Choose The Original Meroth Leather Bit
Please DO NOT ACCEPT IMITATIONS and “copycat” bits! 99% of tanneries use chemicals like trivalent chromium and formaldehyde, which allow a faster tanning process, but result in toxic residue in the leather. The original Meroth Leather Bit is made from European vegetable-tanned leather. This leather conforms with European baby toy specifications, is guaranteed taste-neutral and cannot harm your horse.
Please note: This bit is suitable for at least intermediate riders, not suitable for use by beginners or on lesson horses, where the rider often balances himself/herself on the rein.
Made in Germany
