Different Types of Bits

Walk into any tack store and you will discover a wall of bits in every shape, size, and shank length imaginable. If you don’t understand how bits work, choosing the right one for your horse can be overwhelming. Those of you who know me know that I tend to keep it simple, but it is still good to understand how different types of bits function and why they are designed the way they are. That is whay I aim to do in this week’s video! I will describe the two main categories that bits fall into – direct pressure and leverage, then show you several examples of each. We will even use a real horse jaw bone to examine where and how the bit applies pressure in your horse’s mouth. After you watch the video, write a comment telling me what kind of bit you use and if you like it or you want to try a new one!
