Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date.

Why We Love This

Designed with world-renowned Australian trainer, John Patterson, to provide maximum comfort and top performance. The curved mouthpiece eliminates interference and stops bit from hitting the roof of the mouth, allowing room for the tongue. The shape also reduces the severe direct pressure on the bars of the mouth. Hand polished stainless steel.

    JP Korsteel Oval Mouth Loose Ring is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for young horses! I bought this bit for my young filly a year ago when she was a yearling to show in hand. She loves the bit. I've been using this bit with her as a 2 year old now, doing ground work, ground driving etc. She's very accepting of this bit, and softens and responds very well. She appears happy with it in her mouth. The quality of the bit is great for the price. I highly recommend this bit if you're starting to train a young horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bit! Decided to try my horse with a thicker bit. Chose this one because of the double jointing and the availability of a 6” size. Great quality at a nice price. Horse took to it nicely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Bit Bought this about a month ago now, and my guy seems to really like it. Lightweight, yet thick enough that it is very soft in the mouth. And great quality for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Bit My other bit was too small and this bit was suggested so I gave it a try. My horse seems to be much happier with it. It seems like a good quality and it was in stock, the price was good and shipping was super quick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit I love this bit! I was using a snaffle and my trainer recommended and it's a great price fo what you get.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price I really like the quality of this bit for the price. I bought this bit during the SmartPak 40% sale but with the quality of the bit I would buy again at full price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THis bit has more curve than I expected This bit has more curve than I expected which makes for a narrower fit. It seems comfortable to my horse and I use it with a Mecklem bridle...but had I been aware of the curvature, I would have ordered a half inch wider. It fits more narrow than I had expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Buy I bought this bit a few years ago and recently ordered the "curve" version to give that a try. Love it for my green horses and my older gelding does very well with it as well. Didn't seem to pinch, minimal pressure points.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I find most horses, especially youngsters, love this bit. They don't seem to find it any different than its very costly cousin!
    Date published: 2017-06-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bridling is a cinch My horse likes this bit over others because of the curved mouth piece. It is both comfortable and soothing for them. It makes bridling a cinch and ring work riding a pleasure. I recommend it for young horses or those that work with out the need of stronger contact
