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.

Dear Paul, The items arrived this morning. They are exactly what I require to bring my suitcase back to full working order! Superb service and prompt delivery. Thank you very much for your kind attention. I must admit that, as Tripp do not supply replacement parts, I was beginning to be concerned if I would be able to rescue the suitcase. I was amazed to see the selection offered by Cox the Saddler and will certainly use again in the future and recommend to family and friends. Thank you again. Best wishes

Just wanted to say how thrilled our friend was with the recent purchase we made as a 70th birthday present for him. The NHS walking stick has now been banished! Many thanks for the courteous, efficient service.

Thank you for dealing with my order so quickly and efficiently. The umbrella arrived today and I am pleased with it. Much needed at the present time too.
Mr. B. Devey, London
Hi there. Just wanted to say a massive thanks.
I received my Barbour jacket today and I love it. I have been really impressed with your service and indeed the prices paid for the coat. I would certainly recommend you and wouldn't hesitate to use you again.
Many thanks for your quick and efficient service. Being kept informed was very much appreciated. My husband loves the stick. Perfect for special occasions. He has the formal cane from the same company (wood with chrome knob top) but is lucky to still have it, as it was almost left on a bus in Singapore having travelled there on the Eastern Orient Express from Bankok. So pleased we could get the folding variety so it can be packed.
Very best wishes
Susan P., Suffolk
