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.

I needed a sailors' knife in a hurry, having lost mine. Having ordered one off your website you did everything possible to get the knife to me before I went sailing again. It arrived in good time at my address in the south of France. It is a real pleasure to do business with a firm like yours which gives such good personal service. Thank you so much.
Philip H., France
Thanks for the delivery. It was to replace a missing screw on my Mulberry purse and was an exact fit. You should post your website on those forums where everyone seems to be looking for missing bits. Much cheaper than getting mulberry to repair it. Regards, Karin

Karin D., West Sussex

Paul and Sara, What a brilliant service! My order was here at 9.25am today and now less than 24 hours since I ordered the new martingales are up on the wall in place of the two that broke. I'm so glad I found you on the internet earlier in the year. Many thanks, Anne.
