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'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! 4 oz. Made in the USA

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE Bit Butter! Always use it with the Double Bridle... prevents any rubs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well My horse was getting sores on the inside and outside corners of her lip. This product seems to have helped the sores heal and now that I put this on before I bridle her it seems to have prevented the sores from coming back. Some reviewers have complained it is very thick, I think it has the consistency of Chapstick. It is a little pricey but it seems like a little goes a long way so I think that one container will last for quite awhile.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, but disappointing This did not increase my horse's tendency to mouth the bit and when applied on the corners of his mouth, did not offer much protection. It has the consistancy of day old frosting--very clumpy and waxy. Way to expensive too. A clunker of a product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I have only used this products a few times, but it SMELLS REALLY GOOD!! And my mare tends to get a bit of a chapped lip going on around the bit so it seems to be helping.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not loving it. Overpriced. The consistency is very waxy and not easy to spead and the first day I used it my horse got a rub--I had been using Vasaline petroleum jelly. I could buy a year's worth of petroleum jelly for what this costs--and the Vasaline works better as a preventative. Would not buy again. Way too much money for an average product. Not bad, not great but my horse did like the taste.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this product and my horse doesn't seem terribly intolerable of this either. She does try to run away when I try to put bit butter on in the corners of her mouth (She kept getting cuts) but she tolerates it. My friend's horse on the other hand LOVES it.My horse also used to get bad cuts in her mouth always (so much so that I had to ride in a hackamore for like a month) but now, she doesn't at all! If she does, I am confident that the Bit Butter will help me ride without hurting her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cracked lips My horse has super sensitive skin, including his lips. His lip split open once, and it has been a continuing battle for over a year. I have used vaseline in the past when riding. Bit butter feels good, smells good, and WORKS! I put it on his lips before each ride. I have only used it for 2 weeks, and his lips are already looking much better!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps with teeth grinding. . . While my horse will still grind her teeth, when this is on her bit, it is not as loud and she does it much less. It definitely helps. However, it seems to wear off in about an hour.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
