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.
We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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.

Made in Germany

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality bit Recently purchased this bit for my Morgan mare on the recommendation of my trainer. It has made all the difference in her performance in basic dressage training. This improvement was immediately apparent from the first ride with it. The quality is excellent and I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bit What I like especially about his bit is the weight. It is a clean, solid bit. Quality, that so many other bits do not have.

    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!
