OPEN TO ALL what to expect: I like to start the day with a short informal General Bitting talk which is designed to make the group think about their own Horses and what sort of issues we may encounter when we look at a Horse to re-bit it. Anyone is welcome to listen to this free talk At each talk we will discuss: General considerations before we change bits. Conformation of the inside of the Horses mouth Conformation of the Horses Jaw and Head Pressure points both inside the mouth and outside on the head Conventional Bit designs and how they work in the Horse's mouth More comfortable Bit designs and how they work in the Horse's mouth. How to understand Resistance How to fit Bits and Combination Bits. How to select the right bit for your Horse How to transition him into his new bit successfully After the talk we will look at each Horse in turn access conformation discuss its training and bitting history and then ride it in the bit it is normally in and then change bits maybe once or twice to see if we can achieve enough difference to merit a change of bit. I charge £65 per Horse and it takes at least an hour per Horse to do
