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 JP Korsteel Hunter Dee - Copper Oval Link is a bit with a classic, traditional look and updated link. Made from Copper, the link encourages horses to salivate and play with the bit. This bit is great for horses who need incentive taking contact from a normal snaffle.

    JP Korsteel Hunter Dee - Copper Oval Link is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse LOVES this bit! My 20 year old Arab gelding has been going in a Dee ring snaffle for as long as I know. I decided to try something different, but not too different. This is essentially what he's used to but with the addition of a copper French link. I had no problems the first time I put it in his mouth and now he practically swallows it when I bridle him. He really likes the copper. Happy horse and happy rider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bit for the price I have a 17 hands OTTB with a sensitive mouth & i've searched & searched for a thinner bit with copper and even willing to spend $170 for a good bit until I saw this JP Korsteel Hunter Dee. At first I thought the oval copper seemed big but when I put in on my horse it worked perfectly well and he loves it. The rings are a bit wider but since I have a big horse its OK because what I was looking for is a thinner bit because some bit may have smaller ring but the metal are so thick and bulky. My horse and I are so happy with this bit and I definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Least expensive double-jointed D available from SP Needed a D bit to fit in at a hunter show. Since I don't do too many, I wanted the cheapest I could find provided it has a lozenge. It feels slightly large, but otherwise no complaints. Does what I need it to! Everything seems smooth and well-made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit for a young rider! My daughter's pony is a very well schooled connemara gelding. This bit is very forgiving on the pony's mouth with a rider who is just learning to steer and may accidentally pull too hard. There has definitely been better communication between pony and rider since switching to this bit! Love that the copper link encourages him to salivate. I will definitely be purchasing more like this!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Bit This is a very nice bit. I unfortunately decided to return it because it seemed a bit heavy and clunky with the oval link, and I needed it for a pony with a small, refined mouth. I think it would be great for a larger mouthed horse, though!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mouthpiece I love the mouthpiece but the D rings are way to big, especially for my cob size mare's head (wears a yearling halter). The D-Rings are big, and give a little too much bounce in the rein. This curved, slim mouth piece fits in the mouth well, and its nice to find a double link copper mouth. I have lent this out to other people as so many (hot and slow) horses like this mouth. I had better results with the same brand in a loose ring (much smaller rings) version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Basic Bit Needed a D bit for a hunter show I entered. Seems to be of good quality for a good price tag. No rough spots and good solid weight.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
