Bridles and Bits

Bridles generally come in three sizes, pony, cob and full size, although they do vary depending on where they are made.

The bit is the art of mouthing, there are many types of bit, such as snaffle (jointed, egg-butt, unjointed). 

There is the Pelham and Kimblewick, all serve a different purpose. There are bits to stop rearing, bits to make horses arch their necks, lower their necks or heads, stop the horse putting their tongue over the bit and so on. 

The wrong bit can upset a horse, again the correct bit will allow the horse to feel content and trusting. 

Much depends on the bit choice and experience with this subject will help make the important correct decision.
