How to Measure Bits

Mouth Size

We suggest using a piece of string to measure from one corner of the horse’s mouth to the other.

Mouth Thickness

The mouthpiece should ideally be 19mm (3/4”) larger than this measurement.

Cheek Length

A couple of wrinkles on either side of the horse’s mouth is a good guide that the bit is sitting in the correct place.

MATERIALS Stainless Steel Unless otherwise specified, all Zilco bits are made from 18/8 Stainless Steel

Gold Zilco Gold range of bits contain a special mix of copper (85%) and quality metals which produce a bit with superior strength. Guaranteed ‘nickel free’ reducing the risk of nickel allergies. The horse is encouraged to salivate through the activity of chewing. This is a material designed to discolour over time, further enhancing the effect of acceptance.

Sweet Iron Sweet Iron bits are designed to rust. This effect makes the bit become sweeter and further encourages acceptance of the bit by the horse.

Blue Steel Blue steel bits are an improved version of black steel (Sweet Iron), that causes it to oxidise quicker.

Zilco stock a vast range of bits for many disciplines. If you can’t find what you are after – let us know.
