    I don't know where you got that idea, there is no "standard" bit for clinics. You generally use your horse's normal bit or whatever you expect they will go best in under the clinic conditions. And...

    In my situation, the checks are made payable to the clinician (who then pays the facility their fee), so unless its cash, I can't cash the check myself. No one has actually stopped payment...

    I owned a horse with this habit, he was always injuring himself in some way, we ended up padding the walls of his stall. Although the OP says he seldom does this anymore.
