So in the past few weeks my horse will itch her lips during a 40 minute ride ran quite a bit. It gets annoying during the ride when she tries to do it. Is there any powder or something I can put on her lips/mouth area to help relieve her itching during our rides? Thank you!

I would say not itching but reacting to the fit of the bridle or positioning of the bit. Have you checked both? Pictures of her with them on so we can see your set up?

Also consider the tightness of the lower band of the flash noseband on her mouth, or it could be pinching the bit, and a build-up saliva on her mouth.

Have to agree with Caledonian. Any or all of those three from that picture. Top two are tightness of chin strap and how bit is held. Both contributing to the third.
