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'!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticed a difference after 1 use Just used this one time and noticed a difference in my project horse who has a hard mouth and always throws his head. After use, he was more supple and giving after one use!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basically horse chapstick I've been using this on the corners of my horse's mouth after I ride to help keep them from cracking, and he likes it to the point of opening the corners of his mouth when he sees me with the jar. However, I haven't noticed any difference in bit acceptance when I use it before I ride. I would recommend using this if your horse is prone to having cracks or splits on the corners of it's mouth, but not as something to encourage bit acceptance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a huge change in foam Not a really huge change in foam development or suppleness, but I appreciate the lubricating factors, and my horse seems to enjoy the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on me and my horse My friend got this for her tough mouthed mare and ended up using it on our lips, hands, elbows, etc! Smells great and works great! My horse had a bit rub from some bit experimentation and healed quick using but butter. Highly recommend
