Product Code: BI610

Dutch gag bits are also known as continental gags or bubble bits. They are a cross between a pelham and a gag. The mouthpiece is free to move up in the horses mouth like a gag (but not as far). Dutch gags act on the poll with varying degrees of strength, depending upon which ring the reins are placed, the lower the ring the greater the strength.

This four ring Dutch gag bit with French link is available in two sizes, make your selection from the pull down menu.

Loose 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.

Customers Say

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.

Lynsday S. Awl by Hand, Morpeth
I want to thank for your attention and let you know that I received the locks yesterday in time for another trip. It was indeed fantastic to find your site selling those locks. I bought that Delsey suitcase in a trip to London in June 1984!! The sales agent jumped on the bag to demonstrate how strong it was (at the time thos suitcases were still produced in France), I never forget that and indeed, it is strong - 27 years old and still in good shape, but the locks could not resist airport security in Houston. The new locks are now in place and tomorrow will fly again in another direction.
Edouardo C., Rio de Janeiro
Part supplied fitted perfectly. Many thanks for advice and prompt attention. Regards

Andy H., Kilmarnock
Good morning, Sara and Paul. Just to say we collected our order this morning from the Post Office and wanted to let you know how delighted I am with the product. It is very smart with an attractive lining and very good value for the price! A great present for my friend's son's 18th birthday. My 19-year-old son said he'd be
delighted to receive such a present. I think it's a combination of the soft leather, versatility of 'slots', beautiful lining (matching the packet as well) and reasonable price which made it such a satisfying purchase.
With best wishes.

Rachel M., Edinburgh
Thank you so much, the stock pins arrived exactly as predicted and are just what I wanted. All ready for the Autumn hunting to start!

Angela P., Waltham Abbey
Jacket arrived this morning, thank you - excellent service, fully customer focused. Bigger fish could learn a thing or two from you!

It's great to know of family businesses like yours, and will look to you first for outdoor gear.

Jacket looks good quality and stylish, too. Be just the job for windy days. It certainly whips up here!

Jan, Scunthorpe
Thank you an extremely efficient service! 'm very impressed.
Michelle C., Surrey
Thank you for your prompt and helpful service.
I'm a big fan of Barbour (this will be my third), so I'm looking forward to receiving the slightly longer version.
As suggested, I have now registered with your website; and will definitely consider you for future purchases.
Certainly your prices are very competitive. 179 is an excellent price for a Barbour. My Beaufort cost me 205 about 4/5 years ago, from a major department store. Very best regards.

John M., Liverpool
The strap and clips arrived yesterday as you said they would and they are fabulous, just what I needed to add to my Greek leather briefcase. I shall definitely come back to you again in the future. Regards.

Chris P., North Yorkshire
Dear Sara and Paul: It is very kind of you to inform me this. Thank you very much for your help.
I really appreciate your business' good service.
With kind regards,

S.C.Y., Taiwan
