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

Nath bits are especially beneficial for sensitive horses, young horses and for promoting a sensitive style of riding. For more than 20 years, Nathe has developed and manufactured synthetic bits. The bits are manufactured in Germany and come with a tear and safety guarantee.

Favorite Features

  • Extremely gentle to the horse's mouth and tongue

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recently bought this bit to try on my gelding and I'm really glad I did. It has helped my horse to be a less defensive about his mouth and more willing to have contact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite bit ever I am absolutely in love with all things Nathe. I had my mare going in a different rubber bit, she can be pretty defensive about her mouth and is young so I was trying to keep her soft, and she began to resist even being bridled with it. I then switched to a more traditional snaffle, which she liked for the most part but I still felt like something was missing. We have several horses that go in Nathes and I tried it and she was so relaxed and happy. I absolutely love these products, they are thinner than other rubber bits, even more flexible, and are super durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a easy going, very pliable bit to use. All of my horses ride with them .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit I had a very sensitive young hunter mare who just got overstimulated and angry with what I thought would be a soft french-link bit. We switched to this and the head tossing and teeth-grinding stopped. She loved just having a soft solid piece to hang in her mouth.The only downside I've found using this bit with other horses is they can chew through it, pretty standard for a polymer-covered mouthpiece though.
