Neue Schule Aachen Weymouth Bit - Is your horse above the bit in doubles? The Neue Schule Aachen is an innovative, ergonomically designed, very kind Weymouth.

The gently sloping mouthpiece forms a wide, low tongue bridge designed for maximum comfort across the tongue and does not cause pressure over its sensitive outer edges. This tongue bridge also provides gentle, even weight distribution over the bars.

The mouthpiece is a constant 16mm diameter, circular over the bars and cleverly changing shape forming an oval profile over the tongue, thereby occupying minimum volume between the tongue and upper palate.

The Neue Schule Aachen Weymouth is designed to encourage the horse to lower the poll and lengthen the neck into soft, sustainable contact. It is particularly beneficial for the horse that is inclined to work above the bit and come back at you, or those that are tense and shorten the neck.

Neue Schule Aachen Weymouth (45 Forwards) 16mm/7cm Size Guide




How to Measure Your Bit

It is important to ensure you choose the right sized bit for your horse. A bit that’s too-small can pinch and cause rubs on the tongue or cheeks, and a bits that’s too-big can slide around in the mouth and be less effective.

Bits are measured from inside corner to inside corner, across the length of the horse’s mouth. The easiest way to find the correct size bit for your horse is to measure a bit you already have that you know fits well. To measure the size of the bit, simply measure the length of the mouthpiece only, excluding the rings or shanks. This measurement (in mm or inches) corresponds to the size of bit you require.

Standard horse size bitss include 5”, 5 ¼”, and 5 ½” (130mm, 135mm, 140mm.) Pony bits can run as small as 3”, and draft horses be as large as 7”.


What does a well fitting bit look like?

For snaffle bits, you should see 1-2 wrinkles at the corner of the mouth and tension on the cheek pieces without solid pressure. You won’t see any wrinkles for curb bits, but the bit should be resting against the corners of the horse’s mouth and should not be low enough to touch or bang on the teeth.
