We both like how lightweight it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have had this bit for about 3 weeks and it has made quite a difference. With out changing anything else, my pony is now willingly reaching into to the bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miraculous Y’all ! I have a mustang that gnaws on the bit like it’s his JOB. His FULL TIME JOB.I’ve tried all sorts of gentle bits to no avail, thought I would give this one a try. Put this bit in his mouth he gave it a couple of nibbles closed his mouth and carried it happily without drama. This horse wears a cob size bridle adjusted on the middle holes and a 4 3/4” bit but the 5” in this bit fits him well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement for Nathe Bit I needed a 5-in. Nathe bit, but that size is no longer available. The Herm Sprenger Duo was recommended and it was an excellent choice. My mare is happy with her new Duo, and hardly noticed the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It didnt work for this mare :( I was really hoping this bit would be the answer to my mare who chomps on the bit. I have tried just about every mild bit out there...she really went after this one...after several adjustments I decided she would ruin it so I never even rode her in it...it looks well made except for there is a seam in the rubber/ plastic.. and it was difficult to tell which was the correct way the bit should face..no curve to it...I decided seam side away from the tongue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my sensitive gelding I was having problems with my gelding relaxing and letting me manipulate his shoulders and back to give him more of the relaxed "swing" to his gait. I was previously riding him in a three piece loose ring snaffle, which worked well but he still wanted to tense up in his poll. It only took one ride with this bit to make a world of difference! Now our rides are more focused on progressing through the levels instead of using 1/2 of our time to get him to come to the bit. A little expensive, but well worth it- the happy mouth bits are much different. Super happy with this bit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my sensitive OTTB My soft-mouthed, super sensitive OTTB has greatly appreciated the switch to the HS Duo. Previously I had a loose-ring french link, which he went alright in, but with this bit it's night and day. He's finally in my hands and not braced against contact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mouth pleaser. I have used this bit on two horses that ordinarily go in a Nathe Flexible loose ring for dressage. I decided to give this one a go when I couldn't get a replacement Nathe in the size I needed. The mouthpiece seems a bit thinner than the Nathe flexible, and not quite as soft. It is not hard like a Happy Mouth by any means, it just isn't as flexible as the Nathe. However, I consider this a good thing since one of my horses managed to mangle the Nathe with her chewing on the bit-- and it's not a bit I want to be replacing every few months. Both horses seem quite content, relaxed, and accepting of this bit, which makes me happy. Win-win.
