The Neue Schule Turtle Top Balding Bit with FlexZ is an anatomical inspired double jointed bit design with enhanced mouthpiece stability, through optimised alignment of the mouthpiece surfaces to the tongue and palate.
This innovation is brilliant for the over-active busy mouth that chomps and chews on the mouthpiece. Turtle Top with Flex keeps the mouthpiece centred and arched over the tongue at all times, safely helping to prevent sideways tongue evasions. This comfortable mouthpiece re-focuses the inattentive mouth back onto the rein aids in order to achieve a soft consistent contact.
The Turtle Top link shape takes inspiration from the shell of the Box turtle. This flattened dome shaped link lowers palate pressure and prevents the cannons from being pushed upwards above the link by the horseâ€™s tongue.
The Neue Schule Flex design concept delivers a guaranteed and well controlled co-alignment of the surfaces of the mouthpiece with the sensitive surfaces of the equine mouth.
FlexZ is a development of our popular Tranz range (hence the â€œZâ€). Gently curved cannons form a wide arch aligned over the tongue and held in shape by Turtle Top. FlexZ is therefore more securely centred on the tongue and more resistant to being pulled through the mouth.
The play from the loose ring minimises the chance of the horse gaining purchase on the mouthpiece and discourages leaning.Often scourced for strong horses when extra control is needed.
