30 Day Trial


All horses are individuals. What works for one horse, may not work for another, even with similar breeding, age and education. Sometimes the best way to work out the right bit is just to experiment. Bit Bank Australia's 30 Day Trial lets you do this with confidence.

On most purchases from Bit Bank Australia you have the option of taking a 30 day trial*.  This ensures that after a few rides you aren't left with another bit your horse doesn't like  and which will be collecting dust in the "bit bucket".

How does it work?

If you are interested in trialing a bit in our range, please contact us directly either by email or phone. We will then contact you within 48 hours for a consultation with you about your horse and your needs from a new bit. If you then decide to purchase a bit to trial from our range you will be shipped the bit within 24 hours (if in stock) and will then have 30 days in which to ride in the bit like you normally would.

If, for whatever reason, you or your horse are not happy with the bit, simply return it within the 30 days for a refund less our flat-rate Trial Fee of $50 per bit.

Why does it work?

Through careful questions and attention to your needs throughout the conversation, we aim to be able to offer you a bit that will suit your horse, discipline and assist in solving any training or behavioural issues youre having.  From something with a bit more control, introducing a double for the first time, or just looking for a nice comfy bit for your horse we can help you through the maze of the many bits currently on the market.  

Don't buy another bit without browsing through Bit Bank Australia!

And if I know what bit I want?

If you are happy with your selection, simply shop online to receive the bit at the price listed on the website, mostly with delivery within 2-3 days. If the bit is the incorrect size, please return it within 14 days (registered post recommended) unmarked, unused and cleaned with the original packaging to exchange for the correct size.

*Happy Mouth, Nathe, Trust, Beris, Makebe, Meroth, Bomber Synthetic and Sprenger Duo bits are not available on the 30 day trial offer due to their softer, more easily marked composition.  Bits on sale are also not available on the 30 day Trial service.
