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 Verbindend Loose Ring greatly emphasizes the signals through the rein. The Verbindend creates a channel for the tongue to lie in which allows the horse to soften and relax through the jaw, as well as prevent tongue evasions.

    Neue Schule Verbindend Loose Ring - 16mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse hated it Tried the join up on my horse. He hated it. I usually ride in a myler level one loose ring (usdf legal) and thought I'd try this to encourage him to be more forward in bridle. He chomped and stayed behind the contact in the NS bit. Also, the metal in the rings seemed to scratch very easily, just after one use. I'll stick to myler.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressage legal for my pulling horse! I have a horse that tends to pull very much. Previously to me, he has been Tried in just about every bit, with no luck to keeping him soft. I did all the body work, vet, shoeing, voo do witch doctors to try to soften him. Still no luck. Literally he was ripping your arms off at the canter. My grand prix dressage coach told me about this bit. Omg what a difference! Our scores dropped 5 points the next test. And I didn't lose circulation in my arms ;-) highly recommend for a horse that roots or pulls against the contact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual look. Unusually good effect. I hesitated to buy this bit when it first arrived on the scene because of the reverse curves compared to traditional snaffles. A student tried one on her horse and I liked the resulting feel on him so much I tried one on a young horse starting in his first double bridle. I was so impressed, that I now own a regular snaffle as well as the bradoon. It truly does improve the lateral flexion aid in a clear way.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly light I just recently started using this bit on my horse that originally was hesitant in the contact then became too heavy. This bit is working for him, it allows me to remind him when he starts to get heavy to be light. It is still gentle but effective. I normally use herm sprenger bits but I am pleasantly surprissed with this bit. I ordered his normal herm sprenger size and it seems to fit well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bit! This was the third bit I tried for my new horse. He wouldn't stop fussing with the first two, but, similar to the experiences of the other reviewers, he readily accepted the Neue Schule Verbindend and is very quiet with his mouth in it. I also really like his responsiveness with this bit. I'm so relieved to find something that works for him!
