Lightweight Hollow Mouth Loose Ring Bit
|NEWS: We have opened a Leathergoods Repair Service, so if you want us to help with any repair, just email email@example.com, ideally attaching a picture. We offer a free, no obligation quotation.|
Product Code: BI538Loose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits.
This lightweight Hollow Mouth Loose Ring bit is available in a range of sizes from 11.5cm to 15cm, make your selection from the pull down menu. Remember in a double bridle, the bradoon should be 1/4'' to 1/2'' bigger than the Weymouth bit.
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.

Wow! The new wheels I ordered yesterday arrived by recorded delivery this morning already. Thank you.
Michael L., Hereford
All I can say is WOW! I have just opened the door to the postman and received the hairbrush I ordered on Monday. I'm amazed at the speed you completed the order. Thankyou so much, I had ordered it for my son's graduation and had had my fingers crossed it would arrive before 1st July. It's really lovely and I'm very pleased with it as I was looking for a 'keep forever' present. Thanks a million,
Sally M., Edinburgh
I have just taken delivery of the Tarras bag, many thanks for your excellent service, it arrived when you said it would,and it's exactly as described. Incidentally, yours was also the best price I've seen for this bag well done.
Alan E., Woodford Green
Hello Sara and Paul, I received the wheel and axis pin some time ago and replaced it in the meantime, fits perfectly. Great service you provide and I think it is very nice you combine a web shop with a personal touch. Will most certainly recomend you if somebody needs parts.
Jeroen C., Netherlands
Thank you very much for your prompt service and goods safely received. I was born and brought up in Chesham and bought things from Cox's when I was younger. I was pleased to see the name come up on the internet when I was looking for ferrules and that is why I picked you. I will keep you in mind for the future. Thanks again.
Sylvia B., Blairgowrie
Hello Sara, the two sets of keys have just arrived and fit OK. Thanks for the good service.
Glyn J., Kent
Paul, Sara and The Saddler, sorry for not emailing you sooner to confirm the safe prompt delivery of my dog lead and collars. They are absolutely fantastic quality and look superb on the two Jack Russells. The narrower 3/4 inch collar is perfect on my smaller bitch. My complements to the saddler on his workmanship. An added advantage with the double ended lead, apart from its other versatility, is that I can clip a dog onto each end and keep good control over them. Many thanks and I'll be back for more.
Chris O., Dublin
Hullo there, The bag arrived safe and sound this morning, many thanks for such speedy despatch and excellent service, it really is appreciated nowadays! I'll make every effort to recommend you to others and to pop back again soon.
All the best,
Philip S-K, Worcestershire
Thank you so much for presenting such a beautiful 'zip around' key case. It is exactly what I was looking for. The leather is real and the stitching is well done. I ordered the red color so hubby could easily find it. I know it will last for many years and the leather will get better with age. You know, these days it is difficult to find quality products even in high-end stores. I'm glad I found you. Thank you again. P.S. The cost was quite reasonable too.
Ruth, New York
