About the Bit
A lovely bit for young horses being broken in, just starting out or in the retraining process. The Neue Schule Trans Angled Full cheek works gently on the horse’s tongue to encourage bit acceptance and a steady contact.

Early days but horse seems to really like it! Great for training, encourages him to reach down, and relax into the contact, Lots of froth. Aids in steering and not worried about bit coming through when lunging or riding.
This is the best bit i have ever ridden with! My horse loved it instantly and was softer and more generous with his mouth. The contact from it feels steadier, like it sits steady in the mouth, so it is easier to maintain a consistent contact. It made turning easier, the full cheek means it doesn't slide in the mouth and the pressure on the outside cheek reinforces the outside aid. I was hoping it would be worth the money I spent on it as it's easy to find cheaper bits, but I am very glad that I spent the extra money and bought this brand. It came within days of ordering it and it was beautifully packaged. I am extremely happy with this bit and I would recommend it highly.
I wanted a kind bit that would allow for better turning control for my daughters on their ponies as the moved up through the SJ and eventing grades. They didn't need a 'hasher' bit, rather just a snaffle with better control in turning. Have just brought a second one for middle daughter and her new pony at Equitana (first daughter and her 14.1 pony have had theirs for about a year).
This bit allows the horse to be focused on the work at hand. It is perfect to training young horses. It allows for even pressure and does not slide.
I was looking for a soft bit that I could use on my newly broken in youngsters. I wanted something that wouldn't pull through their mouths. The full cheek is great, helps with balance as it doesn't get pulled through the mouth if a horse resists and runs through the aids. All my horses that have used any of the bits in the Neue Schule range accept the bits wonderfully. They chew gently and always come out of their work with foamy mouths. I highly recommend the Neue Schule range and try and use where possible.
