I have been using gumbits at the recent shows. Lombardi, who has usually a pretty dry mouth, started to chew the bit a little more. It's a great product.
I've always wanted to try GumBits and I was happy to find them in the gallops saddlery trailer at the event at Rebecca farm! I used them on my horse, Super Socks BCF, who tends to get cracks in the corners of his mouth due to dry mouth and also grinds his teeth, and be generally tense or explosive in dressage phase of events. I'm happy to report that he did great, and put his best dressage test to date and ended up winning the CIC***! There were a lot of contributing factors in his performance, but I was happy to have the GumBits on board keeping his mouth moist, and I didn't hear any teeth grinding either! Thanks again!
Augusta Iwasaki places third at Washington International with True Colors ridden for Forget Me Not Farm. "He was really really good today. With the GumBits he felt very calm, he wasn't looking at anything and felt very relaxed," Augusta said. Trainer Stefanie Mazer says, "it is very hard for a seven year old Pony to walk into an arena like that but the GumBits gave us the relaxing results we were looking for!"
I have been using GumBits for the past ten years because it helps keep my horses frothy in the mouth. A happy horse makes me happy!
So we tried the gumbits with two of our vaulting horses. Well what can I say , first impression is very positive we tried it in training in the morning as you said I mixed it with some feed and gave after putting bit in. Then we tried it for the Local show one of the horses was completely different, a very positive outcome. Dublin the horse I vault on was definitely more submissive and concentrated on his work, so we are very happy! GumBits is now part of our everyday program. Many other international teams are asking a lot about trying them too.
I am an equine veterinarian in Ocala, FL and I have been using GumBits for 7 years on my grand prix dressage arabian mare. I broke and trained her myself, and about the time we started competing FEI she began to grind her teeth. Of course, I explored every medical and training option with no change. I found GumBits online and decided to give it a try. My mare has completely stopped grinding and has a happy mouth during training and competition. I have never seen any negative side effects and I continue to recommend them to friends and clients. I would be happy as a veterinarian and competitor to give my testimonial if you want. Thanks and feel free to contact me.
