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 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took a few weeks, it really has helped I bought this for my ottb who was going well in a Myler but started rooting and going above the bit, even at the walk. After trying MANY other brands, I tried this. My horse immediately quit rooting at the walk, and over a few weeks has quit rooting completely. He lifts thru the shoulder much nicer too. I would recommend this, and give a a little time because the change can be gradual..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First "dressage legal" bit that has worked for us! My mare came to me hard mouthed with very little "correct" training. We went through several bits trying to find something that was effective without being harsh. We ended up riding in a beval bit for several months because anything else was essentially ineffective. She has the tendency to lean heavily into the hands at trot, yank at the reins in a halt or walk, and ignore half halts altogether. At a friend's suggestion, and after researching reviews online, I decided to try the verbindend. From the very first ride, I was amazed. My horse was both light and responsive! Even moreso than the beval which has the gag action. My horse prefers a thinner bit, so we went with the 12mm. I can't explain why the design of this bit works so well, but it does, so definitely worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! My horse loves this bit. I used a double jointed snaffle with German Silver before this bit, and he loved this one right away. He also salivates in this one which is a huge plus! I also think that it provides more control in the half halts, which I really need with my strong willed Appy pony! ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Horse Loves It! I ride several different horses and they all have gotten along great with this bit! No fussing or head tossing! Very thankful to have read the other great reviews on this item and I agree!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made My horse doesn't love dressage (it's a necessary evil so we can go XC) but he loves this bit. It makes our time in the sandbox a little easier!
