Ridden Bit Fitting

A ridden bit fitting is suitable for those experiencing some issues under saddle, or those wanting to obtain peak performance.

The following is included:

  • A discussion about the horse’s history (saddle fit, dental, body work)
  • A thorough physical body check, oral examination to determine suitability of bits for your horse’s individual oral anatomy.
  • A fitting of your current bit and bridle, with suggestions and adjustments made to improve fit and comfort for your horse.
  • A ridden session allows me to see the horse’s current issues and rider’s concerns. You will be able to ride in several bits chosen to suit your individual partnership.
  • Feedback from me to help determine the best bitting solution for your horse, and a plan to move forward with your training.

I can do bit fittings for all disciplines. Only one can be done at a time.
*A safe, flat area must be available for ridden fittings

Duration- 1.5-2 hours
Price- $150-$200 snaffle, $220 double bridle.

Stable/Static Bit Fitting

A stable bit fitting is suitable for riders who are looking for assistance with bridle and bit fitting. It does not include a ridden element, so not suitable for those with specific bitting problems or those who would like to try multiple bits.

The following is included:

  • A discussion about the horse’s history (saddle fit, dental, body work)
  • A thorough physical body check, oral examination to determine suitability of bits for your horse’s individual oral anatomy.
  • A fitting of your current bit and bridle, with suggestions and adjustments made to improve fit and comfort for your horse.

Duration- 30-45 mins
Price-$55

Skype/Video Advice

If a physical bit fitting is not possible, I can assist you through video.

I need a ridden video of your horse exhibiting the problems you are experiencing. On both reins, in walk, trot and canter if possible.

I then need some photographs of both sides of the face with the bit and bridle on. Photos of the inside of the mouth wearing the bit are very useful.

We can then arrange a meeting via whatsapp, skype or videolink to discuss the issues. I can also email for those with hearing difficulties.

Duration- skype call 30-45 mins
Price- $55
