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 Turnado bit lies perfectly in the horse's mouth because the mouthpiece is angled forward by 45 degrees. Pressure applied to the reins reach this bit more precisely and softly encouraging acceptance of the bit and ideal chewing activity. The Herm Sprenger Turnado also helps to prevent tongue vices - such as putting the tongue over the bit.  

Favorite Features

Herm Sprenger Turnado Aurigan Loose Ring is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Herm Sprenger Turnado Aurigan Loose Ring bit I have been using this bit for a few weeks now and there is already a change in the movement and response of my horse. He is so light and really seems happy with it. Excellent purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better contact and response My TB gelding hasn't liked to make good contact with the bit. After working in this bit, however, I am getting him to stretch down into the bit. He is very responsive to it and generally seems to like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy horse! I have an older schoolmaster who has spent years in a double bridle and just plain doesn't listen to a double-jointed snaffle bit. I tried the KK Ultra and it didn't communicate at all. This bit works a lot better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FITS PERFECTLY I puchased this bit becase it came in a size 6 1/8". It gave my horse the little extra room that he needed. He accepts and chews this bit more then any other bit.This is a great bit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bit does exactly what it say it will do I purchased this bit for our horse who has an extremely wide mouth with occasional "fink" attitude problems. It is working fine (even though he doesn't think so) and giving me the extra umph but pliability that I need to make him behave and also to encourage him to chew and swallow.
