Product Code: BI533Loose ring bits give a more subtle form of communication between horse and rider than fixed cheek bits, like eggbutt or full cheek bits.
Gag bits work by raising the bit in the horses mouth by using the roof and upper bars, this in turn raises the horses head.
Such bits are used in conjunction with rope or leather gag cheeks. These cheeks are rolled, so that the bit can slide freely up and down. The bars are the areas of gum on the upper and lower jaws, between the front and back teeth, where the bit sits. These days it is considered inhumane to use the roof of the mouth, as it has little flesh to protect it and so it is not often used.
Gag bits should be used on two reins, so that the snaffle action can be used for the most part and the
correctional gag rein only when necessary to raise the horse's head.
This Balding Gag bit is available in two 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 was snowed in last winter for 24 days and have spent the last 12 months searching in mobility shops for this item without any success.
Having now been snowed in since Nov 27 here on the Pennine hills (Lancs/Yorkshire border) I was spending my hours on the internet researching hiking sticks for a friend when I stumbled across your website.

Dear Sara and Paul, The items, ref. 14846624, reached me safely on 21st, Aug. Thank you very much.
The lock and hasp are for my "i santi" briefcase purchased in Manila, Philippines, in 1994. Long time I was looking for same lock and hasp, but I could not find. Happily, thanks to the internet, I finally found them on your website. The Italian lock for the briefcase bought in Philippines, travels from The United Kingdom to Japan. Nice story!
I registered on your website. I am looking forward to see you on your web store. Thank you for your co-operation.
