A wide variety of bits for horses

Horse bits are available in a variety of designs and different materials: titanium, stainless steel, copper, rubber, Aurigan or leather. Whether you choose a single or double-jointed bit, a snaffle, an eggbutt bit, a pelham, a full cheek snaffle, a hackamore, etc., would depend entirely on your horse, your skill level and your riding style. 

Horse bits and their functions

In our guide, we will show you which bit is best for your horse.

The right bit size

Measuring the size of your horse’s oral cavity is paramount to ensuring the Horze bit fits properly. To do this, you can use the 2-finger test developed by Sprenger. Hold your index and middle fingers together and insert them in the horse’s mouth, where the horse bit would be inserted. If the distance between the upper and lower jawbone is small, i.e. if you feel pressure on both fingers, then the recommended thickness is 14-16 mm. If the distance between the upper and lower jawbone is greater, you will hardly feel any pressure on your fingers and the recommended thickness is 16-18 mm. (Guide to bit selection, step 3, Herm. Sprenger GmbH Metallwaren)

When you know your horse's bit size and how you two work together, nothing can stand in the way of good cooperation between you.
