Letter from the President As the sole proprietor of Bit of Britain, I want to thank everyone who has supported us not only this year, but at any point in the 20 plus years in which we have grown from a small racetrack supply store to a premier multichannel retailer of quality tack, apparel and stable supplies. While we have grown into a company with international reach through our catalog and website, I still wake up every morning ready to face the challenges that the new world of retailing has to offer. I don’t have all the answers, and I can’t resolve every issue. But I’m always here to talk to my customers and support you in any way that I can. We aren’t like other companies with deep pockets just looking to increase market share and maximize profits. Those who shop with us know that we strive to meet and exceed expectations through superior customer service. I know that I have loyal customers who appreciate our contributions to the sport of eventing and beyond, and I do my part to make sure that they receive the same support from us that I would want to receive as a customer. I take a hands-on approach to this business, and you’ll see that in our customer service team. Our tight-knit team answers questions and meets the needs of riders across the country and the world. If you have shopped with us in the past, I’m sure that you realize that I don’t offer any and all equine products to you. Bit of Britain only carries products that are tried and trusted by myself and that offer exceptional value and quality to you as a horse owner, rider and caregiver. Above all else, integrity sets us apart from the rest of the herd. I believe in my company, my products and my customers, and that will never change as long as I am the owner of Bit of Britain. John Nunn, President Bit of Britain • Tackoftheday.com HorseFroogle.com

Vests

"The fact that the Hit Air is not bulky is one of my favorite parts about the vest. I have no idea I have it on and when I crashed in it, it was like hitting a pillow. I was completely impressed." Doug Payne Advanced Event Rider Jacket shown inflated

Ride with full movement PLUS enhanced protection with this innovative safety vest!

ƒHit Air Jacket for Adults and Children

Originally created to help motorcycle riders prevent injuries during a crash, the equestrian version of the Hit Air inflatable jacket system is specifically designed to protect the neck, chest, back and hips in case of a fall. The Hit Air jacket is a lightweight vest that is worn over the top of a body protector and connected to the saddle with a lanyard and saddle strap (saddle strap sold separately). If the rider becomes separated from the horse, the lanyard cable pulls a pin from a CO2 canister installed in the jacket and inflates a bladder within the vest to help cushion the rider from injury. After deployment, the vest is completely reusable after the user discards the used CO2 canister and installs a new CO2 canister. Comes with one CO2 canister. Black. Adult: S/M (SV2 model). L/XL (LV model). Black. (2092) $419.00 Red, Royal Blue. (2092) $449.00 Child: (One size fits most, sizes 8-14). Black. (3433) $419.00 Red, Royal Blue.

Now comes with two CO2 cartridges!

48 | Bit of Britain FALL/WINTER 2012

The Point Two ProAir inflatable vest provides shock absorption, distributes pressure and effectively supports the spinal column so that the rider’s neck and trunk are protected in the event of a fall. To use the vest, the rider attaches the vest’s lanyard to a saddle strap at the front of the saddle after mounting. The lanyard enables full movement in all directions and is only activated if the rider is separated from the horse. When activated, the airbag vest inflates within 0.1 seconds and protects the neck, chest and coccyx. Even if the rider is 25cm from the ground when the vest deploys, the Point Two ProAir vest will be fully inflated upon impact with the ground. The vest is completely reusable by replacing the CO2 canister. The durable polyester fabric can be brushed or sponged down to remove stains. Includes saddle strap and two (2) CO2 canisters. Adult: Small, Medium, Medium Wide, Large, Large Wide, XLarge (2078) $675.00 Child: Small, Medium, Large (3432) $675.00 Additional canisters: 60cc for Adult S-XL and Child L, 50cc for Child S-M.

The Snuggy Body® is set to become a 'must have' in every equine's wardrobe...it's a HEADLESS OPTION, pleasing customers who don't wish for head coverage on their horse. Constructed of the same clever fabric as the Sweet Itch Hood and Rug, the Snuggy Body is breathable, water repellent, stops coat bleaching and protects from gnats, other insects, dust and dirt. Rest assured the Snuggy Body still comes as a two piece neck and rug combo for ease of fitting. The rug, with built in belly band, tail wrap and flap, is fitted FIRST. The neck then slips over the horse's head and is secured to the top of the rug with Velcro. The top of the neck sits happily behind the ears and is elasticated to prevent any unwanted visitors getting in. The mane area of the neck is lined with a seamless non stretch lining. As you can tell, Snuggy's attention to detail is second to none. Small straps are fitted to the withers and chest section of the rug to prevent gaps. The withers and chest areas are elasticated to prevent pressure. Three Velcro® patches are fitted to the rug and belly to stop gaps and a strong binding is run along the spine to keep the body of the rug in shape and prevent it slipping backwards. The Snuggy Body is a great blanket liner and turnout sheet as well as an "Overnighter" to keep your horse clean before the show and while you are on the grounds! Beige. 75, 78, 81, 84.

Loose Rings Stübben Golden Cheeks Wonder Bit

The Golden Wings bits are gentle, sensitive, and 100% pinchless, with no nutcracker effect. The revolutionary safeguard plates offer maximum protection to the delicate corners of the horse’s mouth while perfectly positioning the bit. In addition, they provide lateral stability to prevent the bit rings from being pulled through the horse’s mouth. 14mm mouthpiece. This bit creates a new rein effect that enhances communication by giving some of the benefits of indirect rein without bearing on the neck. It works directly on the lips and corners of the mouth on the turning side, while indirectly on the lips and bars on the side away for the turning hand.

MDC Ultimate Stirrup Irons

MDC Sport Stirrups

Based on an Italian design, the MDC Sport Line brings to the market a combination of features not currently available from any one stirrup manufacturer. MDC Sport Stirrups offer the look and strength of stainless steel, blended with the lightness of polished aluminum. The bright metal finish maintains an elegant and traditional look in the show ring. MDC strongly believes that stirrups that adjust to your body are better stirrups, and MDC Sport Line features three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees. This allows you to position the stirrup according to your personal preference, resulting in reduced stress on your ankles, knees, hips and back. The MDC Super Sport offers a world-class flexible hinge - a feature rarely found on wide base stirrups. They feature a wide base, non-slip aluminum pad, which provide a secure grip, but are less aggressive than “cheese grater” pads, which can cut boots, breeches, saddle leather and do not easily release in the event of a fall. 4¾” MDC Super Sport Stirrup (3359) $194.95 MDC Sport Classic Stirrup (3359) $174.95

More preparation time is lost, more competitions are missed, and more careers are prematurely ended because of lameness than any other condition. This book analyzes the causes, diagnoses, and management of the myriad causes of lameness. No other book covers this vital subject in such a comprehensive and understandable fashion. For that reason, no other book deserves a more prominent place on the shelf of anyone who owns, trains, rides, or drives horses. 1048 pages. (9580) $27.95

Former Olympian Jane Savoie demonstrates her systematic and highly successful method of teaching riders the half halt in the first DVD and continues the lesson into the second DVD through how to put horses on the bit.

In Part 2, Putting your Horse on the Bit, she discusses when to use the half halt aid, including when to put the horse on the bit: your horse will become more obedient, more graceful, and more athletic as a result of carrying itself predominantly with the muscles over its croup, back and top of its neck.

DVDs Retraining Racehorses – Back to the Basics by Tom Curtin

Going back to basics is important to all riding disciplines. In Retraining Racehorses – Back to the Basics Tom Curtin works with ex-racehorses and demonstrates key horsemanship principles to help the horses adapt to new careers. Tom decided to create this DVD in order to share his horsemanship technique and how well it applies to ex-racehorses. Too often, we hear people dismiss ex-racehorses as being too high-strung or crazy. “We have to work with these horses as individuals. Each one is different. They’re not machines that come with an owner’s manual. Horses have feelings — and we have to understand their needs.” In this DVD, you will see how Tom approaches each horse as an individual. With a steady emphasis on foundation work, he works with the horses where they are at that moment — and then builds from there to help the horses with their different needs. Over 3 Hours of Content!

In her new book, Riding Through, Debbie describes her system for success in dressage and relates her life story: “Riding through is a dressage term, something you strive for as you attempt to get your horse on the aids and moving back-to-front. You have achieved it when everything the two of you do together is one fluid motion, the ultimate of coordination and expression, in which the horse is maximizing his assets. But “riding through” has other meanings for me as well. I’ve learned to ride through hard times, on and off a horse, when I thought about giving up.

Ride Horses with Awareness and Feel

The common belief that riding a horse can happen effortlessly and naturally is dispelled in this training method from one of the world’s leading schools. The method teaches that riding is an activity that must be learned by both horse and rider through a conscious awareness that ultimately will become a subconscious ability, once the modern equestrian gains a “feel” for riding. Not purely a technical endeavor, a feel for riding is developed by learning to communicate with a flight animal and a herd animal, developing self-knowledge and self-control, developing body control, body language, and an independent seat, and learning to give effective aids by training with “questions and answers.” (860) $28.95
