    Bit Seat

    Outlined in red is demonstration of a bit seat creating a gap in contact between the premolars. The horse relies on the ability of ALL teeth to make as much surface area contact with each opposing tooth above or below without any gapping. Remember, each tooth is the calcified ending of a nerve. The entire tooth needs to touch its opposing tooth in order to have that synapse and “spark plug” type effect previously discussed. The meridian chart (Page TK) reviews which organs, muscles, joints, etc., will be negatively affected by a bit seat or gap being created in any tooth.
