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

The Stubben Loose Ring Snaffle is a regular double broken loose ring that is suitable for all disciplines and riding levels.  The Sweet Copper metal on the link offers the advantage of combining strength with a sweet taste.  While being tough, the sweet copper metal offers the main advantage of having a pleasant sweet taste which will make the horse chew and salivate and therefore further relax and more easily accept the bit.

    Stubben Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rings are small but perfect for me. I'm using this with a drop noseband on a petite horse. He works great in it for flat and fences, even on trail. Well made, no sharp edges or rough spots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made bit and reasonable price! This is a very well made bit at a reasonable price. I agree with some other posters that the rings are small (almost bradoon sized) but for my Morgan mare it works beautifully.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I sent it back I agree with other reviewers that the rings on this bit were so small it looked odd, like a pony bit. The quality was good so on a more delicate headed horse it might work just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bit, Tiny Rings I really love everything about this bit, except the fact that the rings are itty bitty.This would make an excellent option for ponies or small horses. The rings are too small to look normal on a large horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horse loves this Bit My horse loves this bit. Its the perfect thickness not a fat mouth full and not to thin that its harsh. She only likes a link type bit and the link in this bit isnt big and bulky making my horse happy and comfortable. The copper makes a nice wet mouth too what we all look for chewing and foam! Perfect

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right bit This bit is a nicely made bit, and it's very nice that it comes in 5 1/4, which is just the right size for my mare with a small mouth. I needed to get her a thinner bit that would allow her to salivate more than her chunky eggbutt, and still be a French link, and after the first ride I noticed a huge improvement in her salivation. I don't know if it was the copper link or because it was much more thin, but it works! I really like this bit, it's just perfect!Another nice thing is that the size is labeled on the bit! And thank you SmartPak for specifying the thickness on the website so I wouldn't have to keep guesstimating online!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bit at a great price My horse really loves this bit. He is a 21yo Arab gelding that I use for light dressage/pleasure riding. He stretches nicely into the bit, chews it gently and doesn't want to spit it out when I am unbridling him. I have always liked Stubben bits and this one lived up to my expectations.

    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...
