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'!).

    The Original Bit Butter is rated 4.1923 out of 5 by 26.
    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

    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.
