Neue Schule Waterford Bit
- A design for more control.
- Does your horse lean, snatch or pull?
- Does he fully understand the aids but continues to ignore you?
- Do you have an independent seat with hands that will reward once he responds?
The Neue Schule Waterford is designed to give you the control back whilst eradicating the fighting and pulling that often causes damage ultimately leading to a hard mouth. As the Waterford is flexible and bends in every direction it usually suits all types of mouth conformation, including big, fat tongues.
This slimmer, innovative Waterford mouthpiece features our ergonomic LipSMART shelf which usually eradicates the previous common problem of rubs.
Sizes : 5″ to 6.25″ with 14mm mouthpiece thickness and 70mm rings
Metals are the first choice for modern horse bits. They have the basic strength to meet the demands of a powerful sport and recreation such as riding and can be formed into an infinite range of precisely defined shapes.

Let’s take these three requirements from the pure science perspective:
