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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value The quality of the bit is great for the price.This bit worked wonders for my horse who leans in the corners. The leverage this bit creates was just what I needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse LOVES it. Originally, I planned to use this bit just when I hack out with friends and go on gallops, etc, as my mare tends to be excitable and really loves to take off. I had a simple french link loose ring, which she used to go great in. Lately, she's hated that bit! My horse is a teeth grinder- and it's just a habit of hers, really. We've had her chiropracted, tack checked, teeth checked, scoped for ulcers, and the vet basically said it's just what she does. If anyone deals with this habit- IT IS AWFUL. I asked for this bit and a bridle for christmas from Smartpak, and rode her in it the other day, just to break in the bridle. Wow! She was a different horse! I am now using this bit during all my rides, she goes so well in this! No teeth grinding, and she is actually salivating, and a lot! My horse has never done either. Plus, it gives just the right amount of "whoa" for her to really listen. This bit is honestly incredible- I've seen it be called a "wonder bit" and it really is! I plan to get more for each of my bridles. Never going back to another bit!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit! This bit gives me the leverage I need to slow my horse down without being so harsh that he hides from the bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit! This bit has made all the difference for cross country schooling, gives me control without being as harsh as a gag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit! I was looking for a step up from a snaffle with a little bit of leverage, but not too much, and I didn't want to pay $90 for a Mylar Eggbut with hooks. I love this bit, great price, my horse likes it better than the Mylar one, and would definitely recommend it to any one who wants to stay fairly soft, but whose horse doesn't quite respect a plain snaffle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit for strong but young horse I've been looking for a good bit to hack my young horse in at home. He likes a loose ring snaffle but needs a little stronger bit with leverage. This bit provides just that. It's not over powering and sharp but does allow you to have control. I would recommend it for anyone with a stronger horse that is still learning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit - One of my favorite I LOVE this bit. It adds just the right amount of leverage. It works great on my horse who absolutely detests a pelham. My only wish would be that something like this was legal for the Hunters but that is obviously not going to happen. I love it for schooling at home though.Well made. A lot of people I know use this bit and really like it.It ranks in my top favorites with my kk ultra and a simple dee ring snaffle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bit I purchased this bit for my green 5 year old mare who gets strong on the flat, but doesn't really like to be touched jumping. It's the only bit I've had so far that will really get her back to me and make her work rather than just trot and canter as fast as she can, I love the leverage on it. Also not too much bit when she wants to be left alone, I simply don't enforce the leverage as much. Good bit for those horses who need brakes but overreact to something too strong, and for someone who doesn't want to put too much bit into their greenie's mouth.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit My horse didnt like this bit, it was too much for him. But, it is well made and great price. My friends horse loves it, just too much for my guy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder bit! I needed better brakes as my horse is a bit strong on course, but she is very sensitive and reacts too strongly to a pelham or elevator bit. This was perfect! Soft enough that she doesn't over-react, but has a little extra oomph that allows for a bit more control and a more effective 1/2 halt. Just what we needed - love it!
