  • 16mm mouthpiece
  • Designed for horses with short mouths (distance from lip to muzzle)
  • A gentle mouthpiece for maximum comfort
  • Mouthpiece set at 45 degrees backwards
  • With a wide, low tongue bridge

Does your horse draw the tongue back creating tension through the jaw, poll and neck?

When the curb rein is employed ideally the Weymouth cheeks should rotate back at approximately 45 degrees. The curb chain is engaged at this point restricting further rotation and simultaneously the mouthpiece rotates forwards and comes to rest vertically within the mouth. It does not roll forwards onto the tongue.
A mild ergonomically designed Weymouth. The gently sloping mouthpiece forms a wide, low tongue bridge designed for maximum comfort across the tongue and 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. A very kind, gentle mouthpiece designed specifically for maximum comfort and clear communication.

It is beneficial for horses that have a short smile (small distance from the corner of the lip to the muzzle), as it will sit further back in the mouth. This leaves more room for the bridoon (snaffle part of the double). The comfort factor will discourage over-activity and tongue evasions and it is also physically harder for the horse to draw the tongue back and get it over the mouthpiece as there is usually insufficient room to achieve this.

Neue Schule Pacifier Weymouth (45 Backwards) 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.
