Questions About Horse Bits?

How do you know which size horse bit to buy? The easiest way is to measure your horse's current bit. If that isn't available, you can use measuring tape or calipers to measure the distance between the horse's lips. A Western bit should extend about a quarter-inch beyond the lips on either side.

The shape of your horse's mouth can also impact how a horse bit fits. Every horse has a unique mouth so different styles of bits will work better than others depending on your horse's anatomy. If his tongue is large and fills his mouth or presses against his teeth it changes the location of the bit in the mouth. An improperly fitting bit can cause missed cues,irritation, injury You may need to try several styles before finding the perfect fit.

We've rounded up some common questions about ordering bits for horses. If you can't find the answer you need, check our FAQs or reach out and we can help.
