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.

Imported

    Stubben Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very small rings! If this were a regular snaffle, it would be perfect. However, the rings are only 2.5" and the packaging literally says "loose ring snaffle/bradoon" and that is not mentioned online. It may work for a pony, but on a normal horse, this bit looks odd. Aside from the small rings, the bit is very high quality for the price! I wish I could keep it, but will be returning due to Smartpak's failure to describe the item in full detail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a bit my Thoroughbred likes! My OTTB has a small mouth and doesn't like anything too fat or gimmicky. He seems to have settled in this bit nicely so I'm pretty happy. He kind of has a petite head so the smaller rings work well for him.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Average snaffle I bought this snaffle because I didn't have time to get a nice one, for the price it does its job but it doesn't do much than your average snaffle, it does clean well and fit well. But compared to a kk snaffle there is no comparison. If you need a quick fix this is it but if your looking to save a lot it's not worth it, go with a better snaffle.

    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.
