What is "bitting up"?

Bitting up is a technique some trainers use where the bit is tied to the saddle or a surcingle to "put" a horse's head in the correct position. It's highly controversial - some people feel it should never be done, some people think it is okay for short periods. Most agree the horse should not be left alone.

(This is not the same thing as mouthing).
