When to use your BitClips
Our innovative BitClips are an invaluable tool to remove pressure on the bit. They connect the bit with the side ring of the bridle to keep it steady in the horse's mouth and therefore helps to avoid damage underneath the tongue. We recommend using the bitclips for young horses or riders with an unsteady hand.
