I can't have a bunch of bits, because I would only ever use 3 different kinds, lol. Full-cheek snaffle, D-ring snaffle, and a medium port cavalry curb bit. All I need to train and show. :) But I love to look at all the pretty bits at the big stores.

If I had to guess 50+

5+ spade bits, with different spoons, heights, rollers, braces and cheeks.
About 5 half breeds with different cheeks, acouple with tongue relief
A couple salinas mouthpieces with different cheeks
1 correction with short cheeks
1 square port, short cheeks
10+ snaffles many with different mouthpieces to accommodate colts preferences
(Plus a small pile of of bosals and two rein outfits, but technicaly those are not bits)

Those are ones hanging as outfits. That does not include the tubs I have collected over the years that I don't use that came in trades or bought.

Wow, those are awesome collections!

I voted 20+. I don't know for sure without counting them, but that's my best guess. I can't help it, I love buying different bits just to try them out. And my horses are so good about riding in whatever I put in their mouths. I think I could ride them in almost anything. And yet, I am still looking for the "perfect" bit for each horse. I just love bits, can't help it.

Tons. A whole drawer full and then some. Most of them still have tags on because I found them for a song...

I voted 50+ because we have a bazillion between me and my mom.....All over the trailer, in my room, in buckets in the tack shed, in all the trucks, hanging on racks, on headstalls....It's ridiculous. But we do use them all. Not necessarily on our horses though.

Just one actual bit. It's some kind of walking horse bit, from what we guessed. It's basically a Tom Thumb with 7 or 8" shanks. We found two of them, brand new, in a box of spare bridle parts and old bits at the summer camp I work at. We stole them because they were cool looking and just so nobody could use them on our horses.

Otherwise I own a sidepull and am borrowing a Little S hackamore.

If I had a horse that rode in a bit, I would end up with a huge collection because I think they're neat, but I don't, so I can't justify buying them right now.
