Some bits I’ve given to friends . . . some bits I sold (they were so expensive!) . . . and others have disappeared.
I try to keep the bits that worked for particular horses. There’s a big twist full cheek that I used on my first event horse, Dudley; the single jointed loose ring snaffle that I bought for Bogie; and several bits that I used for Kroni. Those bits have a lot of memories attached to them. And they are a lot easier to hold onto than saddles!
What’s in your bit box? Do you hold onto the bits from horses you had?
