The Neue Schule flex design concept is engineered to deliver a guaranteed and optimised alignment of the mouthpiece with the sensitive surfaces of the equine mouth, resulting in enhanced bit stability
 
The carefully profiled surfaces and component angles translate into many great improvements in comfort and communication that deliver performance enhancements for the horse and rider.
 
The turtle top naturally sits further back in the mouth negating the temptation to over-tighten the cheekpieces. The resulting improvement in bit positioning delivers greater clarity through the rein aids and eliminates extra pressure in the commisures and poll.
 
With the cannons having restricted upward movement chomping and chewing is discouraged helping to prevent damage to the tooth enamel
 
The unique flattened shape of the underside of the cannons combined with the horizontally positioned loops on the tongue provides a naturally large weight bearing surface. This provides comfortable low tongue pressure whilst taking up less room than the old idea of using a thicker bit. Feel and responsiveness are enhanced.
 
The turtle top link fits comfortably under the palatine arch and cannot strike up into the upper palate. This reduces the likelihood of the horse opening its mouth thus reducing the need for a flash noseband or other restraint
 
The mouthpiece is designed to sit centred and arched over the tongue safely helping to prevent sideways tongue evasions.
 
The stable and comfortable turtle top mouthpiece re-focuses the inattentive mouth back onto the rein aids in order to achieve a soft consistent contact. It is effectively designed to help those horses that have difficulty flexing and rounding themselves over the bit, in order to achieve a true and correct outline. Ideal for the busy, over-active mouth.
 
All neue schule mouthpieces are manufactured from the unique salox fold. The high thermal conductivity and softness combined with the strength of salox gold promotes relaxed acceptance and focuses the horse on the rein aids as opposed to the presence of the bit within the mouth.
 
The turtle top flex with universal cheek provides a number of rein settings including the flexibility to add a curb strap. Whatever option you choose, the flattened underside of the flex cannons with their anatomy-inspired recesses are held parallel to the tongue regardless of the riding activity you enjoy.
Usually sourced to promote outline and assist with turning whilst offering varying desgree of control for jumping and faster work in general. The main ring on the NS universal sweeps away from the cheek, this has almost eradicated the all too common problem of rubbing with traditional 3 and 4 ring designs

Customer Reviews

Avg customer rating:  

Fred has had a lot of bits in his short life(6) he plays constantly, gets tongue over and back, but seems happier in this bit than others. The tranz had little control, French link was fine for hacking. Not happy in Waterford. Loose ring KK training was recipe for so much tongue play it was going crazy.Found happy mouth Pelham restrictive and made so much saliva that it was over the top. Hacks out very relaxed in this, jumping with more control when needed and used it with elasticated drop when hunting. Nothing will be perfect without time and training but after 16 months of angst this has been very helpful. 

7023u Turtle top with flex Universal

Happy horse moved from a Cheltenham gag to turtle top with universal sides for a really strong but sensitive horse, he is really comfortable in this with the rein on the snaffle ring even for xc!
