A great bit for starting youngsters or more sensitive horses.
- Encourages chewing, salivation and relaxation into the contact.
- The mullen style can help with horses that are overly fussy in the mouth by giving them less to play with.

- Made in Germany, with a guarantee against breakages the Nathe bits feature a steel core centre through the plastic for your safety.
- The mouthpiece is gently shaped and with some bend and give, as well as being allergy free.
- Cheekpieces made from stainless steel for durability.
- 20mm thick with tapered centre, 12cm, 13cm and 14cm with 60mm rings, thinner mouthpiece and smaller rings in the 11cm size.

Bits by Nathe: for flexible and sensitive schooling and training.


(Due to the easily stained plastic material, the Nathe Bit range are unfortunately not available for trial.  These bits are also more prone to teeth marks than a metal bit)

    Happy horse

    Posted by Zoe on Jul 15, 2021

    I have a very sensitive horse who had a rough start-which created a lot of nerves and bit chewing so I thought I’d give this a go after a year of and learning bit-less. It’s worked an absolute treat. When he’s nervous he chews still, but I know he isn’t doing damage to his teeth and is ever soft and responsive with this bit in which is wonderful. It seems like great quality.

    Love this bit, and so does my TB. He's very sensitive in the mouth but in this bit, he's much happier to accept contact. A friend recommended it and it's worth every cent.

    Lovely soft bit with easy control

    This bit arrived quickly and couldn't wait to use it. My young horse relaxed straight away and responded well to the new bit. His mouth is very sensitive, so this bit is super soft and he loves it.

    So much more than just a snaffle

    My horse loves it. I love it. What more can you want. Beautiful snug fit, kind on his little mouth, and solid enough to provide extra control when I need it.

    Problem solved

    My 5yo mare has been very unsteady in her contact since she was started. I have tried numerous bits, tending towards the thicker snaffles as she is very sensitive, but none permitted a positive steady connection. I ordered the Nathe bit on the Tuesday before Christmas, thinking I could have quite a wait, but it was delivered first thing Thursday morning! Wow, great service! She is really happy in the new bit. I no longer need a noseband, and she sits in a firm contact quite happily, taking more rein when it's offered. It's been like finding the magic key! :)
