Harmony on horse-back starts with a well-fitting bit.
The bit operates as a method of communication between rider and horse. It directs the riders rein aids straight to the horse’s mouth. As the mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of the horse’s body it is important to
treat it very carefully. A bit should be adapted to the individual shape of a horse’s mouth and should neither be uncomfortable nor awkward for the horse in any way.
Choosing the right bit allows effective communication through the reins between rider and horse – a basic requirement for correct riding.
