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

Thick, kind, double-jointed Oval Mouth Loose Ring with curved bars eliminates "nutcracker" tongue pinching and encourages the horse's chewing motion.

Favorite Features

  • Copper mouth to increase acceptance of bit
  • Increases salivation

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
