Softer and supple mouth
Started training a 16 yr old mare, who opened her mouth and flipped her tongue over her bit every time I worked her.Lunging was impossible when she decided to do it. So many fixes for this...Tongue tying, drop noseband, flashnose band.... but were any of these a fix or a cover up to the problem. I remeasured the size of her mouth and she's not the average 5 in bit. Which wasn't her problem I had the correct size. In fact most horses are 4 3/4. I researched this issue I came across an article on this bit. It seems to be the answer to my problem. The link in the middle gives her less tongue pressure, then she felt with a simple D ring snaffle. I strongly recommend this bit for your collection of bits. its worth it's weight in gold.

Good mild bit
It's a little squeeky first off, but it got better after 3 or so rides. It's easy mistake which is front and back, but the korsteel brand should be at the front. Other than that, it's a nicely made inexpensive bit.

Great bit!
This is the only bit I've tried on my finicky, fussy Haflinger that he has even sort of liked. The 5 1/2" fit him pretty well. Wish it came in a 5 1/4". I like it isn't curved like many mouthpieces are. I understand that the curve make the connection softer, but I think it was interfering with communication and my horse was confused. He likes this bit an it is almost straight. It's a nice weight and sized accurately. Overall, I like this bit and I'll buy it again if I need to.

Wonderful bit
I have a 7 yr old 15.1 hand thoroughbred that has a sensitive mouth that is hard to find bits that fit. This bit fit her perfectly. I got the 4 3/4" because she has a small mouth. She is bending through the turns now, and working on the bit!

If we don't like the bit, can we return it?
Carson C on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately bits are not returnable items.

what size do i get with my cob bridle?
phantom on Feb 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I agree that you must measure for every bit. Even to match bits already in your tack room with any horse. I made my measuring instrument with a wooden spoon (to simulate more bit diameter) and two flexible rubber "slobber stoppers" that slide very nicely but still grip the wood for actual measurement. The spoon end makes a nice grip while guiding sliders. The wood doesn't bang the teeth like the expensive device that I purchased. A nonviolent visual of the mouth will give you a better idea of mouth conformation (bridge/tongue shape et al) in its natural state. Measuring with a flexible device translates mouth contours into added length. A narrow thick tongue can add almost an inch.
