The western bit is a type of equine tack used in horse riding. Usually made of metal or a synthetic material, the bit is placed in the mouth of a horse and rests on the bars of the mouth (region where there are no teeth). It assists a rider in communicating with the animal while under tack. It is held on a horse's head by means of a bridle and has reins attached for use by a rider. We have a selection of bits specially designed for western riding.
