Choosing the right bit and bridle is a vital part of creating a partnership with your horse. This book explains everything you need to know about a complicated subject in easy-to-understand text and with specially taken photographs. It looks at: different types of bit and how to fit them correctly; mouthpiece and cheekpiece designs and how they work; traditional and modern material and how to choose the right combination for your horse; which type of noseband to use; and how to fit a bridle correctly. The book contains advice on a huge range of subjects, from solving problems to bitting young horses, and emphasises that choosing tack must always go hand in hand with correct management handling and schooling.
