Purchase this but as my horse was not accepting the bit with head tossing and chewing. Settled immediately with this bit and going much more softly and collected.
The Verbindend greatly clarifies and emphasises the signals through the rein. Promoting self carriage and throughness, a true outline and freedom through the shoulder can be developed with this bit. The Verbindend has consistently helped eradicate tongue evasions, encouraging the horse to soften and relax through the jaw. The cleverly curved mouthpiece can also enhance the development of the bend for lateral work and smaller circles. The D-ring cheek-piece is excellent for added directional control and exceptionally good for tight turns during faster work. It is also safer as it should not pull through the mouth in a panic situation. This dressage legal snaffle is not severe, so if you need help with directional control and extra lift, this may meet your needs.
My horse has an extreme dislike of bits as a concept and this one he tolerates the best of any bit I've tried so far. He is noticeably more relaxed in this bit than any other I have tried so I'm very impressed.
I am really happy with the high quality of this bit. My boy is still settling into it and pleased with his progress.
Love this bit, after trying 5 different bits (including a ported mouthpiece) on a young horse who was very over active in the mouth, sensitive yet heavy, this bit changed his way of going instantly! So utterly soft and lovely in the hand, I personally found him happier in the d in comparison to the loose ring as it was more stable in the mouth. Thanks BB
Bit Bank is very responsive if I need anything else I will definitely be coming back, they are very helpful and definitely helped me choose the right bit. My Verbindend Hunter Dee bit has already improved the control I have over my horse and I feel safer already just after one ride! Thank you so much, I would really recommend them.
