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

The Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Loose Ring provides an incomparable precise contact between rider and horse. 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 is less than previously thought and the palate is smaller and flatter. Therefore, the space left for a bit is quite limited. KK Ultra bits take advantage of the research and of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue by shortening the link and turning it 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

  • Adapted to the anatomy of the horse’s mouth for clearer communication
  • Limited pressure put on the palate
  • Made from Aurigan which has high oxidation properties and provides a pleasant taste to encourage chewing activity and easy acceptance of the bit
  • 85% copper, 4% silicon and 11% zinc

Made in Germany

Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Loose Ring - 16mm is rated 4.9375 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bit. Well made I bought this bit about 3 weeks ago and my horse is working so much better. He is much softer in his mouth and seems much happier. It seems to fit his mouth really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bit! I bought this bit almost 2 weeks ago and my horse loves it! I had been borrowing the same bit to try before purchasing so we have been using it for about a month and how he carries the contact has changed dramatically!! He is drooling in the first 5 minutes of work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only use Herm Sprenger KK bits Great like all of the KK bits. My horse loves the taste

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gold Standard A bit spendy but the gold standard of dressage training bits. If you take care of it and your horse doesn't fuss (i.e. chew on it) it will last forever. I still have an older version of this bit that is almost 15 years old and still perfect. My young Hanoverian gelding was started with a Myler and recently transitioned to this one and is doing very well with it.
