SPRENGER KK UNIVERSAL AU/SS 18MM HORSE BIT
SPRENGER KK UNIVERSAL AURIGAN HORSE BIT
The Sprenger KK Universal bit has a unique Aurigan mouth piece that eliminates the nut cracker action of conventional single jointed bits. Aurigan metal has a golden colour; it is a mixture of copper, silicon and zinc. Aurigan produces a taste and smell that horses love and which encourages saliva production and acceptance of the bit. This bit is for sensitive yet strong horses. It offers the opportunity for more control when needed. This bit is recommended for control through downward transitions, quick change of directions and turning with ease. It is considered to be gentle yet strong, when necessary.
Use: The smallest of the three rings will be connected to your cheek pieces. This bit can be used in four different rein configurations:
One rein can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the large bit ring.
One rein can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the lower bit ring.
Two reins can be used with this bit; a rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the large bit ring, and a more narrow flat leather curb rein connected to the lower ring. Leather or nylon converters can also be used with this bit. Converters connect to the large bit ring and the lower ring. A main rein can then be connected to the converters allowing the rider to use one rein instead of two.
Rubber bit guards are recommended for use with this bit. Bit guards are made of an elastic rubber so they can be pulled over the bit ring. Each guard acts as a protective barrier on either side of the horse's mouth between the sensitive mouth skin and the metal bit ring.
Please allow 0.25"/6MM extra to your desired bit size. ex: if you want mouth size 5.5"/140MM, please select 5.75"/145MM
