What bit does my horse want?
No matter if you ride dressage, jumping, eventing, or look for a bit for the everyday ride, we will have something that will fit your horse perfectly. But how will we know?
We work with pressure points, and to ask certain types of questions, we will understand what your horse prefers. When you find the right bit, that last piece of the puzzle, you have been struggling with fall into place.
Every horse reacts differently on various pressure points inside the mouth. If you have a horse that continually pulls, leans, falls behind, or in any other way seem uncomfortable with the bit, you won't receive the genuine and honest feeling of Harmony.
Today, we know the importance of using the right equipment. A bit is one of, if not the most important one to get right. We take this very seriously and will continually improve and make changes to put the horse well being in focus. We work closely together with riders, veterinarians, farriers, Bit fitters, dentists, equitherapist, etc. Every angle of view is as necessary, and it is so exciting to see how everything is connected. A tense tongue is a strained muscle. But never forget, you can never get rid of the pressure, you can only place it somewhere else. But what you can do is to put less tension in the mouth at the beginning. Let us guide you, and let's step up the game.
Brands that we work with include: Trust Bits, Bombers, Fager and Neue Schule

Comprehensive Saddle Fitting
A proper fitting saddle is as important as having the correct bit and bridle for your horse.
At Equi-Boutique each horse has their own profile where each horses saddle history can be found in the archives. When touring with our bit fittings almost every saddle we see does not fit the horse. Riders need to understand the importance of a well fitting saddle and also need to know what signs to look out for when the saddle is not fitting properly anymore.
Crease marks over your horses shoulders are one of the biggest indications that your horses shoulder is blocked.
