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.

This bit will help with

  • Turning and Steering 

  • Straightness

  • Bit sliding through the mouth 

  • Horses inconsistent in the contact

  • Keeping the bit still in the horse’s mouth due to unsteady hands

  • Lateral work

  • Encouraging bit acceptance

NOT recommended for

  • Horses who are very tongue sensitive

Cheek piece 
The full cheek keeps the bit still and steady in the horse’s mouth giving the horse a more constant feel and aids with turning by applying a small amount of pressure to the side of the lips.

Dressage legality*
EA Dressage - YES

How it should fit
The Trans Angled Full Cheek must fit snug with only 0-2mm gap between the lip and the arms of the full cheek.

    Full cheek review - Neue Scheule

    Posted by Lauren McNeill on Feb 25, 2020

    Great inviting bit I use for show jumping and hacking out. I love the double joint with the middle piece to help with comfort in my horses mouth and to aid in nice bascule over jumps. Would highly recommend for someone wanting more support for their horse

    NS full cheek

    Posted by jodie on Jan 20, 2017

    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.

    Beautiful to ride in!

    Posted by Tahlia on Feb 22, 2016

    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.

    Great for ponies and kids alike

    Posted by Rebecca on Jan 10, 2015

    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).

    Excellent Control

    Posted by Tania Andel on Oct 31, 2011

    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.

    Perfect for that beginning with youngsters

    Posted by PVS Training & Equine Services - Pamela Schuler on Oct 31, 2011

    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.
