Grand Prix Jumper Danielle Goldstein Joins Neue Schule Bits as an Ambassador

West Palm Beach, FL (June 27, 2013) –  Neue Schule bits is excited to announce that Grand Prix show jumper Danielle Goldstein, who has recently embarked on her European tour while she continues to train for the Israeli national team, has become a Neue Schule Ambassador.  Goldstein prefers Neue Schule as the bit-of-choice for her horses, and became familiar with Neue Schule’s dedication to education, a passion she shares, when Mette Larsen was a speaker during the International Equestrian Education program – a program that Goldstein herself designed. Neue Schule is proud to accompany and support Goldstein on her quest for international equestrian success as she competes in Europe and gears up to ride in the Maccabiah Games in July.

Mette Larsen of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery is the US and Canadian Distributor for Neue Schule. She explained that the bits are anatomically designed for the horse’s mouth and create a better platform for the rider-horse connection. “The better designed the bit is, the easier it is for the rider and the horse,” said Larsen, “ Each bit addresses the various problematic issues that can occur between the horse and the contact with the bit, like pulling on the rider, hiding behind the bit, unevenness in the hand, tongue issues, etc.  The bits are designed to help alleviate some of these issues so that the horse and rider get back to focusing on their ride or their training.”

Goldstein agrees and has experienced these benefits of Neue Schule bits herself.  “The horses are much softer and less fussy, which is a godsend!” she describes.  “I ride my horse, Holly GoLightly, in the Neue Schule Swale.  Holly tends to be very heavy and fussy, and now, she holds her head much steadier without dragging me or coming totally out of a frame.”   Goldstein continues, “I totally love all of them, and I plan on practicing and showing in a number of different styles this year.  My favorite to ride at home is the Waterford Universal 3 ring and Baucher.”

Neue Shule has now made it easier for all riders to select the perfect bit by including informational tags on each product.  These new product tags act as a guide to help select which bits are best to create a better platform for the rider-horse connection, and help address and solve potential problems each individual horse may be experiencing. Neue Schule offers a range of high performance, superior comfort bits that are ergonomically designed, using the latest in engineering and computer aided design (CAD) technologies and incorporate a unique metal alloy with an increased conductivity that promotes acceptance and salivation.

For Goldstein, this same level of innovation, determination and passion has been a driving force throughout her entire life, and she has contributed much of her visionary talent to developing innovative projects that support and grow the equestrian industry in the US. In addition to creating and managing Starwyn Farms in Wellington, Goldstein also developed a groundbreaking International Equestrian Education (IEE) series. The IEE program was offered for the first time this year when she worked in conjunction with the Winter Equestrian Festival to launch this exciting 5 week long course.  She explains how the IEE is designed to provide valuable knowledge, understanding and insight for young riders and adult amateur equestrians, as well as many others involved at all levels of the equine industry.

Bit by Bit, Neue Schule Supports Important Aspects of the Equestrian Industry

 

West Palm Beach, FL (June 27, 2013)  –  Ever since they made their North American debut last fall, Neue Schule has been supporting many important equestrian events and educational programs on this side of the pond, bit by bit.  Using the latest, state of the art designing techniques, Neue Schule bits are wowing and winning over some of the top riders in the world …and their horses.  The news and information about these ergonomically designed bits is spreading fast, and benefitting many aspects of the horse industry. The most recent examples are Neue Schule’s participation in the American Horse Publications Student Fund Silent Auction as well as the Potomac Valley Dressage Association’s Ride for Life benefitting the Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center.  Neue Schule donated a 5.50” 16mm Verbindend Snaffle to each event for their silent auctions, helping to raise money for these important causes.

The AHP Student Fund encourages young people who want to become a part of the equine media and publishing industry.  Neue Schule recognizes the value of sharing information and education through the media, and was very proud to support this fund. The Student Fund silent auction was held during the AHP “Meet at the Peak” 2013 seminar in Colorado Springs, CO, where attendees were able to take advantage some of the amazing attractions this beautiful area of the country has to offer.  Visiting Pikes Peak, the US Olympic Training Center and the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame was on many people’s list of things to do.  The opportunity to take a special trail ride through The Garden of the Gods was also a highlight of the AHP seminar.  Lori Lambert of Holistic.com was the winner of the Verbindend at the AHP ‘Meet at the Peak’; Lambert had heard of the Neue Schule bits and was excited to try them on her dressage and event horse.

During this same weekend on the other side of the country, Neue Schule was especially proud to support the Potomac Valley Dressage Association’s (PVDA) Ride for Life.  This annual weekend family event is held in the Baltimore/Washington area to raise funds for breast cancer research and to improve the lives of those affected and their loved ones.  Since its inception in 2004, the event has raised over $490,000 for the Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center.  The event coincides with a licensed dressage show sponsored by the PVDA, and features one of the premier equestrian nights on the East Coast.  Its Saturday evening Dancing Horse Challenge is a lyrical blend of dance, music, lights and equestrian prowess woven into a touching and theatrical performance.  With performances by international and national riders and Olympians, the Dancing Horse Challenge becomes a call to all to heal, to give, and most importantly to celebrate life!  It is this level of dedication the equestrian industry offers that Neue Schule is proud to support.

Neue Schule bits selected their Verbindend snaffle bit to donate to the auctions.  The NS Verbindend greatly emphasizes the signals through the rein.  By encouraging clarity of the aids, and promoting a true outline, the freedom through the shoulder can be developed, thus promoting self carriage and thoroughness.  The NS Verbindend eradicates tongue evasions by creating a channel for the tongue to lie in, allowing the horse to soften and relax through the jaw.  This mouthpiece can also enhance the development of the bend for lateral work and smaller circles.  This is especially useful for pleasure riders who desire to establish a lighter, softer way of going.

Neue Schule is making it easier for riders of all disciplines to understand and select the perfect bit to meet their goals.  By including product tags on each bit explaining their particular function and purpose, equestrians can relate the technical aspects of each bit to how it applies to their individual horse and riding discipline.  Mette Larsen of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery is the US Distributor for Neue Schule. She explains that the new product tags act as a guide to help select which bits are best to create a better platform for the rider-horse connection, and help solve potential problems “The better designed the bit is, the easier it is for the rider and the horse,” says Larsen, “ Each bit addresses the various problematic issues that can occur between the horse and the contact with the bit, like pulling on the rider, hiding behind the bit, unevenness in the hand, tongue issues, etc.  The bits are designed to help alleviate some of these issues so that the horse and rider get back to focusing on their ride or their training.” Neue Schule offers a range of high performance, superior comfort bits that are ergonomically designed, using the latest in engineering and computer aided design(CAD) technologies and incorporate a unique metal alloy that promotes salivation, acceptance and communication.
