I had several customers ask me about a popular trainers “bitting system”- this is our version, which we have tweaked, and I believe made even better. Essentially this is a 16′ long ‘rein’, with stainless steel conways and buckles on both ends. It is flat on the ends and round in the center, so it sits comfortably on your horse. It is American made, out of heavy, Herman Oak harness leather. This tool is designed to teach the horse to give to the bit, and round his frame. Comes complete with a professionally engineered training surcingle made of durable nylon with PVC neoprene lining. The rings and dees are correctly positioned for attaching training aids. Girth adjusts on both sides to equalize pressure.
To use: Find the center of the rein, placing it over your horses poll. Then run one snap thru the bit, from outside in towards the chin. Take same end between your horses leg and then up to either the ring on your saddle, or your surcingle. Using the conway buckles, adjust so that the horse is comfortable. Ask your horse to move forward, allowing him to get used to the feeling of pressure, teaching him to yield to the bit. You can tighten as needed, by simply adjusting the conway buckles. A very effective method of teaching the horse to give to pressure. Also included is a string to tie around the horses neck (where the breastcollar would go) This keeps the reins up and will prevent the horse from stepping on them.
