Official Bit of the USEF Enters the Hunter Ring: Neue Schule Introduces New Line of American D Bits

Riverhead, NY (May 10,2016) “Neue Schule is excited to now bring the quality and comfort of Neue Schule bits to the hunter and jumper rings,” announced Mette Larsen, President and founder of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery, the United States distributer of Neue Schule bits. “Every Neue Schule bit is crafted with the horse’s comfort and well-being in mind. Our new line of D Bits, geared toward the American Hunter and Jumper markets, will be no different. We look forward to more hunters and jumpers having better trips with our new bits.”

As the Official Bit of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), Neue Schule once again lived up to its top-notch reputation with the introduction of the new D Bits. The D Bits are an elegant expression of respect for the classic Hunter D Style, while using advancements like Neue Schule’s patented Salox Gold® metal to create a more comfortable and effective tool in the horses’ mouths. Neue Schule bits allow greater thermal conductivity for immediate adjustment to a horse’s mouth temperature.

The new D Bit line is tailored to meet the highest standards, and will be available in five trusted Neue Schule mouthpiece types— Tranz (angled lozenge), Demi Anky (ergonomic single joint), Turtle Top (double-jointed shell-shape link), Verbindend (ergonomic tongue channel), and Waterford (optimum directional control).

As a proud supporter of the hunter/jumper horse industry, Neue Schule is currently sponsoring the Equestrian Sport Production Spring Series, which runs April 6 to May 16 in Wellington, Florida. Neue Schule kicked off the Spring Series by sponsoring the Neue Schule $10,000 Open Jumper Stake during the first week of showing. Florida rider Victoria ‘Tori’ Colvin and her junior jumper, Don Juan won the class against 49 other competitors. Colvin and Don Juan were richly rewarded by Neue Schule with the Neue Schule bit, a bit bag, and an embroidered cooler after their win.

Outside of the hunter/jumper world, Neue Schule was a sponsor of the 2016 Adequan Global Dressage Festival also held in Wellington. As a returning sponsor, the company presented the Neue Schule Best Hands Award to riders who demonstrated effective and soft hands while competing throughout the CDI weeks of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival show series.
