About the Bit
Is your horse inconsistent in the contact, chomping or chewing on the bit or tossing its head?
The Turtle Top is here to answer your prayers!
The Turtle Top which is inspired by the shell of the box turtle, prevents downward pressure to the horse’s tongue encouraging the horse to accept the bit and take the contact forward. The Turtle Top link is also flattened to lower pallet pressure and restricts the movement in mouthpiece, keeping it still and steady in the horse’s mouth.

How it should fit
The Turtle Top snaffle should fit fairly snug with only 2-5mm gap between the lip and the ring. The Neue Schule bits are made with a deep bevel making it almost impossible for the ring and mouthpiece to pinch the horses lips.

I have a green TB and after riding in a few other bits he is much more consistent with the turtle top. Quite impressed ?
Nice and gentle on the horses tongue and mouth but communication is excellent for rider to horse
Original one bought but a friend for my OTT boy and now I bought another as it’s great. Contact no bit biting and pleasure to ride
After having a few contact issues I spoke to the wonderful ladies at the Bit Bank and the recommended the nueu Schule turtle mouth . My horse is much happier and the contact has definitely improved
I purchased this bit recently for my OTT, and the difference it made was felt immediately Once again another great bit from Neue Schule
All I can say is WOW! This bit has been such a game changer for my ottb Danny and our partnership together. It’s funny how something that I looked past so often ended up being the issue. I never thought changing the bit would make such a difference. The whole bit bank team are fantastic to deal with, recommending this bit. Danny can get quite anxious when contact is first taken up and will be overactive in the mouth but as this bit kind of ‘locks’ it doesn’t allow him to play with it equaling in a much more consistent contact. He also no longer sucks behind the contact and is much more willing! This bit is amazing and the quality is outstanding! 10/10 from me!
Made a huge difference to the way my horse is going straight away. So much happier. Fantastic bit and great service
This bit is great, my OTTB has settled with his mouth and is now working nicely
Brilliant bit. Has transformed my horse. So happy.
