    Default 6 7/8" hs loose ring, where do I find ?

    Looking for a loose ring that large. I'm not up on metrics and had my trainer and the owner of this horse measure his bit and that's what they measured. It's not very thick I think it's a 12 mm. Ultra mouth piece. Any ideas? Horse will b with me next week and I was hoping to have the bit come with him but no such luck. Thx for ur time in advance

    HS makes Ultra loose rings up to 6 1/2" and in that size only comes in a 16mm width.

    Bits don't come, as far as I know, in eigths. Bits are measured in inches and some are quarter inches, some only come in half inches, so, 5 inch, 5.5 inches and 5 and a quarter inch. I've never seen 5 and three quarters inch, but there may be. then 6 inch, 6 and a half inches.

    As for the thickness, those are in mm and the thinner are 12mm and thicker 15, 16mm or so.

    If you need larger bits you could look at draft bits, but I don't know how those are sized. I still don't think they are sized in eigths of an inch, though.

    drafttack.com has a good selection of large sized bits. They are super friendly too; I've had to return a few bits due to sizing/quality issues and have had no problem.

    Default 6 and 1/8 is a standard size - so they do make eighths
