Other Bits

When it comes to handling and leading horses from the ground, safety is an incredibly important factor to consider. Horses that are lively or difficult to lead can pose a risk to the handler, and being able to control your horse effectively whilst leading is hugely important. A great alternative to a bridle when leading horses is a Chifney, a type of mouthpiece designed specifically to lead difficult horses and prevent rearing. Here at Unicorn Saddlery, we have a diverse range of bits and mouthpieces to cater for various equestrian purposes, and included in our range is a Chifney, which is available in a choice of sizes.

The Chifney is a horse bit designed to use whilst leading strong and flighty horses that are difficult to lead. The Chifney is also known as the ‘anti-rearing bit’, and can be attached to a headpiece, and unlike other bits, it also features a ring to allow a lead rope to be attached at the back of the horse’s chin.

More Information

A chifney is a severe bit used to prevent rearing whilst handling horses, and should only ever be used for leading horses from the ground. The V shaped mouth piece of the Chifney is designed to put pressure on the horse’s tongue and create discomfort when the horse attempts to rear. Although this bit is very effective to increase safety and control whilst leading difficult horses, it is widely recommended that this equipment is used by an experienced and capable handler.
