Great timing and great bit
Finally found a bit that made my horse happy. Customer service was awesome!! Rachel was so helpful and responded to my questions asap. It was truly a pleasure to do business with Dapper horse.
My young horse is now making steady relaxed contact using this bit. I was using a regular straight mouthpiece Mullen mouth eggbutt snaffle before. My horse didn’t hate it but I could tell it was too thick and I could see her putting her tongue against her bars. Using this bit I no longer see her tongue against her bars. Her neck and jaw including the hyoid area are more relaxed which tells me the straight mouthpiece on the previous bit was putting too much pressure on her tongue. She is happily stretching her neck forward and down to reach into contact. This is my first purchase from The Dapper Horse. I called with questions. The person who helped me was great. It’s rare to find this kind of customer service these days. I will continue to buy from The Dapper Horse based on this experience. Plus I like to support smaller businesses.
This is the only bit I will buy now -- I'm currently in the process of moving all of my horses to this mouthpiece with different cheekpieces for different needs. The difference in my horse since switching to this is uncanny! She has always struggled with accepting contact and has naturally high carriage. We have done so much work on topline, teaching her to carry herself nicely, etc., but I still had issues with head tossing/mouth gaping/overall discomfort with any bit pressure. Since switching to this, that has completely dissipated and I finally feel like my work has paid off. The shape of this makes total sense to me and this is now the first bit I will always put my horses in!
