FES Uxeter Kimberwick
This bit features a slightly ported solid mouthpiece. Creates bar and tongue pressure while still allowing tongue relief when the horse bends at the poll. This bit creates no palette pressure. A good "soft bit" for horses that need very little port, but work better in a solid mouthpiece than in a snaffle. A good transition bit form dee ring to solid mouth for novice horses.

    Comments about FES Uxeter Kimberwick:

    The clinician that was at the driving clinic I went to over the summer, recommended the Kimberwick bit. I notice a big difference in my horse. He seems much more comfortable and doesn't fight the bit so much. He has a pretty hard mouth and I don't have to use a lot of contact with this. I used it first for the driving clinic, but I have switched over to using it for trail riding too. I used to ride in an English hackamore and for a while a tom thumb. The hackamore was good, but the kimberwick is better. Highly recommend this for some gentle control.

      Comments about FES Uxeter Kimberwick:

      I have a very active Arab gelding and had him in a jointed snaffle. Would drop his head and go into full on bucking fit at any time. At the advice of a friend I changed to the low port straight bar kimberwick. He's a different horse. Pulls in his head, soft in the mouth and I can pull him up at a moments notice.

      What bits are made of...

      If you have any questions about this product or a type of bit, please contact us at 1-800-365-1311 or service@sstack.com
      Stainless Steel

      Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

      Copper

      Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

      Sweet Iron

      Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

      Rubber

      Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

      Aluminum

      Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

      Plastic

      Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

      Nickel Silver

      Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
