Product Description

Bit Butter  The best kept secret this side of the Atlantic… now out!

* Moisturises & heals the mouth * Restores feeling & comfort * Encourages acceptance of the bit

This special formulation from America provides soothing care to the mouth. Bit Butter replenishes moisture and restores feeling in dry, callused, unresponsive areas of the horse's mouth. Enriched with a "mouth softening complex" that includes Mango & Shea Butter, Peppermint & Soybean Oil, Vitamin E, Bees Wax & Jojoba. It encourages acceptance and improves focus on the bit - also avoid rubbing of the mouth and helps heal where skin is already broken.

Tip: Apply freely to corners of the mouth and along underside of the bit before every ride.

Precaution: Always test product on small area prior to first use.

"Wow what an ace product. I couldn't believe that something so small could make such a big difference. My trainer thinks it's my improved riding....I can't bring myself to tell her!" Ali W, Cambs

"My horse was getting a rub between his flash noseband and his bit. I was really pleased with the results of Bit Butter. The rub never came back and my horse actually seemed to accept the bit better. I'll start using it more often now. It also smells really good - my horse tries to eat it every time I use it." Heidi P, Ohio

"I've been riding a horse that has always been known for having a hard mouth. I was in search of a solution to this problem as he has a lot of talent. I came across Bit Butter and thought it was definitely worth a shot! I've been using it for  little under a month and have already seen a big difference! He's more responsive and easier in the hand. I've even changed to a less severe bit." Patrice M, New Jersey

Product Reviews

great, use it all the time, a bit pricy but lasts a long time
Date Added: 21/07/2016     by Deborah Dobson
Great for horses and humans. Healing is quicker using this than if you use Vaseline or sudocrem for bit rubs. Even great for human chapped lips... Smells and tastes good but just a bit pricey
Date Added: 27/06/2016     by V Nic
Use this every time we ride, bought the larger pot which lasts really well.
Date Added: 13/06/2016     by Suzanne Ruffle
I have used bit butter for my horse and the lip balm myself for a number of years and would not be without it.
Date Added: 08/05/2016     by Carol Dickson
I bought this to try with my mare who has a very dry mouth. I can't honestly say it has made any difference to her but it smells amazing and I like using it, so worth a try!
Date Added: 27/04/2016     by Catrin Jones
Having bought 2 ponies with permanently cracked mouth corners, this is a life-saver for us - mouths in perfect condition and ponies going much better for it.
Date Added: 30/03/2016     by Polly Eddis
This product is fantastic! My mare is prone to getting sore in the corners of her mouth but after using this her mouth is healthier than ever! I apply it just before riding and a little after.

Much more happier in his contact and while being tacked up
Date Added: 25/02/2016     by helen mitchell-hunter
very pleased with this product, does the job designed for keeping the corners of the mouth soft.

Sorry I haven't used this yet so cannot review this item but am happy to when I do

A bit pricey but a little goes a long way, good around the lips and prevents chaffing.

Have not used yet - seems expensive. all products arrived very promptly and were well packaged.

Hi there I've had a really tricky time with my boy when trying to put his bridle on. He's big and bargey and I'm quite small. My daughter recommended this product, having used it on her mount when she had a sore mouth. So far Jack loves it and it's almost a pleasure now tacking him up! I'm just trusting this will continue.... I guess it's partly due to the smell, which he obviously finds attractive and also the taste. Top marks so far....
Date Added: 09/07/2015     by Joyce Nevison
My horse gets a slightly sore mouth at the corners although I have tried many bits and products. This product works well as the horse really likes the taste and I can smear it on thickly before riding him. I am hoping long term it may help to irradiate the problem as he will hopefully be softer in the contact as well.
Date Added: 19/06/2015     by Ann Slight
Love this product! We can not get this is Holland, so for me to order it overseas is perfect! Ordered it and 3 days later we had it already!!
Date Added: 09/06/2015     by Patricia Visscher
I have been using this product on a horse with a sore mouth for nearly a week and have seen a marked improvement. He seems to like the taste. I was pleased that the order arrived quickly.
Date Added: 02/06/2015     by Rachel Hughes
We were having problems with sensitivity to the corner of one of our horses mouths, but applying a little of this product before intense work seems to have alleviated the problem. The product smells really nice and the horses seem to love it.
Date Added: 09/05/2015     by Julie Bradbury
Works a treat lovely smell as well. Keeps the corners of his mouth soft
Date Added: 16/04/2015     by Sheron
Love this product. My horse has quite deep folds at the corners of his mouth which can get quite hard and dry. This keeps them soft and supple.
Date Added: 14/04/2015     by Jackie Harrison
Love this stuff and use it on my horse every time I ride. I do believe it helps keep his mouth in better shape (he is inclined to get marks on his mouth even though in a snaffle or nathe and not strong) and I feel it makes him mouth better - a more moist lip area that encourages him to soften. Lovely.
Date Added: 17/02/2015     by Melanie
Loving this product already I can see improvements to my horses mouth and also smells lovely :)
Date Added: 22/01/2015     by Melissa Chennells
I've had mixed reactions regarding this product, some horses love it and well some.. not so much. There is no doubt it smells delicious and feels lovely and soft to the fingers when applying it, and certainly helps to keep the lips moisturized and soft. I had the lip salve also, which I like. It leaves my lips a little tingly but well moisturised and protected against the elements!
Date Added: 16/10/2014     by Terry Ann Owen
A good product. Helpful for preventing cracks and rubs. Horse likes the taste.
Date Added: 06/10/2014     by Jan richmond
Like the multi uses it has beyond bits! Really nice smell and taste, my mare loves bit butter as does her jockey.

Love bit butter but again the tub was cracked so I had to put the contents into another container.
Date Added: 30/07/2014     by Collette Holt
A staple part of our diet!! I have a pot in the lorry and a pot in my grooming kit at the yard - would never be with out it.
Date Added: 28/07/2014     by Laura Cotterill
Harry was very interested in this as soon as I opened the tub and really likes the tast. He was happy to take the bit and lighter in the hand. Thank you
Date Added: 19/07/2014     by Janet Ward
I am converted! Really does make a difference! Smells great too!
Date Added: 05/06/2014     by Clare Hinchliffe
Easy to order, very prompt delivery. The product keeps my horses mouth really soft.
Date Added: 24/05/2014     by Tessa Seed
Beautiful smell - my horse tried to stick her tongue in the pot! It melted upon touching, so it was easy to get the right amount out of the jar, and it helped my mare's mouth stay soft throughout our ride, and for several hours afterwards too. A really great product, I will be buying more.
Date Added: 11/05/2014     by Tamsin Raymond
smells nice and stays on skin well .have only been using it a few days for an area on my horses mouth that is always dry so not sure as yet how effective it is but it does make a nice luxury human hand cream
Date Added: 02/05/2014     by gina bruce
Very pleased with the product. Only one small blip, the item was a lot smaller than I had expected, although it was the correct amount. It looked larger in the advert. Item arrived within 2 working days. Thank you. kathy

Although a little hard to get out of the pot (could be because of cold weather) but it does make a big difference to our ponies mouth. Have used similar products and although this one is a little more expensive is well worth the extra.
Date Added: 08/02/2014     by Rachel Turner
Product works really well, helps to keep the mouth soft and aids acceptance of the bit. Really quick service.
Date Added: 01/12/2013     by Tessa Seed
Got this to try with a youngster who wasn't mouthing well. Horse is much happier to take the bit during bridling and has a softer more productive mouth.
Date Added: 21/11/2013     by Alex Northover
Have used this before and find it really keeps the horse's mouth soft and flexible. Not packaged up very well though the lid was broken

made my horse more steady in his contact, and felt softer in my hand
Date Added: 17/10/2013     by Ruby Saax
I have just ordered the Bit Butter fron this site. The service was quick and efficient. The bit butter is an excellent product for maintaining the delicate skin around the horses mouth where the bit and flash noseband sit. I now use it as a general grooming product on a daily basis to maintain healthy skin. I have also used it to protect and lubricate small injury sites which other creams tend to slide off.
Date Added: 02/10/2013     by Nicola Gregory
Lovely stuff - great for general use to prevent rubbing of flash straps on sensitive noses. I treated myself to the human version this time too - love it!
Date Added: 29/09/2013     by Hayley Marnes
A really nice softening product, smells great and I use on both the horse and myself.
Date Added: 04/09/2013     by Susan Featherstone
New product to me have used a few times and I quite like it does seem to lighten my horse a bit so worth a go

This made all the difference to my mare's acceptance of the bit. Recommended - smells lovely too!

My horse loves the taste! S,ells lush, easy to apply to horses mouth and bit.
Date Added: 29/06/2013     by Fiona Barnett
Excellent product. It protects my daughter's eventer's mouth from being pinched by the bit when the reins are put on the bottom ring for jumping. Lovely smell too and he likes the taste!
Date Added: 20/06/2013     by Alison Hirst
We currently have a horse whose mouth cut after wearing a strong bit. The bits been changed, the mouth is healing and we've been recommended Bit Butter rather than using vaseline before tacking up. Only just received goods so can't really comment how good it is but have to admit it smells lovely and we've even tried it ourselves before using it on the horse.
Date Added: 11/06/2013     by Jenny D
The butter did make a difference in that my horse always seems to nick himself in the corners of his mouth, the butter kept him moisturised and after a schooling session I could still smell it on him and see it. I started using a small amount actually on the bit but have found if i use more I got more acceptance. A good product.
Date Added: 07/05/2013     by Louise Savage
Great stuff, used this introducing my youngster back to ridden work after winter turn-away. She actually stands over me to accept the bridle & bit she likes it that much & has taken a lovely relaxed contact. A must have item.
Date Added: 06/05/2013     by Rachel Williams
My 5 year old absolutely loves this and it has really helped her soften in the mouth.
Date Added: 11/04/2013     by Eleanor Bulmer
Good product, smells nice and horse seemed happier in her mouth when I used it the other day - early days so may be coincidence but so far so good!
Date Added: 10/04/2013     by Sarah Ward
Fantastic stuff! I have a thin skinned horse with a fleshy mouth, this stops any redness, dryness etc on the lip/mouth area!
Date Added: 10/04/2013     by Felicity Sparks
Smells and feels nice but my horse did not like it! Reasonable price as should last for a long time
Date Added: 01/04/2013     by Sarah Hamlyn
The product does exactly what it says on the tub! Stopped my horses bit rubs straight away. He also accepts the bit and really enjoys the taste and smell! Thank you so much Bit Butter you have solved my problems!

My horses love the taste and texture of the butter and it most definately helps with getting the horses on the bit.

My horse has had a sore mouth, Bit Butter has proven to be my best buy so far this year!!
Date Added: 18/03/2013     by Debbie Smith
The service from Horse Health was excellent. I have not tried the product yet as the pony it's for is not in work at the moment. It smells nice and I'm hoping that it will do what it says on the tub, so for now I'm giving it a middle of the road ranking, with luck I will be able to improve on that in due course.
Date Added: 17/03/2013     by Sally Dean
Very nice product, the horse loves the flavour and accepts the bit eagerly. Lovely and soft on the mouth as well.
Date Added: 17/03/2013     by Roma Arnott
Smells lovely, my horse seems to like it, I smear it along the underside of the bit bar and in the creases of his mouth.
Date Added: 15/03/2013     by Suzanne Hall
Fantastic product, softens corners of mouth to prevent sores from the bit. Horses seem to love the taste too! Very quick delivery.
Date Added: 07/03/2013     by Sue Duncan
A must for every tack room! My horse had come back from hunting with a sore mouth, after I had applied this is was back to normal within 24hrs! Smells good enough to eat, added bonus!

Fab product my horse loves this he tries to eat my fingers everytime I put it on . It smells lovely and works wonders
Date Added: 08/02/2013     by Charlene Hanson
I've used this before when my gelding got cuts on the corner of his mouth - it was brilliant at keeping everything soft whilst it healed ( we could still work him) and he liked the taste. I'm now using it on the bit for my mare who has decided that a mid-winter cold metal bit is not nice....apparently a cold metal bit with bit butter is acceptable!
Date Added: 02/02/2013     by Anon
No noticeable difference. Won't bother with this again.
Date Added: 21/01/2013     by Jennifer Egan
great on young horses, or those who are not straight yet and/or yaw at the bit, its the best thing ever, heals nicely but doesnt make the skin over soft.
Date Added: 05/01/2013     by Rachel Robinson
purchased to make up a bundle of gifts for christmas. Not used yet so cannot really comment but it smells divine!!!! a smidgen on finger tips to see how it felt left fingers feeling silky so hoping it will have same effect with dry flakey bits you get around the mouth/muzzel where the bit rings sit. Have only given 4 stars as its not been used on horse yet.

Your communication during the ordering process was excellent I did think £4.95 for next day delivery was a little steep but as I was not going to be at home this was the only option that allowed me to advise of a place to leave the package. I have now tried the bit butter on my little gelding several times and in all honesty it does not seem to have made any difference at all to his 'focus' on the bit, it has however been great on my lips in this cold weather !
Date Added: 05/12/2012     by sandra watts
I have been looking at various different bits to enable me to ride my horse in a more rounded, consistent contact, and bought this at Olympia. So I have rubbed it on the loose ring snaffle I usually use and bingo, she's a lot more happier working in her current bit with the Bit Butter on it than me investing in a £90 bit! I don't seem to be using a lot, and she loves it so much I had to stop her licking it out of the pot like a Likit recently when I accidentally left the lid off!!
