Overview

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.

Reviews
Neue Schule Verbindend Loose Ring - 16mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Bit! So far I’ve had good results with it on three of the horses I ride. It seems to sit very comfortably in their mouths which has encouraged a steadier contact through the rein. It’s an expensive bit, but Smartpak’s member association discount and a coupon they sent me (from a previous purchase) helped with the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit Nice bit. I changed to this bit because my young horse had grown and needed a longer bit. I had a similar bit and the transition was easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design My horse has a very low palate and he likes this bit. No more stiff jaw or grinding teeth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! It has always been a struggle with my friesian mare finding a snaffle that she won't run through, lay on or avoid. Very happy with her response to this bit. She doens't run through it or lay on my hands as much. She seems to like it much better than the plain snaffle I was ridding her in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit! Love this bit! Has helped me teach my big warmblood to get off his shoulders. No curling behind the bit. Seems to do all that it claims if you read the blurb that comes in the packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit! My horse loves this bit and so do I. It fits well and the curve helps keep my horse soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely an improvement I'm loving this bit on all three of my young ottbs. They were all hanging a bit on a different snaffle. I feel like they are much softer from the get go with this bit.

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.
Date published: 2017-03-06
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!
Date published: 2017-03-01
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! ;)
Date published: 2016-11-11
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!
Date published: 2016-09-19
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!
Date published: 2016-08-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit! I use this bit on both my 3 Year Old Materiale gelding and my second level gelding. I find it encourages them to go round and accept contact better than any other double or single jointed snaffle I've ridden them in.
Date published: 2016-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant change. My horse is a huge dreams queen when it comes to bits. He likes to open his mouth,put his young as far back as it will go and try to get away from all contact with the bit. As soon as I used this bit, he was relaxed and supple. I this is an amazing bit.
Date published: 2016-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bit on the market I can not say enough great things about this bit!!! I have 5 OTTBs and a young TB who never raced. They all go amazing in this bit, they are all at different levels of training as well. The acceptance of this bit by all is truly amazing. Wether I am teaching my baby ( who is 4 and has 20 days under saddle) to steer, or teaching more advanced dressage moves in my now 8 yr old ottb who has been off the track 3 years , or galloping cross country on my 17 hh OTTB who has been off the track 4 months, I have relaxed, responsive, soft horse under me! Thanks to this amazing bit.. my boy who would ride with his tounge out ( old track habit) rode with his tounge in his mouth for the first time after trying numerous different bits, he loves this bit! My 27 yr old ottb who I normally ride in a dr. Cook b/c of his of how much he dislikes bits, accepted this bit right away and at first couldn't stop salivating..LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! you will NOT be disappointed :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this a month ago and from start my mare was working off bit more willing and using back more effectively. Totally endorse this bit
Date published: 2015-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well with my horse I've been very pleased with this bit. I'm a dressage rider, and I feel like this bit helps me get a nice elastic contact. My horse is steadier in the bridle too. My trainer had suggested that I get this bit, and I'm glad she did. She's tried this type of bit on other horses in the barn: some did equally as well, but some really objected. It seems like bitting is inherently a trial-and-error process, but if you have a horse that tends to hang on your hands, I'd recommend giving this one a shot.
Date published: 2015-11-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the shape! I really liked the shape of this bit and how it laid in my horses' mouth and seemed to have even distribution. However, it weighs barely anything and ultimately wouldn't work for my horse, though I wish it did!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bit This is my second a Neue Shule bit. Bought this one for my 4 year old that is just starting out, he really works well in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this bit I have been looking for a bit for my former eventer who loves to lean on my hands as we are transitioning to more dressage work. She really seems to like this bit and feels lighter and more responsive.

8 - The Neue Schule Verbindend Horse Bit
Heavy on the forehand? The NS Verbindend greatly emphasises the signals through the rein. By encouraging clarity of the aids, and promoting a true outline the freedom through the shoulder can be developed, thus promoting self carriage and thoroughness. The NS Verbindend eradicates tongue evasions by creating a channel for the tongue to lie in allowing the horse to soften and relax through the jaw. This mouthpiece can also enhance the development of the bend for lateral work and smaller circles. The 12mm bridoon with neat 55mm rings is used with the Weymouth or on a small head. The 12mm with the 70mm rings normally offers extra lift from the shoulder and takes up less room in the mouth than thicker mouthpieces. If you are a pleasure rider and simply desire to establish a lighter, softer way of going this is the bit for you. ***Please note - due to the curvature of the mouthpiece the NS Verbindend shortens when placed in your horse's mouth, we recommend that you order 1/4" larger than your normal size***
