Stallion Horse Bits
Riders are realizing the horse’s bit is equally important piece of tack.
When finding a bit for a young horse it is also important to consider the size of the mouthpiece. For young horses, Heather recommends mouthpieces with a good weight bearing surface which then doesn’t target a specific area; around 16mm thickness is idea. Heather suggests “A baby might trip or lack balance, or he could be very spooky, but you don’t want them to punish themselves if they take a fright or trip, so you do need a slightly thicker bit.”
Issues that would be a challenge with mature horses are exaggerated with babies and they need to be carefully handling and training in order to prevent it from becoming a lifelong issue. Youngsters can be headstrong and if they don’t understand the aids they are likely to run on. Simply increasing the strength of the bit that you use may cause further problems. Heather says “If you put a stronger bit on a horse who runs off when confused or scared it could be disastrous as it is a trust issue, you do need collection and control but if the first thing that kicks in is a strong bit they’ll panic and try and run through it and this could really set them back in their training.”
To solve this problem, Heather suggests finding a bit that works on different pressure points collectively in order to give you better control, “The basis of a bit for control is to save the mouth, so you don’t have to haul on the reins, once a horse has experimented with a bit he’ll work within those parameters.” Failure to maintain a contact or being tentative in the contact is another common problem with younger horses. Heather suggests trying a fixed cheek bit to offer stability, which will help him to reach for a contact more. She says “It’s not often a comfort thing but a confidence thing, the fixed cheek will encourage him to experiment a bit more and start taking the rein forward and down.”
