Simon Reynolds: Blame lack of knowledge, not bits *H&H VIP*

  • Opinion

    I often get asked what bit a horse should go in for the show ring. In open classes, it is common for a double bridle or a Pelham to be worn. I always say, start simple. Look at the snaffle that you school your horse in at home and maybe use the same mouthpiece in a simple Pelham. Always start with an elasticated curb chain.
