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'!).

The JP Hunter Dee w/ Dr. Bristol has attractive Dee rings and comfortable curved bars. The Dr. Bristol link applies tongue pressure when required by rider. 4 3/4", 5" or 5 1/2". 11 mm thick.

Imported.

JP Hunter Dee w/ Dr. Bristol is rated 4.8125 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Bit! I bought this for my new mare. She has a gentle mouth but still needs to be reminded that I'm in control. This bit has done a marvelous job and is definitely a step up from a normal snaffle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bit I bought this when I was looking for an alternative bit for my draft cross gelding. He can be pretty downhill and strong in his downward transitions. He liked the Myler Level 1, but I found that he became dull to it after a little while, so I wanted to switch to something else. He hates single-jointed snaffles, so the link in the Dr. Bristol keeps him happy. He listens to my half halts and seems happy in this bit. The only thing I don't love about it is that I've noticed that it does squeak during my ride - it isn't a deal breaker but it is a little annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected! I had been using this bit from my trainer & bought one of my own. Works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bit Well made. Fits correctly. Looks nice. Works well for my horse that needed a bit slightly stronger than a plain snaffle. My horse seems very comfortable with this bit.
