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

Designed with world-renowned Australian trainer, John Patterson, to provide maximum comfort and top performance. The curved mouthpiece eliminates interference and stops bit from hitting the roof of the mouth, allowing room for the tongue. The shape also reduces the severe direct pressure on the bars of the mouth. Hand polished stainless steel.

    JP Korsteel Oval Mouth Loose Ring is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped a lot of the fussiness My young horse was being very fussy with the bit I had him in so I tried my other horse's bit on him, which was this bit but 4.75". He seemed much happier to take up contact but it was just a bit too small for his mouth so I ordered him a 5" bit. I like the gentleness of the bit and the price is fantastic! Hopefully he'll continue working happily in this bit for years to come.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, not so sure I bought this bit for my young filly. She did not care for it. She began flapping her lips when she wore it. I put her back in her old French loose link and she stopped flapping her lips. I am using it on an older gelding and he is fine with it. Good figure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice thickness to the mouthpiece I bought this for a relatively green horse who was having bit issues. This bit has a nice thickness to the mouthpiece without being too big for a smaller mouthed horse. The bit issues have disappeared, and everyone is much happier now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit I bought this to use with micklem bridle and I am happy to say I love it. This is a very soft, inviting, bit that doesn't fold or snap in the horses mouth and is shaped to the mouth. It has a larger circumference and therefore may not be good on smaller headed ponies but it is perfect for my OTTB. Excellent snaffle!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy pony Bought this a few weeks ago. Had the same one in a 1/2 size smaller but didn't fit right. Local tack store said size was hardly made and way to big/heavy for a non draft horse. Our paint rides great in this bit, when we bought her they were using a kimberwick
