SOLVING THE BIT FITTING MYSTERY

  • Is your horse heavy in the contact, afraid of the contact, chewing the bit too vigorously,having tension,   tongue or mouth issues?

  • Have you purchased a bit or bridle thinking it would be the perfect answer to your horse’s

  • Problems only to discover it’s worse than the original tack and now you are stuck with it?

  • Ever wished you could try on a multitude of bit or bridle options to see which your horse

  • prefers without having to purchase them all?

THIS IS THE CLINIC FOR YOU!

International rider and trainer, Kim Gentry from Bits and Such will be at Roy Yates Horse

Training in Fruita, CO on July 29 and 30 with a huge selection of bit and bridle options to try.

Prior to trying out options, Kim also will do a mouth analysis on each horse to identify issues

that may be creating bit-fitting problems. This is a great educational opportunity to learn proper

bit fitting, even if you are not currently having bitting issues with your horse.
