Neue Schule Turtle Tactio Jumper bit. These bits are pre-loved but in excellent condition!
The NS Turtle Top comes standard in a 16mm mouthpiece width. Specifically engineered to accommodate the larger or sensitive tongue. Often negates the need to shut the mouth.
Anatomy-inspired double jointed bit design with enhanced mouthpiece stability, through optimised alignment of the mouthpiece surfaces to the tongue and palate.
A showjumping favourite that sits them on their hocks and helps make tight turns. Designed for extra control, outline and much more help with straightness and turning. Often the answer for the very enthusiastic horse with a sensitive mouth that may even be prone to rubs, chafing etc. A curb strap may be employed on the top ring for extra control. Often used as a flat work training tool on the main ring to mimic the Baucher.
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. For most designs Flex delivers parallel co-alignment of the Turtle Top™ dome with the equine palate.
In selected designs we allow Flex to deliver some firm but fair additional pressure to the tongue and poll using a lever action-induced rotation of the mouthpiece. The extra pressure obtainable is carefully restricted with Flex limiting the range of additional rotation to around 10 degrees.
