103 pages including b/w illustrations. This is one of a trio of books (The Saddle, Bitting and Training Aids) which combine to form a practical manual covering the origin, action, use and recommended fitting of a very wide range of items within the three areas. Written in a clear, readable style and well-illustrated throughout, the books should be of interest to all horse-owners and riders and of value to examination candidates, providing as it does a sound understanding of the subject. This book looks at bitting, with five principal headings, beginning with an explanation of the development of bitting systems, culminating in those currently in use. The function of the bit within the combination of rational aids is defined and is followed by an examination of the equine mouth conformation as a factor governing choice. The bitting groups and the patterns which are available are all clearly explained, together with details of the action of each and their suitability to the purpose and the stage of training. Particular attention is paid to bridle fitting, construction and materials and there is a clear explanation of the influence of bitting auxiliaries (nosebands and martingales) on the action of the bit. Also included is a short section on common bitting problems and another on cleaning and maintenance.
