Hrímnir Bits
 
Hrímnir bits are based on years of product development in cooperation with leading Icelandic horse riders and veterinarians.

Our bits are made of high quality metal alloys by the finest metal craftsmen.

ANATOMICALLY DESIGNED
X-RAY TESTED


• METALS

· STAINLESS STEEL: durable and low maintenance. Does not rust and has a neutral effect on salivation

· VOLCANO: A unique nickel-free copper alloy that encourages increased salivation for a softer and more responsive mouth on the horse.


• LENGTHS

(double jointed bit can be 5mm shorter than single jointed bit)

· 10.0 cm - 10.5 cm - 11.0 cm - 11.5 cm - 12.0 cm - 12.5 cm


Horse Friendly

Most bits today have the mouthpiece curved in the same direction as hole where the ring goes through (B).

Our key factor is designing the mouthpiece with a short link that lays flat between the tongue and palate (A).



Key Features

• Here you can see how the link lays flat between the tongue and palate

• The link is short with a curved top (to prevent the joints from irritating the palate)

• We used eggbutt to make sure that the rings don’t pinch the skin

How to Fit a Bit

• The general rule is that a properly fitted bit measures 0.5 cm longer than the width of the horse’s mouth

• Eggbut bits should rest comfortably against the corners of the mouth

• You can adjust the cheek pieces of the bridle to make sure that the bit rests properly in the bars of the mouth, creating one or two wrinkles at the corners



• WHAT DO THE PROFESSIONALS SAY:

• 10.5 CM FITS MOST ICELANDIC HORSES

• LENGTH SHOULD BE APPROX 1CM SHORTER THAN NORMAL BITS

• DOUBLE JOINTED BIT FITS BEST WHEN BRIDLE IS ADJUSTED SO THERE IS ONLY ONE WRINKLE AT THE CORNERS
