Remote Bitting Follow-Up Consultation


Add to Cart:



Sometimes, I am too far away to be able to travel to you or it's easier to discuss any bitting issues with me remotely.

Send me videos of you riding your horse, showing the issues you have, with your comments and what you would like to improve / aim for.

Please tell me the bits you have tried in the past and why you think they didn't work.  I will need the make and style of the bit you are currently using and its size please.  Please include any other information that will help me advise a solution.

It is recommended that your horse has had its teeth checked recently and also that a veterinary physio has confirmed there are no physical issues.

Thanks for your texts and hope I'll be able to help remotely.
I will charge £30 (instead of £50) for the assessment and this will preferably involve looking at videos of you and comments with what you are looking to improve.  Whilst I will see things on the videos, you know yourself how it feels when you're riding.  We can talk over the phone or via email /  messages to agree the next action from there.
I will need to know the bit you currently use and its size please, plus history of other bits you've tried and why they didn't work.  It all helps to understand what your horse is going to like / not like before I send you something to try.
I do try and send the bit that I think is going to work for you, but my fee is reduced as I am unable to make tweaks and changes that I might want to do during an on-site visit.   Should the first bit prove unsuitable, please let  me have details / videos of the problem for me to discuss with you.  A follow up charge of £20 will only be made if I feel I can help you remotely a further time before possibly changing the bit.  No hire charge will be incurred if the first bit is exchanged following a remote consultation within 7 days.
Here's detail of the bit hire available either following an on-site consultation or as standard with a bit purchase:

Bit Hire

You pay the full price of the bit plus any P&P (if not free).  The minimum hire period is 7 days (from receipt to return post date) to allow you to fully try and test the bit.  If the bit is satisfactory, you need do no more than enjoy it!

Should the bit prove unsuitable, please return it in a clean and undamaged state at any point during this period, either with proof of posting or using recorded delivery to ensure safe arrival here.  A credit will be issued less the original P&P, £10 for the initial 7 day hire (£25 for combination bits) and £5 for any subsequent 7 day periods, 

Damaged bits may not qualify for a refund, so please ensure that great care is taken during the hire period.  A white stretch bandage or latex bandage if not allergic could be wrapped round the mouthpiece as a precaution. These can be supplied with the bit if required.  For hygiene reasons, certain bits cannot be returned, eg rubber / nylon bits.  I will advise you if this is the case.
