Choose selections from the top brand names, including Herm Sprenger bits, patented Coronet Adjusta bits, Myler bits and Robart pinchless bits and Chuck Bits. 

We also provide bits for specific breeds, such as Walking Horses, Paso Finos and Icelandic horses. When you are looking for a special horse bit to suit your horse training problem, you will find it at a price you can afford. 

Types of Horse Bits

Horse bits are one of the most confusing pieces of horse tack — after all, it seems like there are endless options to choose from. Finding the right type and fit is key to your horse's comfort as well as the amount of control and communication you'll have when riding.

There are five basic styles of bits that we Carry here at Horse Tack Co.:

1. Snaffle Bits

Snaffle bits are one of the most common types of bits. Snaffle bits come with either a solid mouthpiece, a two-piece mouthpiece, a three-piece mouthpiece or multiple links. There are different ring designs to choose from as well, such as an egg butt, full cheek or D-ring.

Regardless of the mouthpiece or ring type, all snaffle bits are direct pull bits. That means that when a rider pulls on the reins, the pressure goes to the horse's mouth instead of using any kind of leverage action. 

2. Curb Bits 

Unlike a snaffle bit, a curb bit does rely on leverage to communicate. So, when a rider pulls on the reins, the horse will feel the pressure both in their mouth and against their poll. There are various types of curb bits with differences in the shank and the mouthpiece design. 

Shanks come in a solid cheek or swivel cheek in various lengths and patterns. It is important to keep in mind that the length of the shank determines how severe the bit is. The port, which is the center part of the mouthpiece, is another aspect of the bit to consider. This piece, which can be in a triangle, half-moon or half-square shape, is designed to offer tongue relief. 

3. Gag Bits 

Gag bits are designed to encourage a head-lifting action, making them effective for horses who lean on the rider's hands. They work by delivering pressure to the horse's lips and poll. They are commonly used for training or disciplines such as show jumping, hunters or polo. 

Because they can be severe if misused, these leverage bits should be used only by experienced and quiet riders.

4. Hackamore 

There are various types of hackamores, ranging from bitless to mechanical styles. True hackamores, such as a sidepull or bosal, are great training tools that don't rely on a bit for communication or control. Instead, the pressure is applied to the horse's face in key areas of the jaw and nose.

A mechanical hackamore, on the other hand, uses leverage. Many trainers and endurance riders rely on these types of hackamores.

5. Combination Bits 

Combination bits are essentially a combination of a snaffle and a curb bit. Elevator bits, Kimberwick bits and pelhams are all considered combination bits. They use a D-shaped ring and keep the reins securely in place to engage the shanks.

 Because this style uses both the direct and indirect pressure of these two types of bits, riders are able to be more precise with their cues and apply specific types of pressure when training and riding.

Western and English Horse Bit Mouthpiece Options

Within these styles of bits are many different types of mouthpieces. Each acts differently on the horse's mouth, tongue, palate, jaw and crown. Why so many different styles? Because each horse has its own personality. Some high-spirited horses may need more control. 

However, take care not to damage the horse's mouth — if the mouth suffers any permanent harm, your choices will be limited and the horse will have a negative association with the bit. In the case of "hard goers," the right combination needs to be worked out. A severe bit is not usually the answer. When you invest the time in training and learn to trail without causing your horse any pain, the results are always rewarding. 

Horse Tack Company notes how our bit designs will act on the horse's mouth and how their shapes will react to you handling the reins. Shop Horse Tack Company and be confident that you will find the best horse bit for your riding needs. 

How to Choose a Bit

When you are narrowing down your options, it's important to consider the type of riding that you will be doing. Will you need a snaffle or a leverage bit? Be sure to also take into consideration the type, temperament and age of your horse as well as your level of experience and the training your horse has. 

Once you've determined the type of bit, be sure to select the right size. Bits are measured by the width between the two cheek pieces. If the width is too small for your horse, it can pinch, while an oversized bit could slide around in your horse's mouth.
