Starter

Neue Schule Starter Bit

Make the first start the right start –establish the basics. The Starter is designed to promote acceptance and confidence in the contact. It is a common misconception that mouthing should be encouraged, when in fact it is quiet, relaxed acceptance we are aiming for. A gentle bit that encourages the horse to stretch the top line forwards and down into a soft consistent contact.

Team Up

Neue Schule Team Up Bit

The Team Up is the ergonomically modernised French Link; a much more comfortable mouthpiece that promotes better performance all round. This lozenge is designed to share the tongue contact area with the adjacent loops to give a smoother feel over the tongue. The double joint allows more flexibility ensuring a clearer and more independent rein aid.

Turtle top

Neue Schule Turtle Top Bit with Flex

Turtle Top™ with Flex

Anatomy-inspired double jointed bit design with enhanced mouthpiece stability, through optimised alignment of the mouthpiece surfaces to the tongue and palate.

The Turtle Top™ link shape takes inspiration from the shell of the Box turtle. This flattened dome shaped link lowers palate pressure and prevents the cannons from being pushed upwards above the link by the horse’s tongue.

The Neue Schule Flex design concept delivers a guaranteed and well controlled co-alignment of the surfaces of the mouthpiece with the sensitive surfaces of the equine mouth. For most designs Flex delivers parallel co-alignment of the Turtle Top™ dome with the equine palate.

In selected designs we allow Flex to deliver some firm but fair additional pressure to the tongue and poll using a lever action-induced rotation of the mouthpiece. The extra pressure obtainable is carefully restricted with Flex limiting the range of additional rotation to around 10 degrees.

FlexZ

FlexZ is a development of our popular Tranz range (hence the “Z”). Gently curved cannons form a wide arch aligned over the tongue and held in shape by Turtle Top™. FlexZ is therefore more securely centred on the tongue and more resistant to being pulled through the mouth.

Tranz Angled Lozenge

Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge

The NS Tranz mouthpiece is ergonomically designed for both comfort and communication. A very popular comfortable mouthpiece that promotes feel and responsiveness encouraging a soft sustainable contact. Our short link NS Tranz Angled Lozenge is aligned, uniquely, at 20° to the bore axes of the cheeks. When a contact is taken, the smoothly profiled lozenge and loops press gently down onto the centre of the tongue thus a higher level of communication through the rein is achieved. The more pressure – sensitive side areas of the tongue are thus relieved and the thicker less pressure-sensitive area is brought into play. The double joint allows more flexibility ensuring a clearer and more independent rein aid.

Available in 14mm or 16mm

Verbindend2

Neue Schule Verbindend loose ring

Greatly clarifies and emphasises the signals through the rein. Promoting self carriage and throughness, a true outline and freedom through the shoulder can be developed. The Verbindend has consistently helped eradicate tongue evasions, encouraging the horse to soften and relax through the jaw. The cleverly curved mouthpiece can also enhance the development of the bend for lateral work and smaller circles. This dressage legal snaffle is not severe, so if you are a pleasure rider and simply wish to lift the forehand then this bit is a logical choice.

Available in 12mm or 16mm mouth thickness

Tranz Angled Lozenge Baucher

Neue Schule Baucher

This combination of Baucher cheek and NS Tranz mouthpiece usually helps the rider to achieve and maintain a rounder and more correct outline. If your horse is constantly resisting, strung out or coming above the bit the usual response to the NS Tranz Baucher is a head lowering action and softer feel through the rein. This design often proves beneficial for the over sensitive mouth. Highly recommended where help is needed for straightness and directional control.

Tranz Angled Lozenge Full Cheek

Neue Schule Full Cheek

Excellent for directional control and tight turns during faster work as the mouthpiece will not slide across the mouth when turning. It is also safer for young horses, especially when introducing to road work, as it should not pull through the mouth in a panic situation. Highly beneficial for children or novice riders who may not be sufficiently experienced in supporting their inside rein. The upper cheeks may be fixed to the cheek pieces with Fulmer Loops in order to stabilise the mouthpiece.

Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Universal

The NS Tranz Universal offers control without discomfort or severity. It is brilliant for faster work such as jumping as you can turn much more easily. The Universal also helps to eliminate the head toss when asking for a downward transition, or shortening in between fences. If you need to upgrade from a snaffle, it is highly recommended as it offers varying degrees of control. Also an excellent training tool prior to introducing the doubles for employing two reins and a curb strap.
