Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Loose Ring Snaffle
Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Loose Ring Snaffle Bits have a three piece mouthpiece with a small, rotated center lozenge that has been anatomically designed to fit perfectly in the horse's mouth. The design of the KK Ultra bit is the direct result of extensive anatomical research of the horse's mouth. It was discovered that the cavity of the horse's mouth where the bit sits is smaller than originally assumed. The KK Ultra Bit is designed with a shortened link set at a 45 degree angle to adapt to the anatomy of the horses mouth, thus ensuring that when the reins are pulled, the round link rests fully on the tongue without squeezing it or applying pressure on the palate. This maximizes the tongue's sense of touch as clear instructions are given through the reins.
Herm Sprenger from Germany is renowned for its outstanding quality and technologically advanced designs. The Sprenger seal of quality guarantees safety and precision workmanship for over 135 years.
Herm Sprenger bits are available in different metals and offer two metals made specifically for use in horse bits aurigan and sensogan.
- Special nickel free alloy which, due to the inclusion of silicon, combines the pleasant tasting oxidation advantages of pure copper with maximum strength
- A perfect mixture of materials: 85% copper, 4% silicon, 11% zinc which encourages salivation and intensive chewing activity
- USDF and FEI approved metal
- An alloy of copper, manganese and zinc that is an improvement on aurigan
- Reduced copper content and the addition of manganese helps to regulate the oxidation process
- May be a better choice for horses who salivate too much with a copper bit
- Will keep its white gold color longer

- A highly polished metal containing approximately 60% copper, 12-16% nickel and 18-22% zinc.
