Sprenger’s latest invention is a unique oval shape design which widens the contact area of the mouthpiece on the horse’s tongue, without putting pressure on the palate.
When the rider keeps a steady contact, the flat part of the mouthpiece lies sensitively on the horse’s tongue. As the rider gives a rein aid the mouthpiece turns forward meaning the contact surface gets narrower, ensuring a more precise and effective communication.
When giving the reins, the mouthpiece turns back to its soft and smooth position with the flat part lying delicately on the tongue.
The double jointed Novocontact bits are also ideal to use on horses that occasionally tend to pull against the hand, but are too sensitive to be ridden with stronger bits.
Available in 12.5cm, 13.5cm
Made in Germany
While our products are made of high quality materials they are not indestructible! Proper care and attention will ensure that you and your horse get to enjoy them as long as possible.
BRUSHING BOOTS AND BELL BOOTS
Our brushing boot and bell boot range should be hand washed to ensure their longevity we recommend that you brush them off and give the fabric surface a wipe with soapy water and a soft damp cloth when needed. Continual hosing of fabric brushing boots will compromise decrease the life of this product. Please note that we can't provide refunds for brushing boots that have scuff marks, purely because that's what they are designed to do. We select the most durable products available, however they aren't indestructible.
HINT: A bra bag or pillow case liner (that has a zip) is a great way of ensuring your boots and bell boots avoid unnecessary scrapes in the washing machine.
Our bandages can be washed in the washing machine. To avoid annoying tangles in your bandages (and the ten minutes it will take to untangle them) we recommend that you fold them in half and tie a loop knot in the centre. This will prevent from getting tangle. Don't forget to attach the Velcro to the opposite side (much like you would before rolling them up after use).
At Team Ippico we do love our bandages being white!!! Bright white!! You can use a small amount of bleach in your wash cycle, however nothing beats a good soak in nappy-san and hot water. We always have a two pairs on hand - one for lessons or clinics, and another pair for the warm up before competing.
SADDLE CLOTHS, GIRTH COVERS AND NUMNAH'S:
Our beautiful saddle cloths, girth covers and numnah's are so fabulous that they nearly seem to good to use (don't we all have that saddle cloth that we want to keep in a bag and only get out for special occasions :-).
Our Argento, Saltare and Migilori (with sheepskin) can be washed in the washing machine. However our sheepskin saddle pads, girth covers and numnahs should be washed with care and therefore we recommend using the washing bag that was provided for saddle pads and numnah's at the time of purchase. Brush the sheepskin with a brush when dry to remove the excess dirt before use. Please note that washing after ever use will effect the enzymes of the wool, therefore prolonged life cannot be guaranteed. It is advisable that you wash your sheepskin saddle cloth in a front loading washing machine as the agitator of the top loading machine is far too harsh. Cool cycle with our Bense & Elike Velveton wool wash is recommended.
Our Lucci numnah's are made from Australian merino and therefore should be washed in the washing bag provided at purchase. Again, excessive washing should be avoided as it will help prolong the life of this product. We recommend our Bense & Elike Velveton wool wash.
