A wise man once said to me

"Start how you intend to finish."

Bits for starting horses is one of my FAVOURITE bitting conversations to have! 

Starting on the right path NOW, saves us a world of pain (and money!) later.

Don't fall into the trap of using ANY old bit, it really DOES matter that we are communicating correctly from the start - don't be afraid to quiz your trainer/breaker either! If you are intending to do dressage and your horse is broken in with a single jointed thin loose ring we are ABSOLUTELY going to have contact issues. If your horse is broken in with a thick, fat snaffle we are most CERTAINLY going to have overactive mouth issues.

Let me help you bust through the lockdown boredom 👀 with some new bitting solutions for starting horses! 

SO much has changed in bitting technology and we are ahead of the game 😁
