Ultra® Bit Cleaner and Freshener


I would highly recommend this bit


I ordered this bit as a affordable starter bit for a horse moving from a dog bone, short shanked bit. He took to it with no issued at all, seems to be comfortable and relaxed. It is a little heavier than I expected, but it is well designed and balanced. Bottom line is, the horse is happy with the bit, so I am too.




It's a beautiful bit.


I can't wait to show my horse with this bit. He loves it and it's a beautiful bit for show

Nice bit, keeps him happy


My horse is very fussy about his curb bit. He is very comfortable with this bit, just enough purchase with our too much shank or port. Very economical. I am very pleased with my purchase


McHenry, Il


Great quality for the price


Great alternative to the pricier version. Wish there was more of a selection on the mouthpieces.

Beautiful Bit


Looks beautiful and gives my Stallion something to play with to keep his mind on work and not on the mares. Litle heavier than I thought it would be but doesn't seem to bother him, so we're good.

great bit!!!


Great bit. Very fancy. Looks great for showing




Great quality bit for what you buy!


Great bit for my Morgan mare - she gets bored easily and this keeps her attention on what I'm asking, not on whatever catches her fancy. The roller sounds a bit clunky in the mouth, and watch out for dents on the conchos on the sides of the bit. Otherwise a great bit!!!

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


Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.


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.
