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'!).

Why We Love This

Bit Keepers attach from top of full-cheek bit to bridle strap to keep cheek pieces upright. Bit Keepers are sold in a set of two. Brown leather.

    Bit Keepers is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, the brown is a bit dark These bit keepers were fine, did want to let others know that the brown keepers were much darker than the photo - they were nearly black. I'm using it on a schooling bridle so it isn't a big deal but if someone is considering using it for a show bridle, wanted to give you a heads up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit keepers Not much to say about bit keepers, other than these are affordable, high-quality and get the job done. Easy to put on (and/or take off) and hold the bit in place.
    Date published: 2016-11-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice bit keeper My OTSTB Beaux is very fussy about his bits, so this bit keeper is a mandatory pieceof equipment. The stitching is nice, the leather is of good quality, and fit my bridle quite well. I've only been using it about a month but so far so good. The keeper stays in place, it has not popped off under normal conditions, and I can highly recommend this bit keeper for use with your full cheek snaffles.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color, style, quality are great! These bit keepers are great! The quality is great and they are nice and dark. They fit easily into my bridle and over the bit. The only downside is that they slip off the top of the bit - a bit of tape will fix that though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job I think these are a little bit longer than ideal, but seem to do the trick. Provides a level of safety that is needed with a full cheek snaffle. They've held up well for 1 month of consistent use.
