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'!).

Korsteel bits are proven performers for all levels of training and competition. They are crafted from materials of the highest quality.

Rein loops add leverage to the simple loose ring.  13mm thick.

    Korsteel Beval Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but runs 1/4" small My horse seems to like this bit, but it runs very small. It doesn't seem to rub so far. Gives rider a small amount of leverage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bit for strong jumper Our off-the-track young thoroughbred gets very strong over fences and sometimes thinks he's in a race when there are lots of horses flatting in the ring. He gets too excited in the pelham bit, but this one slows him down without driving him crazy. And if he's being good, we can change the reins to the larger opening and use it as a loose ring snaffle. We did end up buying bit guards though, we think the bit might pinch his cheeks a little without them. All in all, it's a nice quality, well priced bit that works as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bit, a little too harsh for me This wasn't the right bit for my horse; it felt like a weapon in my hands! But that's not the bit's fault. I wish I had paid more attention to the thickness of the bit itself; I really should have ordered something fatter because it's just a little too harsh for me. It seems quite well-made, particularly given he low price, but I only used it half a dozen times. My trainer wasn't thrilled either with it; my horse tends to get above the bit and she thought he really didn't take a feel of this one. My daughter works for a jumper barn in CA and no one there was willing to loan me theirs to try because they love this bit so much! But theirs too are not quite so razor-thin. I love that there are so many different ways you can attach reins/head stall to play with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bit! This bit works so well on my very frisky jumper, I love that I can easily switch it from softer or harsher by using or not using the lower rein slot. Highly recommend everyone to try this if you have a horse with a little too much go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and value This bit is well made and didn't cost an arm and a leg. I love that the mouth piece is smaller instead of the big fat mouthpieces you often find on loose rings. I like to attach my reins in the "loop" when I am jumping or showing for extra leverage and then attach the reins to the larger ring when just flatting. Makes life easy and my horse goes well in it so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit! My mare was going in a Happy Mouth Pelham for stadium and XC, but found that she was "hiding" behind the curb chain during lessons and practice. I also needed help lifting her front end on course. I decided to go with this bit from SmartPak because of 1) price- the bits from Bit of Britain were either close in price or way more expensive- but then paying for shipping.... 2) it's made by Korsteel. The bit is great quality! 3) the bit is thin! My mate has a low palate and small mouth (5") and she seems to really like the 11 mm bit.Overall, a great bit- wish I had ordered it sooner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bit! I was looking for something with a little more leverage than a regular snaffle, and after reading a lot of the revues I decided to give this one a try, and I am certainly glad I did. My horse has never went so well, he moves much smoother, and fluent. So I am very happy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bit! I love this bit! It has just the right amount of leverage without being as harsh as a gag or 3-ring, and the plain mouthpiece was great for my horse who was getting sick of his Myler dee with hooks and rollers. He goes fabulously in this bit!

    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...
