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 Aurigan Loose Ring - 18mm is rated 4.944444444444445 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle but effective I had borrowed my trainers KK Ultra for about two months to make sure this was the bit for my new pony. We couldn't find any other bit that he liked. He has a tendency to get behind the bit if too strong of a bit. The KK Ultra is a great bit and I would recommend for a horse that is sensitive with a soft mouth. No pinching and cleans easily.

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.
