Horse Bits

Here at Online for Equine we fully understand the difficulty of trying to pick the best bit for your horse. There are so many factors to consider, including your horse's age, breed and oral condition to name just a few.

What is a horse bit

A horse bit is a particular type of tack that is placed in the mouth of your horse that helps the rider communicate with it. Usually made from metal or a synthetic material, the horse bit rests on the bars of the mouth in a section where there are not teeth. Used for steering and directing, a bit is held in place by means of reins attached onto a bridle.

Bit Types

There are many different types of bits, all with their own features, uses and needs. A loose ring snaffle is a popular item, it is a single joint non-leverage horse bit which does not amplify the pressure added through the reins, a popular choice for casual riding. A curb bit however does use lever action and was traditionally used by western riders. A extremely popular product is the Pelham bit, which has elements of both a curb and snaffle bits, putting pressure on the bars of the mouth, the tongue and the lips of the horse. Each bit type will be used by different rider on different horses for different occasions. That is why it is important to know what bit you are after.
