What size bit do I get my horse?
Best Answer: How to Measure for a Bit
To find the right bit sizes for a horse or pony, you should consider both the length of the mouthpiece and the width of the mouthpiece in combination with the conformation of your horse's mouth. Length of the Mouthpiece - The length of the bit corresponds to the width of your horse's mouth. This measurement is usually provided in inches and fractions of an inch, such as 5" or 5 1/2". When attached to an appropriately adjusted bridle, the bit should rest comfortably at the corners of your horse's mouth. In general, the bit rings should not press very hard against the horse's face, indicating that the length is too short. A bit that is too short may pinch the sensitive corners of the horse's mouth. Conversely, if you see one-half inch or more of the mouthpiece on each side between the lips and the bit rings, the bit is too long. A bit that is too long can slip sideways in the horse's mouth, causing soreness or becoming ineffective.
