“I have always believed in the importance of finding a bit to suit each horse and their individual sensitivities and needs.
Since discovering Neue Schule bits, I have seen a remarkable transformation in my horses, and with the wide variety of different shaped mouthpieces and options they have available, I would not consider using anything else!
Neue Schule offers the perfect bit to suit the unique needs of each horse in my barn, and with a carefully constructed, thought out design for each bit element, I highly recommend everyone try Neue Schule bits.”
“Neue Schule bits make so much sense! They’re easier to fit in the horse’s mouth, lighter weight and a fantastic metal compound that the horses love.
The new mouthpiece design is comfortable and conforms to the horse’s mouth like no other. Paragon and all my other horses love them.
“The Neue Schule bits are tops! The horses love them because they are lightweight and comfortable. There are many variations to accommodate a horse’s individual mouth conformation.
These bits are real performance enhancers!”
“I have been pleasantly surprised with the Neue Schule bits. My horses are generally more pliable and soft when I work them in these bits. I find it’s easier to get a horse to take a hold and stay there.”
My top horse, “Verdades,” was in a horrific accident in the summer of 2011 which resulted in a severely fractured jaw. He underwent a lengthy surgery and his jaw was held together with wire, rods and screws for months. It was unclear whether this horse would ever wear a bit again. As he healed, I began walking him on a loose rein in a snaffle and when x-rays allowed us to go back to work, I proceeded with caution.
Even though we made our CDI debut in 2012 at the Small Tour and had success in the Int. II, we constantly struggled with his mouth. He was very “busy,” and when we began working the Grand Prix, it was clear we needed help. My trainer suggested I call Barbara Biernat at Horse and Rider. She sent me a package of Neue Schule bits to try and from the first moments, I noticed improvements. Before I had even mounted, my horse was salivating and quieter in his mouth. He seemed more willing to “hold” the bits rather than spit them out. My score in the CDI GP increased by 5% in just one competition!
Even though we have since further refined my horse’s bit selection, the difference was clear from the beginning. You can have all the best training in the world, but having the right equipment to deliver that training is priceless. Whether I am looking to prevent a problem or solve a new one, I turn first to Neue Schule bits!
“We love the fit and ultimate comfort that Neue Schule bits provide for our horses. The difference has been clear on each horse, from the first ride!
“My overall impression of the Neue Schule bits is they are well crafted with the construction of the horse’s mouth in mind and made from high quality lightweight material that is both durable and comfortable for the horse.
My favorite bit is the loose ring because it works well for daily schooling. The Neue Schule bits have helped improve communication between me and my horses.”
