Meet Our Neue Schule Team of Ambassadors




“I have always believed in the importance of finding a bit to suit each horse and their individual sensitivities and needs.

Since discovering Neue Schule bits, I have seen a remarkable transformation in my horses, and with the wide variety of different shaped mouthpieces and options they have available, I would not consider using anything else!

Neue Schule offers the perfect bit to suit the unique needs of each horse in my barn, and with a carefully constructed, thought out design for each bit element, I highly recommend everyone try Neue Schule bits.”






“I have been very impressed with the Neue Schule bits on my horses. The bits are a nice weight and designed to fit comfortably in the horse’s mouth.

My horses salivate more in these bits for a soft connection.”









“I’ve been competing at the top level of show jumping for over 20 years. In order to continue to compete at this level consistently, you need the best equipment.

I have found that in Neue Schule Performance Bits! All of my horses have continued to improve with the added benefit of the Neue Schule Bit.”







“Neue Schule bits are an amazing advancement in bit technology, not only in their style but also functionality. I use them on almost every horse I ride on a daily basis.

My horses are more responsive and less fussy because they are more comfortable– it’s as simple as that!

Neue Schule has created a product that all equestrians should take advantage of.”







“I have enjoyed using the range of bits from Neue Schule. Overall they are the most ergonomically designed bits I have ever encountered.

The horses are all very happy in them and for me that is the biggest test. I believe that the ergonomic design as well as the lighter weight of these bits makes for a happier horse!”








“Neue Schule bits make so much sense! They’re easier to fit in the horse’s mouth, lighter weight and a fantastic metal compound that the horses love.

The new mouthpiece design is comfortable and conforms to the horse’s mouth like no other. Paragon and all my other horses love them.








“Being a classically trained dressage trainer and competitor, it is extremely important to me that my horses have a wonderful soft connection to the bridle. One of the most important ingredients to that is a quality bit.

The Neue Schule bits have impressed me with not only their weight and quality metal, but also in the comfort the horses feel when they are being ridden in them.

Neue Schule has many types to choose from, so I highly recommend them for all kinds of horses.”







“Since I started using Neue Schule bits on my Grand Prix dressage horse, Don Daiquiri, he is much happier in the mouth and more steady in the contact. The biggest change that I have noticed is that his mouth is more foamy and his chewing has increased.

Neue Schule has a variety of different bits for all levels of horses to meet the needs of every horse, and I look forward to using them on all of the horses that I ride and train.

The entire Neue Schule team are very supportive and helpful, ensuring that the best results are achieved for each horse.”








“The Neue Schule bits are tops! The horses love them because they are lightweight and comfortable. There are many variations to accommodate a horse’s individual mouth conformation.

These bits are real performance enhancers!”

“I have been pleasantly surprised with the Neue Schule bits. My horses are generally more pliable and soft when I work them in these bits. I find it’s easier to get a horse to take a hold and stay there.”








My top horse, “Verdades,” was in a horrific accident in the summer of 2011 which resulted in a severely fractured jaw. He underwent a lengthy surgery and his jaw was held together with wire, rods and screws for months. It was unclear whether this horse would ever wear a bit again. As he healed, I began walking him on a loose rein in a snaffle and when x-rays allowed us to go back to work, I proceeded with caution.

Even though we made our CDI debut in 2012 at the Small Tour and had success in the Int. II, we constantly struggled with his mouth. He was very “busy,” and when we began working the Grand Prix, it was clear we needed help. My trainer suggested I call Barbara Biernat at Horse and Rider. She sent me a package of Neue Schule bits to try and from the first moments, I noticed improvements. Before I had even mounted, my horse was salivating and quieter in his mouth. He seemed more willing to “hold” the bits rather than spit them out. My score in the CDI GP increased by 5% in just one competition!

Even though we have since further refined my horse’s bit selection, the difference was clear from the beginning. You can have all the best training in the world, but having the right equipment to deliver that training is priceless. Whether I am looking to prevent a problem or solve a new one, I turn first to Neue Schule bits!





“I like the many different options with the Neue Schule bits. My Lady likes to change bits often and needs something soft in her mouth. We both like the feel of the Neue Schule bits.

In general I like that there are many varieties in the bits because every horse is different and it seems that they have something for designed for every horses needs.”




“Truthfully I am cautious to try new equipment on my horses 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. There is a lot of complicated science behind the makeup of these bits 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 make up of the metal. Fiero HGF has a small mouth but because the ergonomic design of the Neue Schule Team Up Snaffle, it sits still and quiet—he is clearly more comfortable. This has allowed me to find the optimum
balance between lightness and security within the contact.





“We love the fit and ultimate comfort that Neue Schule bits provide for our horses. The difference has been clear on each horse, from the first ride!









“My overall impression of the Neue Schule bits is they are well crafted with the construction of the horse’s mouth in mind and made from high quality lightweight material that is both durable and comfortable for the horse.

My favorite bit is the loose ring because it works well for daily schooling. The Neue Schule bits have helped improve communication between me and my horses.”
