Bit keepers

I was told I should get bit keepers. I use a full cheek snaffle and I haven't had problems with the cheeks getting caught on anything. Are they absolutely necessary? [/i]

No they rn't necessary but they r good as ur bit get older it will start to have a lil play and could pinch in that case you do.

We've never used them but I can see the reason for them. I found this: http://www.raraequus.com/edu1/pages/...k_snaffle.html

Where can you bit bit-keepers? My mom rides in full cheek and has problems with it.

Any tack store. Try statelinetack.com, doversaddlery.com. Just about any tack shop w/ English tack should have them

The article Vida posted says they keep the bit in a better position...I wonder if I should try them.

I haven't had any particular problems with Hoover, other than he can be a stubborn butt very occasionally...but what horse isn't? The only think he has ever gotten the bit caught on was the roof of his mouth, when he was trying to pull it through. He will try me sometimes, but the majority of the time he's soft as butter and only requires finger pressure to move him.

Do you think I should get him the bit keepers?
