Very popular in the show ring - Need more control than an ordinary snaffle? The Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Beval Bit has a mild lever action. This causes the cheeks to tilt forwards and the mouthpiece to lift up. The horse simultaneously feels the poll pressure and the upward action of the bit within the mouth. It is very effective for horses or ponies that are strung out or poke their nose. It is especially useful for the child or novice rider who does not possess either the technique or the strength in the leg to obtain a nice round outline. This 70mm ring gives a little more help than the 55mm ring. The 14mm mouthpiece normally offers extra lift from the shoulder and takes up less room in the mouth than thicker mouthpieces.
The Secret of the Salox
is the high thermal conductivity. This basically means that the mouthpiece of the bit warms up to about 30oC within the first few fractions of a second, whilst a stainless steel bit takes over 7 seconds. Again, when the bit moves in the mouth as the rein aids are applied the mouthpiece quickly adjusts to the new temperature. In essence, therefore the rein aids are more definitive because the bit no longer feels like a foreign body in the mouth. This equals a more relaxed acceptance of the bit. Horses that have previously been inwardly fixated on the bit and/or overactive have proven to be attentive and responsive to the aids provided by the Salox bits.
