We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

Why We Love This

Herm Sprenger KK Ultra bits are adapted to the anatomy of the horse's mouth. Aurigan KK Ultra Bits were developed after extensive research at the Veterinary University in Hanover, Germany. The results revealed some new findings: the interior volume of the mouth was less than previously thought and the palate was smaller and flatter. Therefore, the space left for a bit is quite limited. KK Ultra bits take advantage the research and of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue by shortening the link and turning the link 45 degrees. These two changes caused the link to rest fully on the tongue without squeezing or pinching it. With the link resting fully on the tongue the sense of touch is utilized and clear instructions can be passed through the reins.

Favorite Features

  • No pressure put on the palate
  • Clear instructions given as the tongue's sense of touch is utilized
  • Made from the approved metal for horses
  • 85% copper, 4% silicon and 11% zinc

Made in Germany

    Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Bradoon is rated 4.875 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this bit I just rode for the first time in a double bridle and I love this bradoon, Fagan took right to it and it fit him very well, I was worried it would be to big but it fit super well in his mouth. He has a large tongue and a big mouth. But the 6 1/8 fit well. I was so happy with the bit I am going to buy the KK ultra snaffle for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Great! I was so excited when my trainer graduated my horse and me to a double bridle. It was important to me to get the right bit that fit and was of good quality. I am very happy with my purchase of the Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Bradoon. It is a great fit and he has made the transition with ease. I highly recommend this bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit! I have a loose ring snaffle of the same kind and when I was ready for a bradoon, there was no doubt in my mind which one I'd buy. My horse (TB) does great in it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dressage and jumping bit! I had first been riding my TB/Andalusian in a 3-ring KK which only comes in 18mm. He definately resisted it and it backed him up. Then I tryed another borders bradoon. He LOVED the thinner bit and went much more calmly. The spookiness is much better and if he needs a corection he takes it. Also, a great value for such a high quality bit.
