About Anna Minogue
The Bit Fitter
After 30 years of owning and riding horses, 15 years of Veterinary Nursing and a Qualified Equine Dentist since 2011, Anna developed her new passion “The Bit Fitter”.
Anna was the first Australian to undertake education at The International College for Professional Bit Fitting Consultants (ICPBC) in The Netherlands.
Having gained significant bit fitting experience overseas, she is eager to assist more horses and riders.
She has also undertaken education with The Society of Master Saddlers in the United Kingdom, Horse Bit Fit UK, Bombers bits, Neue Schule’s “The Academy” and others.
Anna was also a guest presenter at Equitana 2022.
Unlike almost all other Bit Fitters, she does not work for a bitting company, nor is she a bit retailer so you will always get an unbiased opinion of the many brands she works with.
Why bit fitting?
Seeing countless horses with mouth wounds caused by bits, talking to frustrated riders and finding a lack of reliable information, Anna decided something had to change!
Her goal as a Bit Fitter is to help make horses more comfortable through the education of riders.
She aims to teach an ethical approach to using bits and bridles, increasing comfort and performance.
“I have discovered a huge disconnect in the horse world when it comes to bits. Much of the ‘knowledge’ out there is extremely outdated and often incorrect. The positive I take away from this, is that horse owners are always wanting to know more!” Anna Minogue, the Bit Fitter
What clients are saying about About Anna Minogue
I contacted Anna about a bit fitting after Bodi had got quite strong on the cross country course. We tried a few different bits on him to work out which one would be most suitable to give me some more control. The very next day I had a show jumping clinic With Guy Creighton and Guy said he’d never seen Bodi jump so well and be so responsive. I’m grateful for Anna for taking the time to work out what would be suitable for Bodi.

She was awesome! I was considering selling my pony until Anna came out to do his teeth and then asked to see his bit. He used to flick his head a lot but since she came he hasn’t done it once! Her dentistry and the new bit changed him over night! He’s now perfect! So grateful for her
