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

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.
