Overview

Why We Love This

Horses love the new sensative bit for a variety of reasons. The one piece design prevents a one sided squeezing or pinching of the the tongue, as well as painful irritations of the palate. It enhancres confidence of the horse and riders hand because of its quiet and comfortable positioning. Ideal for the schooling of young or difficult horses.

Favorite Features:

  • Made of innovative anti allergic plastic rather than cold hard steel
  • Slightly arched and flattened mouth piece ensures even pressure on tongue and mouth corners
  • Integrated flexible steel cable reinforcement provides soft and easy control of the horse

Acavallo Sensitive Bit is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it My ultra sensitive horse LOVES it! The difference is amazing! I wish it wasn’t one size fits all though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit, but it won’t fit. I like the bit but it won’t fit on any of the 8 head stalls I own! The slots to attach the cheek pieces and reins are so narrow that even my finest hunt bridle the leather was too snug and made it stiff/inflexible. I also have a training headstall with clips, but those wouldn’t fit either. I really want to try it on my 2 yr old but I’d have to buy a bridle to fit the bit… probably going back, disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Us I was a little skeptical to try this but with the great reviews and the price, I had no reason not to. My horse has never loved any bit but seems to accept this one. Works for his petite face and low palate. Not sure if I could show in this, but will cross that bridge when I get there

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse LOVES this bit! I've tried a lot of bits on my fidgety Morgan gelding. We do endurance (bitless), but work dressage in the winters. On the long lines I can see the difference in his acceptance, pushing into the contact and stretching over the top line. He is far more willing to do this in this bit than any other I've tried. I think he values the stability and softness of it. One downside, if you do a lot of ground work like I do, the areas where you can clip things could use improvement. My longe line snap is too large to fit into the bit in anyway. Thankfully my side reins, draw reins, and riding reins are narrow/small enough to fit. I plan to use this bit on the youngsters I start also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Destroyed after two rides My green horse crunches the bit so I've been trying different things to see what he likes, getting the feeling he doesn't like metal in his mouth. He seemed happy with this bit, but he continued to crunch (mostly on the ground, not while being ridden) and pretty much destroyed the bit in two rides. If he hadn't been able to grind away at the surface so easily (it's now very rough and I can't use it), I would still be using this bit. The fit was perfect even though my horse has a wider mouth. One issue is that the holes are very small, so attaching to some bridles is a challenge, and you can't run the lunge line thru and over the head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit for sensitive tb! I purchased this bit for my sensitive ottb who rides in a bittless bridle normally. He LOVES this bit! Every other bit I've tried there is head flipping and general nervousness. This bit he is nice and quiet does not mind the contact and happily takes it when putting on the bridle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small overly sensitive OTTB Mare I was skeptical of this bit, but thought wtf, I’ll give it a try. My young ottb Mare is super sensitive. She goes well enough on the lunge, but ridden she chomps fiercely at the bit. Any movement became a feedBack loop for her. After a blue coated bit, there were grind marks where she had fussed at it. However, this sensitive bit has helped her calm down and accept a bit and contract. She even opens her mouth for it. She has not marked the soft plastic at all. She is relaxing. However, I will say as the bit has no movement in it, it takes Not just a soft hand, but an educated one as well. This bit was genuinely a surprise. Worth the try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awkward Great quality and appreciate the out of the box thinking for this bit. The cheek pieces are fixed making to awkward while riding and lack of size options didn’t work for my horse. Love the concept on hope they continue to innovate new bit options.
Date published: 2021-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Bad I’m trying to find a bit that might encourage my sensitive horse with a past bad bit history to seek a more consistent contact. I have never seen anything like this and was pretty skeptical, but I’ll try anything once. I fully expected him to totally reject it. He actually seemed to like it and was very quiet in his mouth. I have a feeling with a few more rides he would have really started to trust the bit. Unfortunately, after 3 rides I began to notice rubbing on the side of his face near the bit/headstall junction. Another reviewer commented that it rubbed their horses faces, too. It may be fine for a narrow faced horse, but my guy has a pretty beefy chin/jawbone area. I cannot bring myself to continuing it. Too bad, as I think it really might have worked out. Super lightweight. I would recommend trying it, but only if your horse has a narrow face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! I bought this for a horse that avoids the bit before the jump. She keeps her jaw relaxed and stays soft before the jumps now. I started on the bottom slot for rein attachment and keep it there for XC but flat and arena jumping I put it on the less leverage slot. Super soft and is much happier. No fuss! It is so light weight.
