As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).
Bit Blanket - The Electric Bit Warmer.
Warm that bit! During the fall and winter months, horse bits become dangerously cold. Cold bits cause pain, discomfort, numbness, and damage to the soft tissue in horses' mouths. These clear dangers also lead to additional problems: The numbing effect that a cold bit has on the lips and tongue will result in less sensitivity to light bit pressure -- something no rider who values the importance of clear and effective communication would want. The negative results of the cold-bit experience can also lead to problems with bridling, creating a head-shy horse that's resistant to being bridled. This is a concern with horses of any age and should be of particular concern when introducing a young horse to the bitting process. Experts agree that making each aspect of the training process as positive as possible is critical to successful and effective training. Warming a cold bit, therefore eliminating that negative association, is an important step in the positive training process. Bit Blanket makes that step easy.
