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'!).

Loose ring snaffle with sweet copper link. 4 1/2", 5" or 5 1/4". 14mm thickness.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for sensitive horses My horse has a somewhat large tongue and is very sensitive about her mouth. I like this bit compared to some other double jointed bits I have looked at because it is thinner than most. I know in general thicker bits are supposed to be "softer" than thinner ones, but because of her thick tongue, my horse really does not like thick bits at all. This one seems to be thin enough that she doesn't resent it too much without being too thin and thus more harsh. It feels solid and well constructed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My colts love it! The Stubben Loose Ring Snaffle is inexpensive and really good quality. I have started my two colts with it. At first they refused any bit in their mouth, but quickly learned to like this one. The middle joint made of copper is just enough to "sweeten the deal". They both open wide for this bit and work well in it. It is REALLY gentle and seems to just lay over their tongue.

    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...
