This Neue Schule Turtle Tactio™ Flex™ Eggbutt Bit with 16mm Salox® Gold mouthpiece is specifically engineered to accommodate a horse with a larger or more sensitive tongue. With TongueSMART™, this bit often negates the need to shut the horse’s mouth. TongueSMART focuses rein pressure to the central part of the tongue while diverting pressure away from the sensitive regions near the bars.

The unique central Turtle link brings the proximal ends of the cannons to their closest separation possible. The Flex concept of widening the surfaces that lie parallel to the plane of the tongue reduces the pressure further. With any kind of noseband, the closed mouth easily accommodates the mouthpiece, with the effective thickness in the region of the inter-dental space being the smallest in the Neue Schule range.

This design also adds stability, often proving a confidence-giver leading toward a more consistent contact. The eggbutt reinforces the straightening and turning aids. Particularly useful for the young horse to establish bend. It is also highly recommended for the novice rider who may not fully support their inside rein as the eggbutt will not allow the mouthpiece to slide across the mouth to the inside.

Legal for use in dressage legal.

Why choose a Neue Schule bit?

Neue Schule’s brand philosophy is, “That which is good for the horse is all that matters.” Their philosophy carries through into all aspects of engineering and producing precision bits. You can rest assured that your Neue Schule bit is designed to promote a harmonious partnership between you and your horse.

Neue Schule’s biologically inert mouthpiece metal, Salox Gold, is designed specifically for horses to maintain the natural warmth and softness of a horse’s mouth. By combining three scientific approaches, Salox supports pacifying and quietening the mouth:

1) High thermal diffusivity (warm). The bit rapidly reaches and maintains mouth temperature so that the mouthpiece does not feel cold for long.

2) Just soft enough. The bit material is softer than tooth enamel to ensure that if a horse bites it, the force is safely, comfortably absorbed into the material rather than reflected onto the teeth. It’s also just soft enough to dampen acoustic waves that would otherwise ring into the horse’s jaw.

3) Neutral taste. Salox Gold is low in bioactivity. It promotes a quiet, receptive mouth by discouraging the horse to explore the bit for taste. The addition of aluminum in the metal, which forms an insoluble alumina (oxide) coating, traps the metal ions that would create taste.

In-house scientists, engineers and riders conduct all of the brand’s research and development. Neue Schule bits are ergonomically designed using the latest in engineering and CAD technologies. Sizes range from 4" to 6½". Individual molds are made for every ¼" increment to ensure anatomically correct sizing.

Neue Schule Bits are the Official Bit of U.S. Equestrian.
