Is choosing the right bit for your horse a mystery? You're not alone! Many of us were never really taught the basic mechanics of horse bits. What happens when you take on the reins? Often what happens in their mouth, head, poll and the chain reaction goes unseen, or misunderstood.

How to determine if your bit is causing your horse pain or discomfort is also covered in this video along with breaking down, simply, the mechanics of many traditional bits such as snaffle bits, Tom Thumb bits, gag bits, and many more.
