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.

Here at Unicorn Saddlery, we have an extensive range of Bits in a wide variety of types, to suit many different horses and disciplines from Neue Schule, Shires and Abbey England. Whether you are looking for a simple snaffle, or a double Pelham bit, you are bound to find something suitable for your horse or pony within our range of Bits here at Unicorn Saddlery. We have a huge selection of snaffles and training bits available in a variety of styles, including Eggbutts, Loose Rings, Full Cheek and Cherry Roller designs. We also have a huge collection of gags and Pelhams, and all the accessories you need to accompany the bit, including curb chains, couplings and bit guards. In addition to our great range of bits for all types of riding, we also supply a Liverpool bit which is ideal for carriage driving, featuring a straight cheek with two slots for a choice of rein positions.
