Neue Schule

The Neue Schule Collection is an innovative range of high performance superior comfort bits that are ergonomically designed and produced using state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and techniques. The Neue Schule Collection offers a range of mouthpieces in a variety of thicknesses in ¼” increments that are suitable for every discipline at all levels. Neue Schule has developed a unique material, Salox Gold. This specialised material is used for all of the mouthpieces of the Neue Schule bits; it is a warmer metal that heats up within seconds of being placed into the horse’s mouth. The benefit of this is that the comfort and acceptance of the bit is accelerated. The horse is therefore able to quickly start to focus on the action of the bit rather than the presence of it.

Company Founder, Heather Hyde, started one of the first horse bit bank companies in the UK in the late 1990s after seeing first hand how difficult it was to find bitting solutions to problems riders were having. Involving the adaptation or overhaul of traditional designs, Heather fine-tuned her design strategy, guided by the thoughts and needs of riders and their horses as they entered the 21st century and developed the Neue Schule Collection.

    Neue Schule Turtle Top Eggbutt

    THE AWARD WINNING REVOLUTIONARY TURTLE TOP !

    Turtle Top™ with Flex and Eggbutt Cheek

    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.

    FlexZ Eggbutt

    This innovation is brilliant at helping to achieve a comfortable and quiet mouth.  Turtle Top with Flex keeps the mouthpiece centered and arched over the tongue, at all times.  This comfortable mouthpiece is also useful in re-focusing the inattentive mouth back onto the rein aids in order to achieve a soft consistent contact.  It is also good for training / dressage as it gives the rider greater shoulder control on a circle and helps set up the bend when changing rein or with lateral work.  The stability the Eggbutt offers along with the clever design of mouthpiece often proves useful when working towards a consistent more even contact.  Often recommended for horses with a short tense neck.

    HIRE TERMS

    The hire period is 30 days from the date you receive the bit and if you have any queries or questions during this time, please contact me.
    The full price is paid at the time of purchase and if the bit is returned, a refund less the hire charge (£14.50 per bit * NS Turtle Tilt is £35.00 hire charge) and postage is processed.

    Please take care of the bit and keep it in good condition during the hire period. Damaged or broken bits cannot be returned.
    Don't worry about teeth marks - this sometimes happens with warmer sweeter metals - or oxidation - this happens with sweet iron and has a rusty appearance.
    Both are perfectly normal and will not affect me accepting the bit back.
    It is your responsibility to ensure that the bit is kept safe from damage, theft and loss during the trial period.

    All bits must be returned in clean condition and we ask that you wash the bit gently but thoroughly in warm water to remove any grass, food etc.
    All bits returned to Horse Bit Hire will be disinfected thoroughly.
     Horse Bit Hire cannot be held responsible for any diseases, infections, viruses or mouth or medical conditions that appear after hiring a bit from us.

    The bit must be back with Horse Bit Hire before the Hire End Date to avoid further charges being incurred.
