HOME THE CHOICE OF BIT AND BITLESS BRIDLE CONTACT BIT-FITTING TRAINING

A GOOD MOUTHPIECE FOR A HAPPY HORSE!

Every horse has its own preference for a particular bit. And the bit must be adapted to suit the mouth of the horse, not the other way round!

Whatever type of bit is used, it always causes pressure on the horse’s head and inside its mouth.

If the bit is not suited to the horse, the horse will complain.
Signs of a bad mouthpiece:

  • Champing on the bit
  • Tongue protruding from the mouth
  • Mouth opening
  • Clamping on the bit or avoiding the bit
  • Taking the bit between the teeth
  • Tension when being ridden: tension in the back, head in the air, neck too curved
  • The horse is restless
  • Injury or irritation in the mouth

My experience in bit-fitting, along with my regular contacts with other equestrian professionals, enables me to help you find the bit / snaffle that is best suited to you and your horse.
Please don’t hesitate to make an appointment for a professional opinion.
