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***
