Reviews
JP Korsteel Copper Oval Link Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit...if your horse can handle the copper From the shape of it, this bit appears to be very similar in size & shape (don't know about the position in the mouth) to the much-pricier (MUCH pricier) KK Ultra bit. My horse LOVED the KK Ultra that my daughter's instructor loaned to us, but I didn't love the cost of it, so we decided to try the Korsteel instead. Daughter's horse went OK/fine once in the bridle, but the copper did not work at all for him. It really caused him to over-salivate and over-chew and, by the middle of the lesson, he was spewing huge strings of slobber all over the ring. By the end of the lesson, we had nicknamed him "Cujo" (for those who remember the Stephen King book & movie of the same name). So (unfortunately for my pocketbook), we ended up returning to the KK Ultra. Nice bit, very similiar to KK Ultra, just depends on how your horse handles the material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bit, and great price We’ve only used it a couple of weeks but he seems to really like. The copper mouth makes him salivate and play with it more. So far a great bit and great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse likes it! I bought this bit recently. My horse was pulling and chewing constantly on his other bit so went with a lighter one. He loves it. He carries himself well and responds well.
Date published: 2018-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, well priced bit This is the only bit my horse has had for the last nearly three years. The first time he used it he softened in the bridle and we haven't changed since. I'm only replacing because i didn't take the best care of it and it got a little gross. Could have done a deep clean on it, but when SmartPak had their Holiday sales the deal was too good to pass up. Great quality bit, works very nicely, and won't break the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful bit! I bought this bit a few weeks ago, have only used it a few times and LOVE the difference it made. So happy SmartPak sells my pony’s size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I. NEED. MORE. I have no idea why I hadn't ordered this bit YEARS ago! Both of my OTTBs love it, I love it! My boys are happy with this bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our mare loves this bit Beautiful workmanship, and she really salivates and likes it. She moved from a twisted snaffle to this bit and we worried she would be less responsive, but it was not the case at all. It is very heavy, so I don't know if that is good or bad, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bit, great value Very nice bit at a great price, although it ended up being a little too thick for my horse
Date published: 2017-08-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value - great comfort I bought this bit for backing my 4 yo Dutch warmblood gelding. It fits his mouth very comfortably, it is attractive, nicely weighted and balanced, very smooth and non-pinching center joints. He does chew the bit occasionally. I purchased this bit after he easily and quickly put sharp edges in the plastic of a similarly designed happy mouth bit. He has chewed this bit occasionally as well and although chew marks show on the copper (which is a soft metal to begin with), it still is very smooth and serviceable. The hinges are much nicer than the other bit as well. So compared to the $100+ bits with better metal, this has been an excellent and affordable option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! I bought this a few weeks ago and my horse absolutely loves it! he's a very busy busy horse and has to be moving his ears or chewing the bit during a ride, but with this bit he's calmer and you can tell he's more focused. It's a gentle bit but gets the job done just right! Amazing quality and fits perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised My horse accepts contact on this bit without leaning or avoiding.
Date published: 2016-09-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ponyboy's a fan! My fussy, opinionated, 4-year-old Oldenburg is much less fussy, more attentive and seeks the contact much more enthusiastically with this bit than he did his "soft" eggbut snaffle. Holding up well, cleaning well, and encourages him to chew. We're both fans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice heavy bit My young mare packs this bit around great. Super happy with it!
Date published: 2016-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit! Great for young or green horses, or horses who have a sensitive mouth. I have one for each of my OTTBs and they love it!
Date published: 2016-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to bit Love this bit for schooling and arena work. It is very gentle, my mare just does fantastic in it. I've tried many different bits and always come back to this one. May be slightly too thick for some horses, but mine does great in it.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gentle bit I bought a new horse that was ridden in a french link snaffle. I borrowed one and he was fine in it but when I purchased an identical one he seemed stronger. So I ordered this one which is thicker and he loves it! I think the copper really helps a lot!
Date published: 2015-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! At my barn this is pretty much the only hit we use. It is extremely soft! I never worry if I'm accidentally hurting a horse's mouth with a small misstep or tug. This is an extremely well priced bit and it will last for a very long time. Very pleased.
Date published: 2015-09-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick easy going bit My horse seems to like this bit. It's easy going in his mouth. The loose rings slide easily so the bit is always positioned as it should be. It's "thicker" than it looks in the picture.
Date published: 2015-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to bit I like that it is curved and copper mouthed. Too thick for my current horse, but I keep it on hand because I think it's a good bit. Much more economical than it's European counterpart.
Date published: 2015-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for young horses I use this on OTTBs when reschooling them and it helps to keep their mouths soft
Date published: 2015-05-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit! My horse loves his new bit, he is nice and soft in the bridle with this bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic bit It seems well constructed and I expect it to last.
Date published: 2014-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Handy Bit I've got a mare who has a low palette, a sensitive mouth and who had suffered some severe poll trauma before she came to my farm. While she is willing and likes to work, finding the bit that didn't cause her any discomfort has been an ongoing challenge. (And, believe me, I've got a HUGE bit box in the barn so LOTS of things got tested.) This bit has worked surprisingly well. There is nothing to cause any stress or discomfort so the horse's mouth is much more relaxed and she's foaming more readily. The difference is subtle, but enough to make both me and this lovely, sensitive mare happy. BTW: Don't let the low price fool you. This is a nice bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bit our trainer suggested a copper loose ring bit and I expected to have to spend much more for quality. This bit is perfect. The quality is excellent. We are very happy!
Date published: 2014-11-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat customer;) This is the second bit I own, I use it for everything and didn't want to have to keep changing bits between dressage and jumping. My mare loves it. High quality bit.
Date published: 2014-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results I purchased this bit because I was looking for a "kind" bit that my horse would carry without constantly fussing at it. I bought a 5" bit for my last horse and he loved it. My new horse has a smaller mouth and it was a challenge to find a 4 1/2" bit that was this quality without paying a fortune. My horse has been in training now for about 5 weeks and he carries himself very well without fighting the bit at all. I am very pleased with this bit so far.
Date published: 2014-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very soft in my horses mouth I switched from a loose jaw curb bit to this copper oval mouth snaffle because he was stopping and rubbing the sides of his mouth alot. My horse just loved it. He was so much more calmer and comfortable. He mouthed it a little at first but settled right into it. I love this bit for my boy!
Date published: 2014-03-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit I've used so far My mare was in a small shank when I first got her and I immediately wanted to switch her to something softer. This worked excellently for her. Copper keeps her mouth soft and salivating, loose rings help her to be soft. I've tried several bits and this is the one she takes most willingly... actually sometimes she doesn't want to let it go! Switching to a D-ring to help with our lateral work, but I will stick with JP Korsteel. Amazing price for this bit!
