Racing Bits

When choosing a Thoroughbred or Standardbred racing bit, it's always best to start soft. Our most gentle bits options are leather, rubber and foam covered. If you're looking for a more traditional style, dee rings, half cheek snaffles and mullen mouths can also be found here. Experienced trainers, riders and drivers with specialized horses may need a little extra steering or stopping power with a chiffney, ring, puller spring, snake or overcheck bit. Tongue ties, bit burrs, latex bit wrap and other accessories are also available. Even more riding bit options can be found in English Bits.

Triabit Ring Bit 5 in

Better Performance by Design!

The Triabit is a unique new bit design that allows race horses to perform better by relieving them of the stress and discomfort associated with traditional bits, ensuring that they settle easily in races and that they don't waste energy in running.

The Triabit was developed to be kinder and gentler on the horse while, at the same time, providing better control for the rider. Horses relax quickly on the Triabit because it is more comfortable than ordinary bits and it does not pull into the sides of the horse's mouth. The patented design allows the benefits of a snaffle without the pinching (and subsequent choking down) that can result from other bits.
