I have been training and learning to be a professional bit and bridle fitter. My training has been with and is continuing with Neue Schule in association the NS Academy. I am one of only 12 people in the country who now hold the new title “Lantra Certified Bit Fitters” Alongside bitting and bridle fitting I will also have the avansce synchronicity system which will be incorporated into bit fitting consultations if wanted but also available on its own.
Charlotte will firstly go though a questionnaire relating to your horse, its routine, tack,any historical or new issues, Or simply to find a bit that your horse goes best in, the levels of control needed and discipline legal if required. I will move onto a full head and mouth examination.
We will then tack your horse up for the ridden part. I will look at your existing bit and bridle. From here you will have a chance to try out a selection of bits to establish which type of mouthpiece your horse finds the most comfortable, and we can then discuss the levels of control needed from there. This is a very important part of fitting a bit to establish the working angles and correct fit. It’s amazing how a small change of mouthpiece can make your horse move through the shoulder more freely and seek the rein to work in a rounder frame.I also have available, the Avansce synchronicity system.
“The avansce system reins measure the strength of your contact in each rein 100 times a second. Collecting this rein tension data enables an in-depth analysis of the rein contact which exists between your hand and your horse’s mouth in different gaits during exercises. Synchronicity assesses a combination’s ability to maintain a high-quality communication channel through the rein.”I am a independent bit fitting consultant and will be able to give fitting advice on most brands of bits and bridles including bitless bridles.
For now I will be retailing Neue Schule bits and in time I hope to to stock other brands.
Bitting consultations will be held at Kings Sedgemoor EC and I will also travel to your yard. If I feel you are too far away I will happily recommend another qualified bit fitter in your area.
I will be happy to do talks or demonstrations to clubs or organisations.
A consultation will last approximately 1.5hrs per horse/pony
