Determination of the bit size of the horse
Like humans, a horse has a mouth, but they don't all have the same height or form! In this sense, how do you determine the bit sizes for the horse? Large horse mouthpieces or pines usually use a 5 1/2-6 in. muzzle. What is the best way to get the teeth into the horse's mouth?
A fold on the horse's corner of the jaws when the teeth are in place. Some of the material should be placed in your horse's jaws so that the mouthpieces on both sides protrude 1/4" (0.6 cm) beyond the horse's jaw. When the bit is too big, it sticks out more than 1/4" at the edges of the horse's jaw and slides back and forth when the bridles are used.
When it is too small, you will see that the coin is in the horse's jaws and the movable part of the cheeks to which it is fixed pinches. But if you attach a joint such as a D-ring or a ring bridle, wrinkles cannot form on the lip.
This should not be too high or too low to make your horse really feel unwell. Squinting the corner of the horse's throat or banging against the horse's tooth causes aches. Raise the horse's lip and look into his or her mouth to make sure the dentures are properly seated on the rods. Ensure that the dentition on both sides of the oral cavity is even.
The bit should not be pulled through the horse's jaws when using the rein. The horse is traveling behind the dentures. You might look like you're flexing the bar, but it can also be the horse's try to avoid the teeth! This is often seen with gaiters, which are rode with long shafts, kerb necklaces, cracked bridles, curbs and harbours.
A horse tries to avoid the dentition and escape the grief of a hard dentition. Horses in gait have a proverb that is "only a hard piece in hard hands"! "Alas, too many men are clumsy. Thumbs, ring snaffle, wonder bit and gags can also cause grated hide around the lips or around the jaw.
There are gaiters and we use elastic bands at the edges of the bit to avoid any friction when using a bit. Take measurements where the line is marked reddish. I use a scale made of elastic material to make my measurements. And I put the scale into the horse's jaws, from the edge to the cornd, and took the learned measurement.
I then examine the horse's jaws to see how the horse's jaws fit. 1 ) Wounds in the oral cavity, lip, tongues, etc. 2 ) Inflammations around the teeths or elsewhere in the oral cavity, 3) fractured teeths, bad breath, etc. can cause dental and gingival disorders, 4) some ponies have a meaty tongues or a low roof of the gums, 5) pony mouths have an exaggerated occlusion, other ponies have a submerged or perished pine (under bite) which is often called the ape's pine or sow's mouths.
Deviations can also affect the selection and adjustment. I' m watching the horse react. The right set of teeth can make the big deal between you and your horse! Keep in mind that each horse has a different setting, a different athletic style, a different workout, a different "luggage" from earlier experience, etc.
