Grinding?…. Problem solved!
These amazing little balls, from a specialist company in Atlanta, USA, are ‘candy for a horse’s mouth’ a god send for horse’s who can be difficult with the bit. When the mouth is agitated and tense grinding often occurs which can be a very hard habit to break. Grinding can even occur when horses are on a perfectly good contact, engaged and working in a correct shape. GumBits prevent as well as stop grinding and associated problems with the mouth.
Give a small handful, the equivilant of two teaspoons full, each time required. Feed to the horse before tacking up. They will last about 45 minutes or more, long enough to get through a schooling session or a warm-up and test.
Gumbits once chewed form a gel like film over the teeth that prevents abrasion of the teeth.
