Ever since I was a child, my passion for horses has been an unwavering flame that has guided my life's path. From the early days of horseback riding lessons to pursuing an equine technique in management and horse care in 2017, my journey has been fueled by a deep desire to understand and care for these majestic creatures. As I prepare to finalize my levels of rider in the classic discipline, I have come to realize that the well-being of horses is a cause that lies close to my heart. Recently, I discovered the opportunity to make a significant difference in the world of horses through the intriguing field of bit fitting. In this blog post, I want to share my journey and the impact I hope to make.


A Journey Fueled by Passion

My journey with horses has been an ongoing adventure filled with learning, growth, and a profound love for these magnificent animals. The equine technique in management and horse care that I pursued in 2017 served as a pivotal point in my understanding of horses. It deepened my knowledge of their needs, behavior, and the essential aspects of their care. This experience only fueled my passion further, inspiring me to continuously seek ways to enhance their well-being.


Finalizing my Cavalier Levels

As I continued my journey as a rider, I embarked on the path of classical horsemanship. With each stride, I strove to improve my skills, seeking a harmonious connection with my equine partners. I dedicated myself to mastering the art of riding, aspiring to achieve the highest levels of proficiency. Through this process, I discovered that true horsemanship goes beyond technical skills; it encompasses a deep understanding of the horse's physical and emotional well-being.


Seizing the Opportunity

It was during this phase of my equestrian journey that I learned about the Bit Fitting course—a remarkable opportunity to make a difference in the world of horses. Intrigued by the potential to contribute to the well-being of these incredible creatures, I seized the opportunity with unwavering determination. Bit fitting, an intricate process that aims to ensure the comfort and effectiveness of the bit in a horse's mouth, resonated deeply with my passion for promoting equine welfare.


Making a Difference

Bit fitting is a crucial aspect of horsemanship that often goes overlooked. Ill-fitted bits can cause discomfort, pain, and even compromise the communication between horse and rider. By delving into the world of bit fitting, I aim to bridge this gap and help riders understand the importance of proper bit selection and fitting.

Through the Bit Fitting course, I am acquiring in-depth knowledge and practical skills that will enable me to assess and adjust bits to suit each horse's unique conformation, needs, and sensitivities. My goal is to promote the well-being and enhance the partnership between horse and rider by ensuring the bit is a comfortable and effective tool for communication.



My journey in the world of horses has been an exhilarating and fulfilling one. From my early days of horseback riding to pursuing education in horse care and management, my passion has only grown stronger. The opportunity to make a difference through bit fitting has ignited a new spark within me—a commitment to enhancing the well-being of horses and fostering harmonious partnerships between horse and rider.

As I continue my journey, I am excited to share my knowledge and experiences with fellow equestrians, spreading awareness about the importance of proper bit fitting and its impact on equine welfare. Together, let us strive to create a world where every horse receives the care, understanding, and respect they deserve.
