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 4.9444 out of 5 by 18.
    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 Horse Loves This Bit! The reviews are correct; my young horse loves this bit! He accepts it well and and is moving forward beautifully! Yes it seems expensive but in this case you are getting what you pay for!

    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!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the only bits my trainer recommends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Bit I've been using the Sprenger KK bits for about 10 years. The minute this bit went into my new horse's mouth, he started chewing it and salivating. He stayed soft, responsive, and happy the whole ride. Nothing but terrific results with all the horses I've used the Sprenger KK bits on. This is a great product, and SmartPak has the best price around (especially when they offer free shipping!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Happy, Round Horse I got the KK Ultra on the advice of my trainer, and I love it. I am now really in contact with my horse - he makes a lovely soft mouth and is very responsive to this bit. I wold recommend this bit to anyone who enjoys good communication with their equine partner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST bit ever My horses absolutely adore the KK Ultra. I have tried knock offs and different double jointed snaffles, but the KK Ultra just makes a huge difference. My horses seem more comfortable and my babies don't fuss as much with their mouths. The bits are expensive, but worth every single penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful quality Of course, Sprenger bits are the best quality. The design of this bit makes a lot of sense. I had high hopes that my horse would love this bit, unfortunately he tossed his head a lot so we ended up going back to his old Happy Mouth plastic covered bit. But I think he is just a stinker and doesn't like change. I will not part with it - I'll just use it on some other, more grateful horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can I say, I love these bits I sold my last one along with the horse. The price and service from Smartpak was great, thanks for making this easy.
