Bit accessories from MHS Equestrian
Is the mouthpiece of the bit of your shetlander or miniature horse hard in his mouth? Then choose to wrap the bit in with a bit bandage. The soft latex material makes the bit comfortable in the mouth of your miniature horse. A bit bandage is an excellent solution for horses with a sensitive mouth. Even when your horse has wounds in the mouth, the soft latex is a relief for him.
Applying a bit bandage
It is important to wrap the bandage lengthwise around the bit. If you have a bit of 10 cm, for example, always wrap pieces of bandage 10 cm long horizontally around the mouthpiece. This way you provide the bit with an even layer, which is most comfortable for your horse.
The latex bandages have a long service life. It is important to replace the bandage regularly for hygiene reasons.
Bits for horses with a sensitive mouth
If your pony has a sensitive mouth, you can also consider another bit instead of a bit bandage. MHS Equestrian offers leather bits, especially for horses that are less tolerant of stainless steel or copper.
The FRA leather bit, for example, is made from specially selected leather that molds perfectly to the mouth of your horse. To optimize this process, we recommend immersing the bit in sunflower oil for fifteen minutes before first use and then applying it to your horse. After fifteen minutes you can adjust the bit again.
To keep the bit flexible, the leather bit can regularly dip into oil.
