Dutton bits and spurs are hand made by Greg Dutton in Los Lunas, New Mexico and they are AMAZING. The quality and workmanship is second to none. Our very favorite bit is the twisted full cheek snaffle. I don’t think a horse has passed through Oakwood Manor without riding in this bit. Almost every bit we ride in is made by Dutton Bits and we are proud to sell them. We have also worked closely with Greg to design a few bits and have never been disappointed. Each bit comes with a lifetime guarantee. Please look through the pictures, or contact us if you don’t see what you want. There is nothing he can’t make!
Dutton Bits are developed to make better horsemen who, in turn, make better horses. These hand forged bits are designed to help achieve the ultimate communication and success between horse and rider. Dutton Bits feature a lifetime guarantee.
“The concept of Dutton Bits was introduced in 1976 when I made my first horse bit. I had no idea that it would turn into the business it has become today. With God’s blessings and hard work, anything is possible. God gives everyone a talent and skills. He has blessed me as a horseman and a bridle bit maker. Over the years, I’ve faced various horsemanship situations inspiring me to make many different styles of horse bridle bits.
I have a strong passion for making better horsemen who then make better horses. I believe this is accomplished through communication.Greg Dutton
Communication is a two way conversation between you and your horse. It includes actively listening as well as making requests. The bridle bit is one of the main tools used in communicating with your horse. From colts to older horses, they all have something they can teach us about the bits we use. Every day I ride with the bits I’ve made and am constantly striving for ways they can be improved.”
