Product Code: BI580

Loose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits.

This popular loose ring French Link bit with thick mouth, is available in a large range of sizes from 11.5cm to 15cm 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.

Customers Say

Thank you very much for your prompt service, the coat arrived yesterday and I am very pleased with it. Many thanks.

Clare M., Hereford
Just to let let you know that I received my order a few hours ago, thank you. Could you also thank Sara on my behalf for her sterling work in obtaining the
'Shock absorber' walking stick that I needed. Your service is excellent no doubt due to the fact that you are a family business and 'go the extra mile' to ensure customer satisfaction. Regards.

Harold O., Speke
I have just received the jewellery roll dear Paul - wondeful. I'll order two more!


Sara P., London
Thank you, order received this morning.

It was ordered as a replacement for one of an old pair whose centre strap had broken. The remaining old one now looks really old and decrepit alongside the bright new one. So much so that I am retiring it and have ordered another replacement for it.

Tony T., Lancashire
I just wanted to let you know that I received the two fans today which I ordered at about 3.00pm yesterday afternoon.

Your service is absolutely 1st class and I would recommend you to everyone without any hesitation. I would also like to say that your automated email acknowledgement when an order is placed is very friendly and courteous - which is such a lovely refreshing change these days.

I hope your business does well and I will definitely order from you again.

Sally O., Southampton
Thank you for producing such a really nice gift , one always struggles with non-smoking, non-golfing people. It is so lovely that I am about to place orders for two more as Christmas presents for the men in my family.

M. Stoney, Darlington
Thank you for the quick delivery of the folding walking stick. The stick is light and easy to fold, which will be of great benefit to my 93 year old Aunt. Thank you once more for your excellent service.
Isabel H, U.K.
I would like to thank you and your staff in trying to help me and the courteous manner in which they made every effort to do so

Sadly I have had to source another company to get the walking stick., at a higher price I hasten to add.

I would most certainly come back to you in the future or recommend your company.

Well Done on Brilliant Customer Service - even though I did not become a customer on this ocassion!

Kind regards

L.K., Harwich
Hello Paul/Sarah
We are delighted to report our Barbour Gaiters arrived safely this morning. Many thanks for the extremely impressive service, as a bonus we can now look forward to using them on our traditional Christmas walks!!

Compliments of the season, and thank you both again. This is very impressive service! We will certainly remember this for the future.

Mike B., Chester
I have been on vacation in Scotland and the stick arrived before my departure. It is great and I made extensive use of it. Thank you for your service and patience.
