    Turtle Tactio with Flex

    The NS Turtle Tactio has been specifically engineered to accommodate the larger or sensitive tongue.  The very unique design of the Turtle Tactio delivers through to riders a never before available approach that achieves supreme comfort for the horse and encourages acceptance of the bit and rider instruction. 

    The flattened underside of the cannons (arms of the bit) with their anatomy-inspired recesses are held parallel to the tongue whatever riding activity is being undertaken.  The innovative mouthpiece is immensely rewarding to horses and encourages them to want to work with the rider.

    The mouthpiece focuses rein pressure to the central part of the tongue whilst diverting pressure away from the sensitive regions near the bars.

    The unique central Turtle link brings the proximal ends of the cannons to their closest separation possible and also is gently curved to protect the highly sensitive palatine arch.

    The effective thickness of the mouthpiece in the region of the interdental space is the smallest on the market, this results in the innovative design being immensely rewarding to horses and encourages them to want to work with the rider.

    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.
