Tack Adjustment Basics
"Just because it goes on your horse's head, doesn't mean it's fit for your horse."

Improperly adjusted tack can negatively affect your horse’s performance. In this video brought to you by Professional’s Choice, Patrick Smith shares some tack fit fundamentals: how to correctly adjust your bit, curb chain and tie-down so your horse can move comfortably and safely.

“If I’ve learned anything about bits in my career, it’s the importance of making sure that once I put ’em on, that they’re set up for success rather than failure. Make sure that everything fits for that specific horse.”
