June 4, 2018 (Devon, PA) - From "bucket baby" to the Dixon Oval: the story of the elegant young filly, Kolaborate CS, cannot be told without the inclusion of her favorite training tool, Gumbits. In this yearling's first time off her home property, she placed fourth in the prestigious Devon Horse Show's Hunter Breeding division, and was a total pro in the hands of handlers Gretchen Ober of Cavallo Sporthorses and the filly's owner, and 10-year-old hunter derby and junior hunter champion, Kat Fuqua. Known affectionately as Lobo, Kolaborate CS began life as an orphan and overcame her resulting anxiety and fidgety mouth with the help of Gumbits.Click for Full Article
Blenheim, New Zealand (May 23, 2018) - Gumbits' tasty morsels have been softening equine mouths and encouraging salvation in around the world, and the US-based maker of "chewing gum for horses" recently welcomed another international addition to their selection of retailers and to their line up of internationally successful riders. Gumbits are composed of an all natural combination of sugar and beeswax, and double as both a treat and a training tool. Their taste and texture encourage soft chewing, salivation, and a better connection with the hand. Tense, grinding, or dry mouthed horses in particular benefit from the addition of Gumbits to their training program. U25 Grand Prix dressage rider and New Zealander Tessa Van Bruggen is the latest in a long line of international competitors to discover the Gumbits advantage.Click for Full Article

I was thrilled to see GumBits in the December 2015 A Horse Box and couldn't wait to try them. Turns out someone else at my barn wanted them too, and my sample disappeared one day out of my grooming tote! I can only assume some kid got hungry... I really don't know. The folks at A Horse Box were nice enough to send me more samples to try out on Champ, so here's our review on GumBits!
First thing I did was put one of these in my mouth. I figured I needed to see what exactly I was feeding Champ, and the best way to do that was to eat a couple. The little candy balls were hard on the outside (harder than I expected) and waxy on the inside. They are slightly sweet and minty. Not bad! The waxy insides stuck to my teeth a bit and I chewed around a bit trying to get it off my teeth. It took a while, but it finally wore off.Click for Full Article
Wellington, Florida (December 22, 2015)-- GumBits, a sponsor of the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, was pleased to wrap up a successful season by awarding their Happy Horse Harmony Award to Dressage professional Adam Steffens and his mount Regatta at the White Fences Polar Express Dressage Show this past weekend. Mares hold a special place in Steffens heart- especially mares that are nervous and need a little extra help doing their best in the show ring. Although good tests and blue ribbons are a perk, for Steffens, there's nothing more rewarding than helping a anxious horse learn to love being competitive again.Click for Full Article
