We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Neue Schule takes on a "new school" approach towards bit technology. With the help of computer design, Neue Schule has the freedom to be more innovative with creation of mouthpieces and cheeks to promote overall comfort for the horse. Neue Schule Salox® Gold rapidly reaches mouth temperature so the bit feels less like a foreign body in the horse's mouth, and aids in relaxation. The Team Up Loose Ring encourages the horse to soften through the jaw, relax and lengthen the neck. It is smoothly contoured over the tongue and therefore, does not dig in.

Neue Schule Team Up Loose Ring - 16mm is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful bit! I found the reviews on this bit helpful, and I agree that my horse seems to be going very pleasantly in this bit, with less resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I.LOVE.THIS.BIT I have a just turned 6 year old who has teeth (finally) coming in. He has been extremely mouthy and destroyed a happy mouth bit within 5 rides. He has started to associate the bit with discomfort and has been very resistant to contact which is extremely unlike him. This persisted even after having his teeth done by my vet. My trainer suggested either this bit or the "starter" bit by Neue Schule. After reading information about each, I decided on this one. The first ride was very interesting as my horse went through several moments of realization. "This is going to hurt!" "oh wait. this is different" "oh man, I kind of like this" "ok I love this". Now its not going to turn your backyard intro horse into a grand prix dressage horse over night but my guy has been happily taking his bit, relaxed in the contact and eagerly stretching down and out. I won't put him in anything else but Neue Schule going forward. Absolutely worth every penny.Also for what it's worth, I owned a Neue Schule Verbindend bit for a previous horse. I used it 4-5x every week for over 3 years. It held up beautifully and shined up very well so I can vouch for these lasting a long time too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit for Green Horses! I bought this bit for an OTTB who came to me with a habit of getting his tongue over the bit. He was also very stiff in his jaw. After having the equine dentist and chiropractor out, I decided to experiment with a new bit by changing his stainless steel loose ring with a lozenge to the Team Up. I found that with this bit, along with the dental and chiro work, my horse is now much happier in the bridle. The tongue evasions have gone away, and he willingly reaches out to the bit into a light contact. I like how light the Team Up is and how easy it is to keep clean. The Salox metal warms up quickly and my horse always accepts his bit happily. I rinse my bit after each ride and it still looks like new after six months of use. Size wise, my horse goes in a 5 3/4", and I found that the 5 3/4" sized bit fit well. Overall, I'm very happy with this bit and am glad that I gave it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found the one. My horse seems to hate having a bit in his mouth for no apparent reason. This is the only bit he is quiet with! I even tried a Happy Mouth bit and he didn't care for it. I'm starting to do a little dressage too so this is a perfect but to do all around work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from effective and comfortable! My horse, a green OTTB, and I feel comfortable with this bit. He is confident with it on the flat and over fences. Since we started using the team up he's been going freely forward and hears everything I ask. I'm very pleased.
