December 12, 2017 | Equestrian Ontario

GumBits are an all-natural chewing gum for horses that promotes the salivation process and eliminates teeth grinding which often can occur during the intense training of high performance sport horses.

Product Review: GumBits
April 8, 2016 | Decidedly Equestrian

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.

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.
