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

Compared to conventional bits, the Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Sensogan Loose Ring has a middle link that is shortened and angled forward by 45°. Only with this angle the middle link lies gently on the tongue resulting in even and constant contact to allow clear instructions through the reins.The innovative KK ULTRA bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitvity of the horse‘s tongue which multiplies the perceptions from signals given by the bit. When the reins are pulled the middle part of the KK ULTRA fully rests on the tongue without squeezing and the connection rings roll on the tongue. The tongue‘s sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions can be given.  The KK ULTRA bits provide an incomparable precisely contact between rider and horse.

The anatomically adapted mouthpiece is very comfortable for the horse as the rider can give softer instructions and the horse‘s suppleness is supported harmoniously.

Sensogan®

The new bit material developed by Sprenger – is the result of additional development and consequently the improvement of their original material, Aurigan. They have built on the success and positive features of Aurigan, specifically the taste and salivation aspects to give an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. It is the distinctive composition of copper, manganese and zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special.

16mm thickness. 70mm rings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I am a novice (not level) dressage rider, and a new bit was suggested by a clinician. I did my research and settled on this one. My horse and I love it. He plays with it, lots of salivation, and we are becoming successful on consistently riding on the bit. I'm very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy horse! My pony is so much happier with this bit than with other loose ring snaffles I have tried. I'm not sure if it's the new metal, but it seems to magically keep his tongue and jaw soft. I used to have to warm up with a good half-hour of flexion exercises to get his right side unlocked but as soon as I switched to this bit, he comes out soft and light in both directions and has an easier time staying straight through his back down the long rail as well. I am happy that he is happy! Pricey but worth the money.
