Why fit a Bit and Bridle?

As responsible horse owners, we always make sure that our horses are as comfortable and healthy as possible to help perform at their best and lead happy, healthy lives.  Correct farriery & hoof care, correctly fitted saddles, feeding and management regimes, enough exercise to remain fit and capable of working demands… this takes a dedicated team of farriers, physios, vets, saddlers, etc.!

… but what about bits and bridles?

Correctly fitted bits and bridles, for the horse, are as vitally important and can affect performance and comfort as much as an ill-fitting saddle. All horses should be provided the opportunity to feel as comfortable as possible to be able to perform at their best, from top-level competition horses to happy hackers and everyone in between.  

Like humans, every horse has unique anatomical differences that need to be considered for correct fit and performance. Read on to learn how I approach this to find the most suitable bit and bridle fit for your horse.

Meet Alex

LANTRA Accredited Bit and Bridle Fitting Consultant through Horse Bit Fit Academy.

Horses have been pivotal in my life ever since I can remember. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have worked with a vast range of horses for over 20 years, from first childhood ponies right through to working with International level competition horses – Stallions and youngsters included.

Bit and Bridle fitting entered my life when I was having difficulties with my lovely but highly strung gelding – having carried all the usual checks we were still struggling to communicate and work together, so after lots of research I came across a Bit and Bridle Consultancy. This was a completely new concept for me, but an avenue I was completely invested in exploring. The resulting visit completely changed my previous conceptions of correct Bit and Bridle fit and highlighted the importance of understanding your horse’s head anatomy.

Many years later, following formal training, here I am as a fully LANTRA qualified consultant! I am passionate about supporting my clients along this venture, helping partnerships to find what is often dubbed the “final piece of the puzzle” on their way towards enhanced comfort and performance.
