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.

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
What a fantastic service - thank you so much - we will definitely use your company again! Our son will be thrilled with the hiking staff.
Kind regards.

Alex W., Warminster
The Barbour storm hood, ordered yesterday, arrived this morning. Many thanks for your help and the very quick delivery. Liz is delighted. Regards.

Marcus D., Devon
Thank you for the excellent service.
James M., U.K.
I would just like to say thank you for my order it is perfect. I have a Radley grap bag in dark brown with shades of pinks which at times I just wished I could put over my shoulder. With your help I am now able. Matching the brown was harder, but a few shades of pink on the bag and the design of the bag I am able to fix your shoulder strap, it is now going to be great. Thank you once again.
Lesley, North Yorkshire
Thanks - arrived yesterday - just as ordered and fits well! Its nice to receive a quality product. Regards.


Rob S., Essex
Thanks for the nice message. My daughter is 24 and has a disablity. She always buys from you, says your walking sticks are the coolest (and they match her pink hair!).

Thanks again.

Regards

Una K., U.K.
Arrived today, spot on - just what I needed, as the jackets are a bit chilly without.
David D., Preston
Dear Paul and Sara, I would like to say thank you for your prompt and excellent service! I have just received the bag I ordered for my Dad this morning as promised. It was so quick and everything in the process went down very smoothly. Probably the best online purchase I have done in ages. Thank you so much. I really appreciate. I would definitely love to use your website again soon. Best Regards,

S.A., London
Thanks a lot. I'm really impressed. I was shopping christmas presents the other day and ordered both from Danish web shops and your shop in UK. I was surprised that I received the package from you earlier than the Danish shops. And the boots for my daughter are just perfect. Thanks again :) Regards Anette
