HKM Stainless Loose Ring Snaffle Bit w/Aurigan Center Metal w/Bean; 16mm. solid
This is also a great basic bit that is a bit bigger than the Shires version. From HKM of Germany, this stainless steel loose ring bit is solid and heavier, with aurigan (metal mix that promotes salivation) center 16mm thick, with bean and 70mm rings (slightly larger rings). It is an excellent value!

** pony size (115/4.5" has smaller-55mm-rings)
