Feeling

The bit is the link between your hands and the horse's mouth. To make sure your horse understands your instructions properly, you should think of the following points:

1. The good health of your horse's mouth; The bars should not be damaged. There are no flaws or wolfs teeth needing the attention of a dentist. The shape of the palate might forbid you to use bits with high ports.

2. The good condition of the bit; Adapted to the level of training and physical abilities of your horse (musculature and flexibility). It brings nothing to demand the impossible.

3. Critical self-assessment; Did I gave the correct hand action in accordance to the expected result? You also have to choose the correct size for your bit: If it is too narrow, it will pinch the mouth, create discomfort and even injury. If too wide, its action will be imprecise. 2 wrinkles have to appear in the corners of the mouth.

The leather coated FEELING bits are ideal to help young horses accept the bit, and for horses which do not accept the contact of metal inside their mouths. The leather coated stainless steel FEELING bits are simple bits which encourage the horses to salivate and relax. Like resin or rubber bits, their lifespan depends on your horse and the shape of his teeth. In order to make the bits last, we recommend to wet the leather before each use and rinse it thoroughly afterwards. Regular application of food oil will keep the leather from becoming hard and dry. Leather coated stainless steel FEELING bits are in full grain cow leather with vegetal tanning, at no risk for your horse.
