As part of the clinic I will walk through a typical bit fitting session and discuss what I’m looking for during the session.
Head and Oral Assessment
- Feeling for Sensitivity – tmj, nasal process, poll, teeth, hyoid, chin groove
- Smell mouth and nasal passage
- Assess bars, bone spurs and structure
- Assess palette height
- Assess height of interdental space
- Look at commissure of lips for rubs or cuts
I will go over the pros and con of the various materials used in today’s bits. This is an awareness piece and will arm participants with knowledge when they select their next bit.
Action of the Bit
Both Class 1 and Class 2 bits will be discussed. How they sit in the mouth (initial angle) and what happens inside the mouth upon rein contact (working angle).
Also discussed will be bit interferences in a double bridle and what to check for.
This is rein contact analysis with reports that assess the contact. It assesses Rhythm, Consistency, Contact and Balance of both the right and left rein. The force meters embedded in the reins collect data is blue toothed to an iPhone. There is an algorithm that smooths the data and calculates the rhythm, consistency, contact and balance metrics. All the information is uploaded to the cloud for viewing
