Product Code: BIM537

For many years the addition of copper to horse bits has been appreciated by experienced riders all over the world. Eldonian Minos is a robust range of nickel-free bits iwth a copper content of nearly 90%. This added copper helps create an extremely high level of acceptance of the bit by the horse. It encourages a greater degree of mouthing activity, relaxes the hrose and increases awareness, improving the contact between the rider's hands and the horse's mouth. Eldonian Minos bits are an aid to successful teamwork between horse and rider.

This copper hollow mouth loose ring bit is available in three sizes, 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 Sara and Paul,

Many thanks. They have just been delivered.

Just for your interest, the story behind the order: My mother has not been well recently and is just getting back on her feet after a long stay in hospital. She has just started to do things round the house again and insisted on taking out a small pile of crockery, but being a bit shaky, dropped a mug which shattered. She was very upset. The mug was the Barn Owl mug and was a favourite of my father's who passed away 2 years ago. It took a couple of hours of internet searching and a few surreptitious trips to the bin to look at the pieces of the broken mug until I found that you were selling an exact match.

The otter mug was to keep the barn owl company on the journey! :-)

I am expecting a few tears from Mum later when I take the mugs round to her, but this time they will be tears of joy!

Many thanks for your fast service.

Best Regards,

David W., Essex
