Trying out bits

After a recent lecture by Jane Hart and Sue Tracey I came away knowing so much more then I’ve ever known about bits and their fitting. It really is an interesting aspect to horse performance, and unfortunately, one that is often underestimated in its effect on both performance and comfort of the horse. I’m the first to admit that i’d never actually looked inside Cinders mouth before that day. Inspiration led me to researching all types of things online when I got back. Now I can confidently say that I’ve found a bit that works for both of us, and most importantly one that fits and is comfortable for Cinders (after a little bit of fiddling with different ones!). Research into the field of bits and their effects is very limited and something I feel that in the future we should pay more attention too.
