Horse Bits

First, what is a horse bit? Horse bits are the components in the horse's mouth that attach to the bridle and assist the rider in steering and directing their horse. The horse bit and bridle are responsible for much of the communication between horse and rider. Riding with the wrong bit can lead to behavioral problems, miscommunication, and general discomfort. To keep it from irritating your horse's mouth bits must be in good repair, properly fitted, and shaped to accommodate your horse's mouth. Here we will give you a “horse bit guide” to help you choose the right bit for your horse.

Western Bits

We carry a wide selection of western horse bits in all styles and levels of pressure, from snaffles to high ports. We also offer incredibly affordable prices on all of these high-quality bits, so you can invest in horse bits that you can count on without blowing your whole tack budget. If you‘re looking for a name brand western bit without the hassle of visiting a brick and mortar tack store, Schneiders has you covered.

Correction Bits

These are training bits for horses as they help riders train their horses more effectively. This equine bit gives you a bit of extra leverage while in the saddle, magnifying pressure on the chin groove and bars without releasing the tongue.

Medium & High Port Bits

These bits lessen the tongue pressure while increasing pressure on the palate to encourage flexing at the poll. However, if a rider with “heavy hands” uses a high port bit, horses may react negatively. Be cautious when choosing horse bits with ports as they can hurt the horse‘s mouth when used aggressively.

Shanked Snaffle Bits

These bits require less pressure from your hands and are instrumental in classes where limited hand movement is preferred.

Mullen & Low Port Bits

A milder low port bit that puts less pressure on your horse‘s palate than a medium or high port bit.

Myler Bits

Some of the most efficient bits in terms of communication between you and your horse. Myler bits are both comfortable and effective.

Spoon Bits

These bits have higher ports that lay a bit flatter between the tongue and palate. These bits are designed for more refined response in cues for western disciplines.

Silver Arabian Show Bits

These bits have beautifully etched shanks in sterling silver overlay or sterling plate, available in various mouthpieces, all with an attached slobber bar.

O-Ring Bits

These bits increase bit movement and puts pressure on the bars and the tongue. O-ring bits are ideal for teaching lateral movement and improving body suppleness.

D-Rings Bits

These bits are instrumental in developing lateral movement and your horse‘s suppleness. The D-ring of the bit encourages your horse to respond to your rein aids.

Hackamore/Gag Bits

Specialty leverage devices used in training, at home or show. Hackamores rely on pressure at the cheeks and nose while the gags slide motion transfers pressure to the poll.

English Bits

Finding the proper bit is essential to achieve the desired communication between you and your horse. We carry a wide selection of english horse bits in all styles, with something for every discipline.

D-Ring Bits

Instrumental in the development of lateral movement. The D-ring of the bit encourages your horse to respond to your rein aids. Top choice for Hunter riders.

Loose Ring Bits

Helps develop lateral movement. Ideal for young horses. Top choice for Dressage riders. Some horses wear these bits with a bit guard to keep the loose ring from pinching the corners of the horse's mouth.

Eggbutt Bits

One of the best horse bits for new riders or young horses. A good alternative to a loose ring snaffle.

Full Cheek Bits

Offers better support and can help develop flexion and lateral movement. Bit loops are added to concentrate pressure onto the tongue and bars of the mouth.

Happy Mouth Bits

The latest technology is highlighted in these soft, flexible horse bits. Readily accepted by horses because of the Apple scented space age polymer.

Kimberwick Bits

Use D-shaped rings plus a curb chain to increase leverage. Commonly used for English riding and driving and can be used by younger riders who have trouble controlling a pony with an ordinary snaffle bit.

Bradoon Bits

Used with curb or Weymouth bits on double or full bridles. Bradoons sit above the curb bit putting pressure on the tongue and regulate horizontal flexion and impulsion. Used for FEI Dressage or in some breed class.

Weymouth Bits

This bit falls into the category of double bridle horse bits, it is used with a bradoon and a double bridle to promote flexion and encourage collection while using the most subtle of cues. The double bridle‘s bits attach to their own sets of reins to increase the quality of communication between horse and rider. Used for FEI Dressage or in some breed class.

Pelham Bits

Operates as both a direct action and leverage bit.

Curb Bits

Long shanked curb horse bits are used with a bradoon to make up a full or double bridle on gaited horses. Curb bits put pressure on the bar and palate via the curb chain and regulate vertical flexion.

Half Cheeks

Half cheek bits are most used in driving or training. Lower arm prevents the small rings from being pulled through the mouth.
