Neue Schule Bits Supports All Areas Equestrian Sport by Sponsoring Breakfast at USEF Convention
Louisville, KY (February 21, 2013) – Neue Schule bits was proud to show their continuing support of all areas in equestrian sport by sponsoring a breakfast during the USEF Convention recently held in Louisville, Kentucky. As a part of the sponsorship, Neue Schule raffled off a gift certificate for a bit of choice to one lucky winner, and Susie Koos Acker was more than happy to claim her prize. “I am excited about winning this bit as it is very difficult to find good quality, pony-sized bits that are proportioned correctly,” she said. “I have a young pony who I am just starting, and she has had some serious dental issues. It’s been difficult to find a bit she is happy with, so I’m looking forward to trying the eggbutt bit, and I am hoping that the French link mouth piece will be just the ticket I am looking for!” Acker has been an avid
horsewoman for over 35 years, and she has spent the last 15 focused on driving. She currently is driving Welsh Ponies, and is excited to learn more about Neue Schule’s leading edge bits, especially as they relate to improved driving performance and comfort for her ponies.
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. All of Neue Schule’s bits are available in ¼ inch size increments to ensure an exact fit, and each increment has its own mold so that the bit maintains the anatomical integrity and design of the bits. “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.”
Neue Schule will also be sponsoring a Lunch and Learn in March during the 2013 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival as further demonstration of their dedication to providing educational information so equestrians and their horses can perform at their best.
