Neue Schule Bits Helps Show Jumpers Increase Performance Levels Through Educational Ride & Learn Program Featuring Candice King
West Palm Beach, FL (January 29, 2013) – Neue Schule bits was excited to sponsor the Ride & Learn educational program featuring Candice King entitled “The Efficient Jumper Ride” as a part of the 2013 Ride & Learn Series presented by The Palm Beach Riding Academy during the 2013 Winter Equestrian Festival. King educated onlookers on the finer points of riding in the jumpers and also shared her vast amount of experience and expertise with the participants and audience in attendance.
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. King said she is very excited to begin working her own horses in the Neue Schule bits that she was given during the Ride and Learn program.
Neue Schule bits was especially proud to be sponsoring this program as it is a reflection of the level of dedication they have to researching leading-edge information and educating equestrians on all aspects of riding and performance as it relates to bits. Each of the 12 participants of the Ride & Learn program were given a gift certificate for the Neue Schule bit of their choice, in addition to King receiving the bits for her horses.
Mette Larsen of MetLar Premium Performance Saddlery is the US Distributor for Neue Schule. 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 showing the selection of these amazing bits,” Larsen says. 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. “The better designed the bit is, the easier it is for the rider and the horse,” she continues, “ 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.”
As a part of their commitment to educating riders, Larsen presented this information earlier, along with bit expert Beth Haist of The Horse of Course, during the International Equestrian Education program founded by world-class equestrian Danielle Goldstein. In addition, Neue Schule will also be sponsoring a Lunch and Learn in March as further demonstration of their dedication to providing educational information so equestrians and their horses can perform at their best.
