Nicholas Fyffe Named as Neue Schule Bits Ambassador

 

Wellington, FL (October 14, 2013)  Neue Schule bits is excited to announce that they have recently named renowned dressage rider, Nicholas Fyffe, as an official ambassador for their unique and ergonomically designed bits.  Fyffe, who relocated to Wellington, Florida, from his native Australia where he was a member of the Australian Dressage Team, said he is proud to represent Neue Schule bits, and is very impressed with the results he has gotten from the wide variety he has already used.

“Truthfully, I am cautious to try new equipment on my horses,” Fyffe admitted, “but as soon as I tried Neue Schule bits, I noticed significant and positive responses.  Thanks to such a diverse selection of Neue Schule bits, as well as variations in thickness and ring size, I’ve found the perfect bits for each of my horses ranging from three year old stallions through to seasoned FEI horses.”

Fyffe explains that he is also impressed with the science behind the design of each Neue Schule bit, and was excited with the opportunity to learn more about the reasons behind why the bits actually improve his riding, training and relationship with his horses.  He feels this learning process fits well with his philosophy that has lead him to success as an equestrian. “The thirst for knowledge and experience in this all consuming lifestyle of dressage has taken me across the globe,” Fyffe described about his dressage career, “During international competitions, training and teaching pursuits, I have trekked each state in Australia, to New Zealand, South Africa, throughout Europe and now, North America.”  In 2010, Fyffe relocated to Wellington, FL, and until 2012, was the assistant trainer to top international rider, Oded Shimoni based at Stillpoint Farm.  He is also the rider and trainer of Robert Dover’s talented PRE stallion, Fiero HGF.  During the past two Winter Equestrian Festivals held in Wellington, Fyffe has won with scores over 70% at all levels ranging from three year old Materiale classes through to Intermediare 1.  “There is a lot of complicated science behind the makeup of these bits,” he continued, “but I just see and feel the results.  This was especially clear with my five year old PRE stallion, Fiero HGF.  Even before I started riding, I noticed that his mouth was quieter and he salivated more freely due to the makeup of the metal.”  Fyffe went on, “Fiero HGF has a small mouth, but the ergonomic design of the Neue Schule Team Up snaffle sits still and quiet, and he is clearly more comfortable.  This has allowed me to find the optimum balance between lightness and security within the contact.”

Fyffe has also found success with other designs, and loves learning more about the various bits that Neue Schule offers. “I am a big fan of the Neue Schule Starter Weymouth, too,” he stated, “and I now have complete confidence that Fiero HGF will make the transition into the double bridle easily with the Neue Schule bits.  The broad range of Neue Schule bits allows me to be more effective as a competitive dressage rider,” Fyffe added, “This is the very reason I’m very proud to be an ambassador for this cutting edge company!”

Neue Schule is especially pleased to be sponsoring Fyffe because of the example he sets for all equestrians to empower themselves through knowledge and learning in order to improve their riding and relationship with their horses. In fact, Neue Schule makes this learning process easier by including product tags on each bit explaining their particular function and purpose.  Through these tags, 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 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.

Neue Schule Bits Welcomes Show Jumping Sensation Candice King as Ambassador

West Palm Beach, FL (October 8, 2013) –  Neue Schule bits recently announced that US show jumping extraordinaire, Candice King, is now one of their endorsed riders and Neue Schule Ambassadors.  King, who was featured in a Ride & Learn educational program sponsored by Neue Schule during the 2013 Winter Equestrian Festival is thrilled about their new relationship.

“A bit is really important because it helps me communicate with my horses,” stated King, “I especially like Neue Schule bits because they are very welcoming to the horse. When in a Neue Schule, they are very content and willing to work, and I like how they sit in the horse’s mouth,” she added.

King explains that she has found success with Neue Schule’s Tranz Angled Lozenge Full Cheek after working with it on her Grand Prix mount, Campbell VDL (Cassini I x Carpaccio).  “He’s got a really soft mouth, so for him, it’s very important to have a bit he’s comfortable with,” she describes, “Having the full cheek helps me steer, and he’s very comfortable with the type of metal that it is.  Working with Neue Schule has been a pleasure,” she stated. “I’m happy with how the bits work and how the horses accept them, but on top of that, it is so nice to work with everyone at Neue Schule!”

Neue Schule bits is especially proud to be sponsoring King because of their shared interest and dedication to educating equestrians on all aspects of riding and performance as it relates to bits.  King has been a successful international competitor for over two decades, representing the United States in 13 Nation’s Cup competitions around the world.  Amongst numerous notable accomplishments, King was the top placed US rider at the 2001 FEI Show Jumping World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden, and was the first American rider since 1968 to win the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II Cup at the Royal International Horse Show in England.

Mette Larsen of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery is the US and Canadian Distributor for Neue Schule bits. She explains that the bits are anatomically designed for the horse’s mouth and create a better platform for the rider-horse connection. “We look forward to working more with Candice, as she experiences the full selection of these amazing bits,” Larsen said.  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 copper alloy that promotes acceptance and communication. “The better designed the bit is, the easier it is for the rider and the horse,” she continued, “ 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.”
