Greatly clarifies and emphasises the signals through the rein. Promoting self carriage and throughness, a true outline and freedom through the shoulder can be developed. The Verbindend has consistently helped eradicate tongue evasions, encouraging the horse to soften and relax through the jaw. The cleverly curved mouthpiece can also enhance the development of the bend for lateral work and smaller circles. This dressage legal snaffle is not severe, so if you are a pleasure rider and simply wish to lift the forehand then this bit is a logical choice.
Bought this bit for my Thbd that learned to be heavy on his forhand due to soreness in his SI. I had his SI issue corrected but he didn’t have the trust that he wouldn’t hurt working from the hind end still. Bought the Verbendend bit and it’s allowing me to reteach him about correct balance. The bit is doing everything that the product info said it would! Highly recommend in the proper situation.
My horse loves his Neue Schule Verbindend bit. He is a 5yr old 17.3h big powerful boy. Other bits that were tried on him couldn’t get him to accept the contact. The Verbindend bit changed his ride completely. He went from stiff & not accepting the contact to supple & extremely compliant to the contact. This bit was a game changer for my horse. I highly recommend it!!!
