Bit bits for your horse

Bit bits for your horse

Curb bits are mostly only used in higher dressage and serve to refine the aids in higher lessons. Because of the leverage effect of the suits, curb bits have a significantly sharper effect in the horse's mouth than, for example, a simply broken snaffle.

Please note that we do not give any guarantee against biting. Please do not test the bit in the horse's mouth if you are unsure of the size, as we cannot take back bits with scratches.

Double bit - only for fine hands

The curb bit is an unbroken bar with or without tongue clearance, which should be chosen 1/2 to 1 cm smaller than the Underlay bridle. To the right and left of the pole, outside the horse's mouth, are the so-called trees. It is important that the side parts of the curb close close to the corners of the mouth. If there is too much play between the corner of the mouth and the side parts, the curb can block and, in extreme cases, tilt. The curb chain increases the leverage and puts pressure on the lower jaw. For these reasons, the curb and the curb bit only belong in experienced, calm rider hands. The curb is completed by a bridle, which is mainly used for riding. The curb bit is only used to refine the aids, which is why the

usually sag a little.

Dressage curbs

French curb / dressage curb

French or dressage curbs come with short or long suits, usually 5 cm or 7 cm. Curb bits with short suits are also called baby curbs. However, this does not mean that this species is "softer". The short suits naturally create less leverage, but the rein aids arrive in the horse's mouth much faster. With a long suit there is a little more leeway and you can dose the pressure in finer increments. Remember: the angle of attack that results from a certain shortening of the reins, the smaller the longer the suit is. This means that if you take the reins the same way, the "baby" curb acts much faster and thus also sharper. Basically, you now have to consider whether your hand is fine enough to work in millimeters and whether your horse needs more direct, clear help, or a little more time to think.

The only difference between the French curb and the common dressage curb is the shape of the bar. This is a bar that is only slightly bent upwards and does not have a tongue clearance. With all other curb bits, there is little to much tongue freedom. The freedom of the tongue is controversial these days. The FN represents the traditional idea that the "balls" of the curb put a strain on the drawer and that the tongue is covered by the tongue-free space, and that tilting when one-sided rein pressure should be prevented. The more tongue clearance the bit offers, the sharper the curb looks. In addition, the horse's mouth has to offer enough space, otherwise the curve will press on the palate. According to the latest findings, the tongue tends to be pinched by the freedom of the tongue and the horse does not have the opportunity to push the bit upwards with the tongue in order to counteract too much pressure. If the bar is only slightly bent, this acts evenly on the entire tongue when pressure is applied on the same side. With too much one-sided tightening, however, there is a risk of tilting.

Postal curbs

Post curbaries / Liverpool curbaries

The broken curb bits, which are also known as driving curbs, post curbs or Liverpool curbs, are an exception. They are used without a bridle. Driving curbs have up to three "eyelets", one below the other, into which the driving line can be strapped. Post curbs with two eyelets that together have the shape of a "B" are often used. The deeper the driving line is buckled, the sharper the driving curb.

Which double bit now?

Which curb bit you want to use depends on many factors. Are you and your horse so advanced in training that you have already obtained the so-called "curb license"? How much space is available in the horse's mouth? Observe the reactions of your horse to the respective bit very closely and find out which curb bit your horse prefers.

Curb accessories

Bradoons

Curb bits are almost always used in conjunction with a bridle bit. The bridle is similar in shape and effect to the normal working bit and is only 1/2 to a whole size smaller.

Curb reins

Curb reins are essential when using a curb bit. They are available as a flat version or round-sewn.

Double bridle

What is a curb bit without the appropriate bridle? Curb bridles always consist of an English noseband with two cheek pieces for an underlay and curb bit.

Chin Chains & Pads

Curb bits are always used with a chin chain in dressage. If you need a new chin chain, you can find it here.
