GOODBYE THE "NUT CRACKER EFFECT"
From Heavy Horse to Ponies.
The Ponies have been neglected over the Years
Now the Heavy Horses are also catered for in FM, Breaking in Bits and Loose Ring Snaffles
Check this size list before ordering!!!!!!!! Obviously Tom Thumb is
not going to have 7 inch.
AVAILABLE SIZES IN EACH BIT
Historically, Human Experts have given opinions on which Bit this or that Horse needs. That has lead to this......
when in fact it the Horse that we need to ask. Therefore, I can only tell You this.
Part 2 on Youtube.
Simply get a Piece of thin plastic Tube from the Harware Shop, stick it in the Mouth of the Horse, place a Texta Colour Mark on the outside flush with the Lips and remove. Measure between the Marks.
One of the main reasons, apart from the removal of the 'Nut Cracker Effect" why Horses prefer the new designs, is that they can manipulate the location of the Bit Sitting. (especially with the Barrell Design' This would no doubt aid in keeping the Bit away from the Main Nerve
Any of the various Designs of the new type of Bits versus the 'Nut
Cracker' Jointed Snaffles are a huge improvement for Horses but when
it comes down to precicely which, it is a personal learning curve
taking into account the feelings and messages from the Horses. Like
I say, MOST like either. I prefer the Barrell Centres but Cappo
prefers the Lossenge while Snip prefers the Barrell.
THE OPINION OF HUMANS
Horse Dentists and so called self named "Bit Fitters' can set themselves up as the end expert of WHICH BIT but it is the Horse that is the final arbitor. Therefore, I feel that so long as we are improving and then listening to the Horse accutely, we are doing the right thing.
Bit fashions evolve and Decades have seen changing fashions of Bits. The Tom Roberts era was the Decade of the BIT FAT BITS like Gob Stoppers and I am willing to bet that regardless of the knowledge of those back then, we have trumped them now.
I tell you HP these bits are amazing.
I lunged him again today and I took his halter off to put the bridle on and he turned his head to me lowered it, opened his mouth and put it on.This is a horse who puts his head up as high as he can, I have to smack him on the head, put the lead rope behind his ears and pull his head down, then stick my fingers in between his front and back teeth, lever it open then jam the bit between his teeth and then rub inside his lip/gum so he licks so I can get it the rest of the way in lol
I love this bit and I will never part with it l J

Hi Mr and Mrs HP, Just wanted to write to say how happy I am with the barrel D bit I purchased. My 4yo Arabian had been acting like he'd never been mouthed lately, complete and utter resistance in running reins, ridden, or even putting the bridle on. He was rearing, panicking and generally unhappy with my old loose ring snaffle that I had. I put it down to pain and pinching. The first day with his new bit from you, he was a different horse. Not a single protest, no rearing, no trying to flip over and evade, completely calm and relaxed. I was able to lunge him with running reins on for the first time without him slamming the brakes on and trying to rear, or spin and evade. 5 days in and he is letting me bridle him and is just so soft and relaxed. Best bit I've ever bought. Thank you! Regards Vanessa Resonance Endurance
