About BBA


Bit Bank Australia is here because we are all on the same journey with our horses, learning and striving to do better, as well as having the comfort of our horses the very top priority.  There is so much information and so many styles to choose from, so BBA makes it easy to understand and helps guide you to a bit choice that will suit both your needs and the needs of your horse.  We are all individuals, and we all have different needs.  BBA is here as part of your support team to offer support, advice and the very best service.

Bit Bank Australia's Values are:

- Continuing Education
- The sharing of Knowledge
- and above all, the Welfare of the horse
- along with the Safety of Australian riders. 

It is from these values that Bit Bank Australia has sprung from, and continues to grow.

I own and operate a successful horse agistment centre in the Adelaide Hills SA. I am extremely passionate about providing 5 star horse care, comfort and health. When my son was born I made the decision that I would find a career that would allow me the flexibility to work from home and care for my son while also continuing my journey to provide top quality horse health and comfort. Bit Bank Australia is the answer! I have been working with horses from a young age - from harness and thoroughbred racing, to polocrosse, rodeos, pony club, endurance, dressage and hacking. There isn't much I haven't come across or tried! I am committed to constantly learning and bringing you the most up to date information and equestrian products from around the world.

Whatever your question or problem, I am looking forward to helping you and your horse.

Keep Calm and Canter on!

I started Bit Bank Australia on my return from travelling and working as a professional event groom in the UK. In 2009, recognising a distinct lack of understanding, knowledge and service in mainstream equestrian stores when it came to assisting riders buying bits, I started Bit Bank Australia. 

It began with just 2 brands, and the immediate positive feedback from riders across Australia was astounding.  Clearly there was a need to share knowledge, offer specialised advice and listen to the problems riders were facing when looking for a new bit for their horse.   I am proud that Bit Bank Australia was the first to offer a 30 Day Trial on all bits sold and a personalised consultation service to riders across the country, and New Zealand. Today, I am pleased and honoured to be able to watch the business grow and develop, and start along exciting paths under the new management, with the lovely Charmae Bell.
