Bits are an essential part of your horse tack, and necessary no matter which riding style you use. Bits are placed in the interdental region of the mouth where no teeth reside. They help the rider communicate with the horse and make it easier to send messages concerning direction and movement without pulling too much on the reins. Available on eBay from reliable sellers, there are several types of bits for use in the horse's mouth. Thinner silver bits are more decorative for shows, but apply more pressure in the horse's mouth. A larger bit does not put as much pressure on the mouth, which allows for a more relaxed fit. People design western bits for an even more relaxed fit with many designed to allow your horse to graze. Horse bits are important for communicating directions to the horse, but there are many available for different purposes. Your horse will always feel the most comfortable no matter the task with a horse bit.
