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

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

    Korsteel Beval Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
    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.
    Date published: 2014-11-04
    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!
    Date published: 2013-10-20
    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.
    Date published: 2012-08-14
    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 love this bit! great if you have a horse who leans on the bit but don't want as much leverage as a gag, it does the job without being too harsh if i make a mistake! love it

    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.
    Date published: 2012-03-07
    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 5 out of 5 by from Nice Bit My horse (Handsome Harrison) loves it and if he's happy I'm happy !
    Date published: 2011-06-08
    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.
    Date published: 2010-11-22
    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!
