My Horse University and eXtension HorseQuest invite you to a FREE webcast on bits and bitting for horses.

Webcast: Bits and Bitting

Date: September 22, 2009

Time: 7:00 P.M. EDT

Speaker: Dr. Holly Spooner, West Virginia University

Summary:
Selecting the correct bit for a horse is dependent on a number of factors including the horse's level of training and the rider's experience level. Knowing how a bit functions and distributes pressure on a horse's face is essential for determining what bit is appropriate. This presentation will discuss the difference in direct versus leverage action of a bit, how the diameter and shape of the bit effects the bit's action, and will describe the pressure points on the horse's face that are affected by bits and hackamores. In addition, bit selection for different stages of training and training problems will be discussed.
