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'!).

    JP Korsteel Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    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 Great bit I actually have two of these I like them so much. I broke my Arabian using this bit it works great. Great quality. Love it

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Nice Single Jointed Bit Just love the curved mouthpiece in this bit. My horse and others that have tried it respond so very well to it - with relaxation, responsiveness, willingness to be on the bit and on a nice, light, yet full contact, this bit is worth every penny and more. For a single-jointed bit I think one just can't go wrong with this bit. The bit is balanced, well made, and long lasting. Couldn't get a higher rating in my book.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse loves it! I was a bit unsure when I first saw how pronounced the curve is, but my horse loves it. He has a very light mouth and is very sensitive, and this seems to be the perfect bit for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLANT BIT! I love this bit and so does my TB mare. She has never shown in Dressage before, but we switched to this curved bit, tried her in dressage, and my daughter placed 1st in her both shows we tried her in! My mare responds well to the bit with easy acceptance and she produces a ton of saliva. In fact she was showering everyone with it at the last show. My daughter is now easily able to get her into a beautiful frame. State horse show here we come!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLANT BIT! I love this bit, just ordered another one for my TB mare. I ride my 25 yr. old TB gelding in it and he is usually very hard to control, but he absolutely loves this bit! I tried it on my mare & what a difference. She went right into frame for my daughter & salivating alot! Just showed in it for her 1st dressage test ever & recieved a 68% in Training Level 3!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finn loves this bit This is a wonderful bit for my OTTB. It is very comfortable for him the minute I put his bridle on he automatically starts salivating and drooling.
