Neue Schule bits are revolutionary made with Salox Gold (which heats up faster than stainless steel) they encourage a more softer acceptance from the horse and come in a range of competition legal bits designed to assist horses with particular training issues.
Often sourced for strong horses with a tendency to set themselves or pull down. A deterrent for horses that grab the bit and go. The combination of this mouthpiece and the gag action (lift within the mouth) of the cheeks makes it virtually impossible for them to grab the bit. As the Waterford bends in every direction it usually suits all types of mouth conformation, including big fat tongues. This slimmer innovative Waterford mouthpiece features a lip shelf which generally eradicates the previously common problem of rubs. The loose ring is more flexible, discouraging the horse from leaning, which may happen with the fixed cheek. Two reins allow the rider to differentiate between the snaffle action and the gag action (lift within the mouth). However, many riders only employ the gag rein which maximises on control and lift from the shoulder. Use either in conjunction with our own rolled leather cheeks, aesthetically pleasing and softer in their action, or our rope cheeks that have a sharper action as they slip back and forth through the cheeks more quickly
