No more head tossing, lugging, tongue over the bit or laying on the bit!
Take away the pain from inside the horse’s mouth, take away the nutcracker action and take away the pinching on the side of the horse’s mouth. No more confusing signals. The Pee Wee bit provides horses with a comfortable and relaxing experience
The Pee Wee is light weight and has a passive action. When the signal is directed it comes from the outside of the lower jaw with a pressure that is easy for the horse to understand and move away from. With even pressure down onto the bars it encourages the horse to flex down at the pole, which means the horse is down over the bit and is in a better position to work rather than getting behind the bit and having its head in the air.Smooth turns, better stops, happier horses that quickly understand what is being asked of them. No more bit sliding through the corners of the horse’s mouth as direct applied pressure comes from the side of the horses face.
The Pee Wee is wonderful for starting young horses as it takes away painful pressure and gives the horse a direct signal that is easy for the horse to understand so their first experience is a good one. The Pee Wee is excellent for any type of discipline, from recreational riding to carriage driving.
The Pee Wee sits differently than any other bit. It requires you to lower your cheek straps a few holes when fitting up the bit to your existing bridle. There should only be a slight bulge and no wrinkles in the corner of the horse’s mouth. This is because the Pee Wees mouth piece sits further forward over the tongue and bars than conventional bits making it very comfortable for the horse.
The chin strap on the Pee wee bit is designed to hold the bit in place. It has NO curb action and puts no pressure on the chin. Our packaging makes it easy in fitting up the bit as the coloured labels indicate where to place the straps and reins of your bridle.
On one of Dave’s visit to the USA Dave was asked to have a look at a bit designed by his good friend, Pee Wee Stevenson, a rancher and horseman in New Mexico which he constructed in his workshop. Pee Wee was riding his young Quarter horses around in an effortless and relaxed style. Dave could clearly see the difference this bit was making to uneducated young horses. With Pee Wees encouragement Dave brought the original bit home to Australia and developed it further to production standards and named it the Pee Wee. Today this unique horse bit is used in every horse discipline around the world today with great results.
Step 1- Lengthen your cheek straps at least 50mm / 2" if you are replacing a snaffle with the Pee Wee. The Macs Equine Pee Wee bit requires longer cheekstrap settings than most traditional bits
Step 2 - Place the bit on a flat surface with the mouth bar facing away from you. Standing over the bit attach both cheek straps to the exact position of the RED labels on the large rings.
Step 3 - Now attach your reins in the exact position of the BLUE labels on the large rings.
Step 4 - remove the YELLOW labels which secures the Large rings to the side bars in the correct set up position. Your Macs Equine Pee Wee bit is now set up correctly on the bridle so you are now ready to bridle up your horse.
Step 5 – When the cheek straps are set at the correct length and the mouth piece is sitting correctly in your horse’s mouth it is very important to ensure you have NO creases in the corner of the horse’s mouth. The mouth piece should only be applying enough pressure to create a small bulge in the corners of the mouth without creating creases.
At this time you should also ensure that the chin strap is set at the correct length. You should be able to comfortably fit two fingers between the chin strap and the horses chin. This strap only holds the bit in a neat position and stops the bit turning.
