Neue Schule Bits
After seeing for herself the difficulties faced when finding the right bit, founder of Neue Schule Heather Hyde started one of the UK’s first bit rental company in the late 1990s.
Fitting a ‘new school’ of thinking, Neue Schule Horse Bits are embodied in the refined designs, more accommodating profiles and cutting-edge materials found in Neue Schule Horse bits.
Decades of insight into the dynamics of communication between horse and rider have provided the foundations for developing principles Neue Schule works by when producing their bits.
“All of our bits are the product of in-depth research and development from strength testing and chemical analysis to product trials and evaluation. Our well known NS Salox Gold material and refined designs are testament to this.”
Following are just three of the aspects Neue Schule are continually mindful of during the development of their bits:
‘Hot’ and ‘cold’ are sensations for the horse that depend on the rate at which heat energy is transferred from, or to, an object in contact with it.
There is a possibility that many horses will make variable degrees of contact between the teeth and the bit.
Provided the bit is comfortable, there should now be nothing that interests the horse about the bit that can become a distraction to the rider’s aids.
Neue Schule discovered that metal ions in contact with epithelial cells (cells that serve as a barrier to protect from viruses) cause a volatile reaction that affects the horse’s sense of smell and taste. Stainless steel illustrates how such stimulants can be suppressed, through an insoluble protective layer of chromium dioxide on the surface that locks in alloy metals whose oxides would otherwise be bio-available and affect a horse’s sense of taste. Neue Schule adds aluminium to the mouthpiece of bits because aluminium doesn’t produce volatile compounds
