Without going into too much detail about equine dentition (there are other books for that), the teeth and their proper care are key to comfortable ... Occasionally, they can also interfere with the bit or be irritating to the horse.

As even a quick glance around a saddler shop or through a tack store catalog will show, the world of horse bits is both enormous and mystifying. The primary means of communicating with and controlling a horse, Western and English bits come in a bewildering assortment of materials, sizes, and shapes. Their descriptions—full-cheek snaffle, hackamore, high port, French link, Tom Thumb, spade, KK Ultra—are no less puzzling, and with new bits and refinements being produced every year, even the most experienced horseman must struggle to keep up with the state of the art. The Ultimate Book of Horse Bits will answer all your questions on the subject—and then some. Not only does the author and horsewoman Emily Esterson go into detail about all kinds of equine mouthware and how each is constructed, but she also explains how and why each works in the context of what the rider wants the horse to accomplish. Does your horse have difficulty bending or flexing? Suggestions and solutions to these and myriad other horse-and-rider problems will be found throughout these authoritative yet user-friendly pages. Whether a novice or expert horseman, every rider, trainer, or owner in any equestrian discipline will benefit from this book’s wide-ranging and practical information for years to come.

If you are considering reading this book, I would like to give you some advice. Please don’t wait for retirement to do some worldly travel and to seek adventure for two reasons. One is that you might not be physically able to travel at that point in your life, and the second reason is a narrow time span to seek adventure because old age will soon be upon you. So start living those dreams now and through the rest of your life. When you read this book, you will see how my travels, adventures, and my achievements have given me a vast wealth of cherished memories.

Gleason s Horse Book

The philosophy of this bit , being perfectly square , is that tho moment you pull on the reins the bit turns in the horse's mouth and throws his jaws open ; the curb strap doing its work throws the bit directly back from the jaw .
