New from Sprenger(February 13, 2013)
Coming out soon from Sprenger will be two new bits in their Unversal range. A Dynamic Universal featuring a gentle curvature in the arms of the bit and a 16mm Ultra Universal. This will be ideal for horses already using the 16mm Loose Ring version but found the 18mm Universal a little too thick.
There is also more choice in thickness in the Balkenhol snaffle range. Orginally known as the Conrad, it was one of the first bits to feature a slight unique curvature in the arms of the mouthpiece which resulted in eliminating the nutcracker action which some horses resent. It will now be available in a 16mm mouthpiece in the snaffle and in a 14mm in a Bradoon. The mouthpiece is still been used on the Universal cheek.
The WH Ultra Braddoon will be soon available in a 14mm thickness.
