With the use of 2 reins in combination with a special cheekpiece for gag bits this bit enables an effective and precise control on the horse‘s mouth and poll.
Particularly suitable for horses that tend to push forward. The pressure on the poll that the rider achieves gives maximum control. Gag bits are very popular in the fields of Jumping and Polo.
KK ULTRA – Compared to conventional bits, the double jointed KK ULTRAs have a middle link – also known as the bean – that is shortened and angled forward by 45°.
Only with this angle the middle link lies gently on the tongue resulting in even and constant contact to allow clear instructions through the reins.
The innovative KK ULTRA bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitvity of the horse‘s tongue which multiplies the perceptions from signals given by the bit. When the reins are pulled the middle part of the KK ULTRA fully rests on the tongue without squeezing and the connection rings roll on the tongue. The tongue‘s sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions can be given.
The KK ULTRA bits provide an incomparable precise contact between rider and horse. A huge improvement can normally be seen immediately when switching to a KK ULTRA bit.
The anatomically adapted mouthpiece is very comfortable for the horse as the rider can give softer instructions and the horse‘s suppleness is supported harmoniously.
SENSOGAN® – the new bit material developed by Sprenger – is the result of additional development and consequently the improvement of our original material, Aurigan. We have built on the success and positive features of Aurigan, specifically the taste and salivation aspects to give an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. It is the distinctive composition of copper, manganese and zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special. With a reduced copper content the oxidation process is still maintained, however, the extraordinary combination with manganese is what makes the difference. This combination results in a smoother and more regulated process of oxidation. Tests show a very positive influence on the horse’s satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform. The copper discharge quantity into the horse’s saliva is reduced considerably, which helps to keep the noble white- gold colour for a longer time. The new ingredient manganese on the other hand is an important micronutrient. As a crucial component and activator of enzymes, manganese is highly relevant for building up connective tissue as well as for the muscle and energy metabolism. It can therefore be helpful in preventing muscle tension and in supporting stress reduction. Beyond that, manganese is needed for the reduction of histamine and can prevent allergic skin reactions. Also, the feed industry discovered manganese to be a promising food additive that is gaining in importance in modern feeding of sport horses.
AURIGAN is not just a colour, but a taste that horses love.
AURIGAN provides a specific smell which can even be realized by the human nose. Horses love this special smell and taste and therefore accept the bit rapidly. Vendors of "down market products" have tried to copy AURIGAN for a long time. These copies seem to offer the same advantages like original AURIGAN as they also have the same shiny golden colour. However, in addition to copper there are other materials like aluminium added which inhibit the oxidation and therefore cannot attain the same beneficial effect. It is also claimed that one of the other materials is warming up faster in the horse’s mouth therefore giving a pleasurable feeling when accepting the bit — a statement that was confounded by tests. AURIGAN warms up extremely quickly in the horse’s mouth — faster than any other material used in equestrian sports. As a consequenceAURIGAN also conveys a pleasant feeling for the horse in this aspect.
