Essential BitTape from Equifit is the bitwrap that you have been searching for! This is a discreet and comfortable silicone (latex-free) wrap to help prevent bit pinching and create a gentle feel that horses love. Essential BitTape is a new approach to a long-trusted training aid that equestrians have relied on for decades.

The Equifit Essential BitTape is versatile and easy to use; cut the bit wrap to your preferred length. The innovative wrap is designed for multiple uses depending on the application and style of the bit. The bit wrap can be used as an alternative to bit guards, preventing pinching on the delicate corners of your horse's mouth. It is also commonly applied to cushion and soften the bit and/or the curb chain for sensitive horses. You can even use it for bit repair--creating a smooth surface on chewed-up bits.

The Equifit Essential BitTape comes packaged in a resealable plastic bag to keep out dirt, air, and moisture.

Size: 1” (2.5 cm) W x 120” (304.8 cm) L

Directions for Use

  • Start with a clean & dry workspace to ensure proper adherence.
  • Cut your desired length of BitTape. The average horse bit takes approx. 6-12", but this can vary with application or size of bit. 
  • Gently pre-stretch the BitTape material. 
  • Place the starting edge on the front of the bit to avoid creating a bump against the horse's tongue.
  • Overlap the BitTape approx. 50% onto itself as your wrap. 
  • Once wrapped, squeeze the material firmly to ensure proper adhesion. 
  • If you see signs of wear or BitTape begins to loosen, cut it off, discard & re-wrap the bit with new material.

Tips & Tricks

  • Take your time! Once BitTape has adhered to itself, you will not be able to unwrap & re-use material.
  • For best results, apply the minimum number of layers required (over-wrapping may reduce durability).
  • Do not leave horses unattended with a wrapped bit in their mouth for an extended period of time.
  • BitTape will generally last multiple rides, depending on the efficacy of application, the number of layers applied, the style of bit, how much the horse chews & other factors.
