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

's special formulation provides soothing care to replenish moisture for dry, callused, unresponsive areas of your horse's mouth. Enriched with a “Mouth Softening Complex,” this palatable blend of natural butters, essential oils and unique flavor encourages acceptance and improves focus on the bit!

    The Original Bit Butter is rated 4.2174 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy and smells great! I have never used a bit butter before but even though his bit is the proper size it was rubbing on one side. I tried the Bit Butter as directed and within a few days I noticed that the rub was disappearing. It is easy to use, smells great, and my horse seems to like the taste as well. What a great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cure for teeth grinding I used bit butter years ago with my OTTB gelding and it helped with him finding the contact. So my new horse a Hanoverian gelding who has a problem with teeth grinding (it's a bad habit) and he has a bit of a dry mouth, and doesn't really chew on the bit or produce any foam. So I thought why not give bit butter a try. The results have been amazing, Fagan's mouth is so soft and he foams and drools like crazy. The best part is he has stopped grinding his teeth. It's has been an essential part of getting him ready for his ride, Fagan loves when I rub bit butter on his lips and corners of his mouth, and it has made it easier to put his double bridle on he takes the bits easily. Highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked! After a week of using bit butter, the "calouse/hard spots" at the corner of the mouth healed. Continuing to use to prevent coming back. I had tried other remedies, nothing had worked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I have been using this product for about two weeks now and I absolutely love it! It smells great and my horses actually like it! Some other buyers have said how small the container is, which yes it is small, but alittle goes a long way with this product. You really only need a small amount to do the job. I have used this product daily for about a week and now a few days a week. It did exactly what I was hoping and smells great too! I highly recommend this product!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Allergic Reaction Unfortunately I didn't read the ingredients list before purchasing this product. It has mango butter in it. While my horse loves the taste and now willingly takes his bit, I am HIGHLY allergic to mango and broke out in contact dermatitis all over my right hand. On steroids to clear it up. Live and learn. I can't recommend it for that reason and because the very small jar, think sample size, is outrageously priced. Bit wipes are a better value.
