We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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 is part of a family of genuine patented Aurigan bits that are manufactured only by Herm Sprenger. Aurigan is a perfect mixture of materials (85% copper, 4% silicon and 11% zinc). Aurigan has high oxidation properties and provides a pleasant taste to encourage chewing activity and easy acceptance of the bit. This feature, combined with the superior comfort of the KK Ultra mouthpiece will make this your horse's new favorite bit!

    Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Loose Ring - 18mm is rated 4.9412 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed bit. I bought this bit on the recommendation of my instructor. My mare had not really ever had a quiet mouth, and lately had become more argumentative and evasive during schooling rides. Since I began using this bit she is more willing to bridle and quieter in the mouth. It is a kind bit; I ran it across my kneecap and it ran across it smoothly, unlike any other bits with a bead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth every penny ! I bought this bit for my ottb because he made a BIG drama every time I was putting the bridle on and then he used to hang his tongue and open his mouth while riding, his teeth were fine, and I tried all kind of rubber bits, Hackamore etc. This bit was the solution to all of our problems ! no more drama ! he feels happy with his KK Aurigan bit !

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bit I like this bit, however, it is way overpriced. A bit of same quality but different metal can be purchased for half the price. This is a nice gentle bit, but I haven't really noticed any difference in my horse. Also, green stuff has recently appeared on the metal, which hasn't affected the usage but makes it look like it is always dirty. I have successfully removed it for one day by soaking it in apple cider vinegar (diluted- 3 cups of water and half a cup of vinegar) for one hour.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herm Sprenger KK Loose ring bit I have always preferred this brand of bits. It really encourages a soft chew and acceptance. My young horse is very soft and relaxed in the bridle. I feel it is because of this bit. I highly recommend anyone starting a young horse or, if you have a horse that is fussy in the bridle, to try one the loose ring Aurigan bits! On this particular horse, I have used this bit for only a few months but have used one like it for years on my older horses. They are pricey but well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bit This is my second KK Ultra and it is a 'must have' for working with lower level dressage horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice This is my second KK Ultra bit and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Both my dressage horses have better acceptance of the bit and work better in the KK Ultra. My dressage instructor only recommends HS bits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best thing since sliced bread This bit is so wonderful. The same day I put it in my horses mouth, I had results. He is rather tense in his back and sometimes tense in his neck, but I used this and he was swinging, stretching, and totally responsive to me. It was a dream!!!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
