Since 1985, the original non-toxic Meroth® leather bit has been successfully used by riders and drivers in Europe for decades. This bit has a unique design and will conform to your horse’s individual anatomy after only a few uses. Most horses can wear this bit without a bridle. Especially suitable for bit-weary problem horses, who are being ‘remouthed’. Comes with detailed instructions.
Materials: Guaranteed non-toxic leather, stainless steel
Please note: DO NOT ACCEPT IMITATIONS! 99% of tanneries use chemicals like trivalent chromium and formaldehyde, which allow a faster tanning process, but result in toxic residue in the leather. Many tanneries in Mexico and India still use urine and quick lime. The Meroth® Freedom Leather Bit™ is made from leather that is vegetable-tanned, a time-consuming, old-school process. This leather conforms with European baby toy specifications, is guaranteed taste-neutral and cannot harm your horse.
Please note: This bit should be used by the intermediate to advanced rider with independent seat and light hands. It is not suitable for use by beginners or on lesson horses, where the rider often balances himself on the rein.
Made in Germany
The bit comes with use and care instructions and can easily last 10 or more years when following the simple care steps. Please see the FAQ here.
