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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

    The Original Bit Butter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisturize rich Easy to use. Thick, waxy in jar but goes on smooth. A little goes a long way. Horse likes taste.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses like it! The horse seem to like it and it smells wonderful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pony is in love I bought this to make my mini's new driving bit more appealing and to protect his tender mouth. It was terribly funny in that he followed me all over the place after I had put it on his mouth and then the bit. No problem getting him to take it. All I have to do is open the jar and he comes running..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells Sooooo good I bought this product after my horse had some dental work done and was hesitant to bridle. It was only supposed to be temporary to add some flavor for acceptance. This product has worked so well in allowing my horse to accept the bridle (for taste) and being on the bit! It smells soooo good and I use it every ride. The rides I do not use it I can 100% feel a difference. Keeps horse mouth moist and soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for a mare with very chapped corners of the mouth and she loves it. She actually looks forward to us bridling now. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! My mare has never been soft in her mouth and sometimes hold her tongue to the side. I've tried different bits, different bridles, every possible adjustment to her bridle. I've had the dentist and vet check her. Bit butter has made a bigger difference than anything else I've tried. While it hasn't solved every issue, she is much more accepting of the bridle. I rub it all over the bits and the corners of her mouth. Even when it wears off, she seems happier. She's stretching into the contact more and is much better in the contact.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this Smells nice, goes on smoothly. Seems to soften horses mouth and make rough areas less rough, however not much difference when riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse Chap Stick Bit butter is an amazing aid for those that need a little help with bit placement. We use it at the corner of the mouth because of the dry winter weather. Our horse uses a happy bit and the cold weather seems to make his mouth dry. We place a little at the corners as a prevention . Keeping the outside supple and no crusty corners.
