About the Bit

A softness and lift you can truly feel! 

The Neue Schule Verbindend is one of our miracle bits for helping horses who are heavy on the forehand, resistant to the aids or getting the tongue over the bit without severity as a side effect. 

It is also helpful for riders looking for more refinement, bend and fine tuning in the lateral work. 

Your horse will be immediately more lifted from the shoulder with complete freedom of the tongue to encourage full range of hindquarter action and a true self carriage and feel of working through.   

This bit will help with  
  • Leaning on the reins

  • On the forehand

  • Tongue Evasions

  • Pulling

  • Transitioning to a double

  • Small rider - big horse combination

  • Lateral work

  • Relaxing the jaw

  • Fine tuning

  • Overactive mouth













The loose ring allows for an instant release from pressure and softer more refined feel through the reins. It also enables the horse to move the mouthpiece to where it is most comfortable.


Dressage legality*


EA Dressage - YES

How it should fit

The Verbindend Loose Ring must fit snug with only 2-5mm gap between the lip and the hole in the mouthpiece. This bit does run small due to the curve so please order ¼ of a size larger than your horses current well fitting bit.

    I used a NSV 5.25" bit successfully on my WBxASH mare. I recently bought a ClydexTB and the old bit seemed to fit OK (no pinching etc). However her mouth appears to be bigger than the previous mare's, so I ordered the 5.5" for the new horse. Just in case I was being a bit fussy and the new bit wasn't really needed I also paid for the return insurance. However, I am glad that I got the larger size as the new mare seems to be steadier (less chomping) on the larger bit.

    I contacted Bit Bank to see if this bit would be the best for what we needed and yes it was. The change when using it was profound. I truely didn't expect that much of a difference. However we now had no leaning in the canters, so it meant I could ride better and have a more positive influence, he was lighter and more up, instead or getting a bit bigger down in his canter work. One ride and I was sold. If your horse can get a little heavy or on the forehand, give this a go. Still soft, still a kind snaffle, but works so well.

    My saviour

    Posted by Sharni on Oct 06, 2020

    For years I have dealt with on and off mouth problems with my very large Warmblood. I have had bit fittings, consulted professionals, tried at least 30 different types, brands and styles of bits and hackamore, and yet nothing ever worked or for very long if it did. My boy is not strong, he doesn’t pull or lean and I ride with a very still, independent and kind hand. So after years of trying, and failing, a friend lent me her NS Verbindend and I instantly fell in love and had to buy one! Ever since, my horse has travel still and quiet in the mouth, lifted through the shoulder, and stopped all pinching, rubbing and blistering of his lips!!

    Very happy with this bit. My horse is an anxious "chomper" and when I tried this bit the chomping has decreased by at least 75%. He is more willing to come through properly and take a steady contact without leaning on my hand.

    My bit

    I have a 17hh very powerful big warm blood that tends to hold the bit too strongly — my newNeue Schule bit has definitely helped me get a better and more consistent connection with a much softer feel — thanks Bit Bank

    My TB pulls like a train, always has, he was raced in every bit of lugging/pulling gear available!! This bit has given me so much more control without being nasty. If he starts to lean on my hands now I can just lift his shoulder and soften him without an argument. 100% recommended this bit.
