    JP Korsteel Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.7333 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good single jointed snaffle This is a good single jointed snaffle. Sadly my horse did not like this bit so I am getting a double jointed snaffle. Lovely look though with stainless steel. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horse Loves It ! After looking every ware for a new bit to replace my old rusty loose ring and trying several new bits with no luck, I found the perfect replacement. My horse loves the curve to the bars of this bit that lets it be comfortable in her mouth. She was fussy with all the other bits I tried and would grind her teeth on them. For a traditional snaffle I would Highly recommend this bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bit Good value for the money. This is my third JP bit. I like the curved design and the fact they can stand up to years of riding. I initially had the Hollow Mouth loose ring but would not recommend this bit because it was too puffy & light. This one has the right weight and size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it! My horse has an exceptionally fat tongue and low palate (that sort of thing happens when you're a fine-faced Morgan, I suppose). I've tried a number of bits before, but almost all of them yielded the same result -- her going around the ring with her tongue hanging out the side of her mouth. This is one of the only bits where she doesn't feel the need to stick her tongue out. The low profile of the curved mouthpiece fits her perfectly, and she's much happier and easier to get on the bit now!Definitely a good investment if you've got a horse like mine.
