Product Code: BI538Loose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits.
Sizing Loose Ring Bits - there should be a 1/4" gap each side of the horse's face. Loose ring bit which are too narrow can nip the horse's lips because the cheek slides through the hole in the mouthpiece and the lips can be pulled into the gap. Please take care to get the sizing right, as we cannot take back used horse bits.
How to correctly adjust the height of your new bit. It is best to do most of the adjustment before putting the bridle on the horse so, put the bit onto the bridle then hold it up to the side of the horse's face. Then put the top of the headpiece level with the top of the horse's head (poll) and the mouthpiece of the bit level with the corner of the mouth. Next adjust the bridle to fit. The cheekpieces should be adjusted, so that the bit lies in the correct position in the horse's mouth, i.e. leaving a little wrinkle at each corner of the mouth. Do not fit the bit to high, so that the horse appears to be grinning. Do not fit the bit too low, so that the bit hits the horse's teeth.
Established in the late eighteenth century (1700s) the Eldonian brand is one of the original and most respected names in riding hardware throughout the equestrian world. Eldonian is owned and marketed by Jeffries, under whose supervision only the finest stainless steel is used, to manufacture bits in a carefully-controlled engineering environment. This ensures that Eldonian stainless steel hardware meets the exacting standards of quality, strength, reliability and safety demanded by today's discerning riders.

Your Shopping Bag
Customers SayHaving spend a great deal of time searching for a reasonably priced Barbour on the internet, I was
very pleased to discover Cox the Saddler's website. As a previous personal customer of their shop in Chesham. I was very pleased to find a range of very competitively priced Barbours advertised. I placed an order Monday 5th January and received my Barbour Tuesday 6th January - what excellent service - nearly as good as going into the shop myself!

Charlotte, My specs case arrived today. I'm delighted with it. It's just as good as I'd hoped and in that lovely box it'll make a very classy present indeed. I'm wondering who else I can get one for. Many thanks Mary.

Thank you for repairing my Triumph Motorcycle saddlebags. The new fastening straps are better than the original.
Ron R., U.K.
The lock I ordered arrived today and fits onto the 3mm bridle shoulder perfectly! Next time I need locks I will be sure to look at your website first. I think you've been a life saver as I was beginning to panic slightly about getting the bag/briefcase done in time for a Christmas order. Just have to get it sewn together now. Thanks once again.
