Choosing the Right Bit for Your Horse
The Best Bit for the Best Ride
A good bit fits your horse's mouth and facilitates a productive "riding dialogue" between you and your horse. But there are so many types and styles of bits available that making a selection can be a daunting task, particularly if you don't know what to look for.
Jessica Jahiel demystifies the bit-selection process by emphasizing that the best bit is the mildest one suitable for the horse on the job. She then discusses conformation of the horse's head and mouth, how a bit works, bit types and materials, quality, price, and accessories. She explains how to position a bit in a horse's mouth and the best way to handle the bit when riding. With proper bit selection and the "good hands" that come with experience, you will soon find that communication with your horse -- and, thus, your ride -- is vastly improved."
