Product Code: BI570Loose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits.
This popular loose ring French Link bit with thin mouth, is available in a large range of sizes from 11.5cm to 15cm make your selection from the pull down menu.
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.

Hi Paul, I'm delighted to report that my order of wrist strap and walking stick holder has arrived already! What great service you provide, prompt delivery and I received a very friendly phone call apologising and explaining why the walking stick I'd requested was unavailable. I'll definitely recommend your company to my friends in future. Many thanks
Andrea M., County Down
Thanks ....super quick service !
Annette B., Stirling
I received the items on Friday and they are perfect. Many Thanks.
Andrew P., Huddersfield
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

Hello Sara and Paul. Just to let you know that I received the items that I ordered, this morning (Wednesday 31st).
Thank you for the excellent service and quick despatch of items.
I use a folding walking stick as it is easy to stow in the car, due to mobility problems I have to use a walking stick daily and whilst the folding ones are convenient will look to purchasing a 'fixed' length, more substantial walking stick in the coming months. Best Regards.
