The dressage bit checker checks every competitor’s bit for legality, also checks spur and whip length, tightness of the noseband, and ear bonnets for illegal
soundproofing. This is not an entry level position. The bit checker must know the current USEA regulations on which bits and spurs are legal, and there are very many legal ones, and very many more illegal ones. Must be comfortable approaching every horse, even fractious ones, and sticking a gloved finger in its mouth to check the bit. Must change the glove between every horse for biosecurity. Must be able to track horses on a clipboard. This is an outdoor position.
