In the UK a few bit shops offer a trial service and the bits can be returned.

Its not in our budget because my dad just had shoulder surgery and will be out of work over a month. I haven't shown in over 3 months and the shows we do are very small, less that $8 a class. Small shows.
I put this thread up to see if anyone had any suggestions about what we could practice for, if that makes sense. I hada show last weekend but it was hunter and eq, but we had a rotational fall 2 weekends ago and she stepped on my leg, so we didn't go.
My mom also contacted haflingerhorses.com and they said the biting at the bit was caused by a stress like a bit that didnt fit or was very harsh and used incorrectly. That problem is solved.

Champing on or mouthing a bit can be just something baby horses do or very unschooled ones.

She's almost 13 and trained, but hyper. Could be habit. She used to drive, so maybe had a harsh bit there?
