How do I get the Bit Wrap to stick to the bit?

Wind the Bit Wrap around the bit, squeeze gently and hold for approximately 20 seconds. The warmth of your hand will soften the Bit Wrap enough for it to stick to the bit.

The bit wrap will begin to dissolve immediately. Some horses will try to eat it right away, and others will leave it in their mouth until it dissolves.

They are designed to fit any size bit.

How are they different than peppermint flavored wipes?

Bit Wraps are not intended to be used to clean the bit and do not leave lasting odors. They are different in that they are an edible treat and inexpensive to use.

How do I train my horse on the bit with the Bitty Bites?

We recommend that before introducing the Bit Wraps, you give your horse some of these tasty treats before inserting the bit into their mouth. Let them sniff and taste them so they'll become accustomed to the taste and smell. They will then learn to associate these with the Bit Wraps.

Can I give my horse the Bitty Bites as just a treat?

Sure, they love both the apple and the peppermint flavors. They are different than the typical cookie type treats that many horses are used to. We have found many horses love than more than their regular treats!
