Shires Blue Alloy Hunter Dee with Mullen Mouth is rated
Rated 5 out of
This bit is amazing. I have a large thoroughbred mare who can be very strong for me (and I'm very small, so it was a big challenge as she'd pull me down). I tried all sorts of bits trying to find something that she liked, that I could actually ride her in, and that wasn't too strong or harsh as I don't care for harsh bits (especially on thoroughbreds). Previously the best bit we'd tried was a rubber mullen mouth pelham, but while that made life easier for me, she did not care for it very much. On a whim I bought this to try, and she loves it. And I love it because she's so lovely and ride-able in it. Somehow it's both super soft on her mouth yet it still gives me great brakes when I need it. It's so lovely to have finally found something that is perfect for both of us.

A nice bit.
So far so good. My horse who is a bit of a leaner, seems to like this bit. The small port works without being too much. I think my horse also like the sweet metal and seems to really accept this bit.

Just as good as a Bomber Bit!
I bought this bit a few months ago for a gelding that likes mullen mouth bits. He needed a bit more "oomf" and I thought the low port might help, as well as the D ring feature. I treied the loose ring version but found he needed more support. It worked and I saved 100s of dollars by using the Shire version.
