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.
Favorite Features
  • Made out of Neue Schule Salox® Gold
  • Created using Computer Animated Design
  • Comfort is a priority

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Neue Schule Team Up Loose Ring - 16mm is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My gelding is working through with this bit Bought this based on other reviews and needed a gentler bit for my guy. He took to it right away and has been far more through and supple on the bit. All seems well.
    Date published: 2018-06-14
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit but it was a little too big for my horse Came highly recommended but I had to return it and they didn’t have a smaller one.
    Date published: 2018-01-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good This bit is a big step up from the Stubben lozenge my horse was going in. Quieter mouth, more willingness to drop her poll and bend at the base of her neck -- which is not all that natural for a Morgan. Beautifully made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Contact My horse fussed around in his KK bit. I had teeth floated and mouth checked. All OK. I tried the Neue Schule eggbutt, which he disliked. Changed over to try the Team Up and, so far, he loves it. Soft contact, no fussing. Much more settled and even. Works for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Neue Schule! I switched my young horse to the Team Up from the Verbindend. I loved the Verbindend because it helped me with the "whoa"; the Team Up is less severe and is now great for getting the "go!" It's a nice lozenge, double-jointed snaffle and fits my warm blood very comfortably.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this bit about a month or so ago after doing some online research. I had been using a hollow mouth loose ring snaffle but then recently my guy was not wanting to seek contact as before which prompted my search to try a different bit. Love the money back guarantee with SmartPak so I thought why not give it a try! Immediately my guy was stretching down into the contact more than ever and he feels so much lighter in my hand as well.... not leaning on the bit but accepting the bit softly. Very happy with his immediate response so to me it is worth the money!!!

    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.
    Date published: 2016-07-18
    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!
    Date published: 2016-02-29
    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.
