HBF Bits and Bridles

we've found it extremely difficult to source bits with the mouthpieces we want, with the sides we want, that we know horse's go amazingly well in.

also just simple cavesson bridles, good quality leather, reasonable price, that don't compromise a horse's biomechanics. 

so after much discussion, trials, we are pleased to announce we are now able to provide our own range with Horsemanship saddlery. some of these are available now... learn more

What We Do,

Why

"Horse Bit Fit?" 

We Believe In
"Communication NOT Control"
"We can't change the world by helping one horse, and rider - but we can change the world for that horse, and rider" Carol Cobbett, Founder.

Most horse owners spend hundreds of pounds on a saddle, have it fitted properly, same amount of money on rugs, feed, but only a few pounds on the horses Bit, and very rarely have it checked, along with the Bridle . 

"Horse Bit Fit" isn't about what you spend on a Bit and Bridle though, but if both are fitted correctly, correct size, and not compromising your horses natural movement.  Bit right way up (yes that matters too!), correct for your horses mouth, and tongue shape, also suitable for what you want to do, or achieve with your horse.

 The habit or culture of Bit and Bridle fitting has been trial and error for so long now. just trying Bits because recommended by a friend, or by someone at the end of a phone. This does not work, and can be costly. Horse Bit Fit are changing this totally, because there are so many factors to take into consideration. Conformation of the horses mouth, jaw, poll, ears, and how pressure points from Bits and Bridles can really affect a horses way of going, behaviour, and biomechanics. We take away all the guesswork, the feeling that your not getting anywhere, and the expense.

"Horse Bit Fit" Consultation is a system of checks,  concentrating on these pressure points from Bits, Bridles, especially Nosebands, making adjustments as necessary, giving advisories, and explaining to Riders how these affect the Biomechanics  of the horse.  With this we can transform horses, for lots of amazing reviews from Clients visit our Facebook Group Horse Bit Fit, or click Reviews. If a horse is not relaxed in its mouth, tongue, jaw, poll, and neck, the horse will not be able to engage shoulders, work through the back, and use hindquarters properly.

 Nearly all napping, evasions, being strong, behaviour problems, not tracking up, poor transistions, are caused by discomfort, very often from the Bit and Bridle Stable Consultations, Ridden Consultations, Talks, and Clinics are available, at the venue of your choice. LEARN MORE >

Struggling With Brakes - Read This

Horse Bit Fit Think Less Is More

Meet Jack, his 2 legged mum messaged me today...
- today, I wore my bit, recommended by Carol, for the third day, and went hunting, where my horse normally pulls for an hour & the old brake system used to fail when asked... Not today - to fully test the new Bit, I did not wear a noseband & got numerous comments about being "undressed"...
I was on a virtual loose rein the whole 4 hours, was able to jump without any fighting or rushing at the few jumps & watched whilst others w...ere struggling with a variety of gag's & nosebands with cranks & flashes...
I can't thank you enough to introduce me to the HP Lip Relief snaffle. My horse says a huge THANK YOU... so happy to have met you and ask you for your advice... Our flat & jump lesson yesterday was the best ever - jumping on a loose rein w/o the normal fight or rubbish paces.. freedom at last
