    JP Korsteel Copper Oval Link Loose Ring Snaffle is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! I bought this bit for my 3 year old TB and he absolutely LOVES it! The loose ring combined with the link give him the perfect ability to adjust the bit, and be able to relax with a bit in his mouth. Would definitely buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Works well for a young quarter horse who is a little fussy with the bit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive mare likes it Been using this bit for a few weeks now. My mare is a rescue with an unknown background, but came with a really hard mouth and a lot of work related anxiety. Lots of dental work later, her mouth is all fixed, and after trying a few different bits she seems the least anxious in this and has stopped fussing as much. Its a keeper!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my OTTB loves this bit! My OTTB and I have recently started dressage training after years of hunters, and are slowly but surely learning how to be round and soft on the bit. We'd be borrowing an Albacon loose ring from my trainer that isn't made anymore, and this was the closest thing to that bit I could find. It's a bit thinner than the Albacon and I've found that he's even more willing to come round when in this bit. I'm very pleased and my gelding is happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! Fits my horse well, and is made of great quality metals. Korsteel is the way to go!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit...if your horse can handle the copper From the shape of it, this bit appears to be very similar in size & shape (don't know about the position in the mouth) to the much-pricier (MUCH pricier) KK Ultra bit. My horse LOVED the KK Ultra that my daughter's instructor loaned to us, but I didn't love the cost of it, so we decided to try the Korsteel instead. Daughter's horse went OK/fine once in the bridle, but the copper did not work at all for him. It really caused him to over-salivate and over-chew and, by the middle of the lesson, he was spewing huge strings of slobber all over the ring. By the end of the lesson, we had nicknamed him "Cujo" (for those who remember the Stephen King book & movie of the same name). So (unfortunately for my pocketbook), we ended up returning to the KK Ultra. Nice bit, very similiar to KK Ultra, just depends on how your horse handles the material.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bit, and great price We’ve only used it a couple of weeks but he seems to really like. The copper mouth makes him salivate and play with it more. So far a great bit and great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse likes it! I bought this bit recently. My horse was pulling and chewing constantly on his other bit so went with a lighter one. He loves it. He carries himself well and responds well.
    Date published: 2018-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, well priced bit This is the only bit my horse has had for the last nearly three years. The first time he used it he softened in the bridle and we haven't changed since. I'm only replacing because i didn't take the best care of it and it got a little gross. Could have done a deep clean on it, but when SmartPak had their Holiday sales the deal was too good to pass up. Great quality bit, works very nicely, and won't break the bank.
