The unique Salox® Gold possesses a high thermal conductivity. This means that the bit will warm to mouth temperature quickly and become ‘neutral’ to the horse, meaning that they are less likely to inwardly fixate on the mouthpiece and instead will be receptive to all the rider’s aids.
Occasionally, the horse’s bit may come into contact with the teeth- namely the incisors (as we put the bit in) and the premolars. In this case, care must be taken to ensure that there is no discomfort or damage to the tooth itself. Salox® Gold differs from standard stainless steel and other copper alloy bits in that it is a slightly softer metal, allowing it to safely absorb impact forces whilst protecting tooth enamel. This can make the mouthpiece easier to accept by the horse.
Neue Schule aims to keep the bit comfortable but neutral in the horse’s mouth. The horse should not inwardly fixate on the bit, but instead be receptive to all our aids. The addition of aluminium which forms a protective insoluble alumina coating solves the issue. It is also self-healing – if the horse bites into the bit the insoluble surface oxide quickly re-forms to re-trap the ions.
Neue Schule is a British brand specialised in bits. To create its different bits, the brand has undertaken scientific research and tests on the anatomy of the horse's mouth.
Each bit has its own specificity. Each bit is designed to use a different pressure point in the horse's mouth (the bars, the palate, the tongue, etc.). Neue Schule wants to focus on the comfort of the horse, as the mouth is the most important link between the rider and the horse.
The NS PACIFIER design is often beneficial for the “short smile” (small distance from the corner of the lip to the muzzle), the sensitive busy mouth or tongue evasions or horse’s that experience difficulty in breathing and swallowing when in an advanced outline. The NS Pacifier depresses the whole of the tongue, much further back, creating a larger airway enhancing the horse’s ability to breathe and swallow. An indication of a restricted airway may be a tense horse that is over salivating or even making a gurgling sound. Also beneficial if tongue evasions are habitual as there is a lot less room for the horse to successfully draw the tongue back, push down on the mouthpiece or get it over the top.
Clean with water after each use and occasionally with a special cleaning product for bits.
