We are constantly refining our aids to get a more harmonious image, faster reaction, better communication and cooperation with our horse. When a horse tenses up in the neck, he doesn't use it's back correctly, resulting in contact issues like opening the mouth, pulling on the bit, having a frame behind the vertical or the opposite: stargazing. All these contact issues and there causes are assessed in the courses and educations offered.
The cause of contact issues could be in the wrong choice of bit or bridle, but also in the horse's biomechanics, think of blockages, trauma and muscle injury that effects the way a horse is moving and reacting on the bit and don't forget the rider.
Previously knowledge about solving the puzzles of contact issues where hard to find until in 2015 the ICPBC ( International College for Professional Bitfit Consultants started the first worldwide year training on bitfitting and contact issues. The ICPBC has always been completely independent from any bit brand, so there are no other motives than just spreading knowledge and creating more welfare for horses into this world by making you think about choices of bits, bridles, riding style and biomechanics.
Due to Corona the travelling and practical days where not easy to plan. Also since we work with so many horse professionals with different backgrounds it was hard to get everyone starting at the same level. Therefore we changed the program. Offering the main education: the ICPBC for the really fanatic horse professionals that covers bit- and bridlefitting and solving the more complicated contact issues. But also introducing seperate pre modules that can be followed online by a bigger group and offering the new PBF (Professional Bridle Fitting) course that can be done online.
