Bits are an essential part of your horse’s tack and equipment, and choosing the right bit can make a huge difference to your horse’s way of going during your every day riding and competition. Ensuring you have the correct type and size of bit is essential to your horse’s comfort during exercise.  Often behavioural problems that occur during ridden exercise can be due to a poorly fitting bit, or the wrong type of bit for your horse, which can cause pain and discomfort in the horse, leading to further problems. Seeking advice on correct bitting for your horse, or changing his bit may help to overcome some of these issues.
