Does your horse hollow and poke his nose? This will help obtain a rounder outline. If your horse is constantly resisting and coming above the bit the action of the Neue Schule Baucher shows him the way down by employing mild poll pressure. Simultaneously the mouthpiece lifts up within the mouth taking pressure off the tongue and bars. In essence the head lowering aids are clear and this action combined with the Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge have made the mouthpiece so comfortable that once achieved, a more consistent contact can be encouraged. The 16mm is a comfortable thickness for young horses.

measure a bit:
A bit should fit your horse’s mouth so that the mouthpiece extends approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) beyond the horse’s lips on either side, but not so tight that the horse might be pinched by any movable cheek pieces. You also don’t want a great length of bit hanging out of the horse’s mouth. The different parts of the mouthpieces on bits are made to sit on specific areas of the mouth. So for the bit to be effective, the bit needs to contact those areas properly. You also don’t want the bit pulling through the horse’s mouth when you pull on a rein. Measure an old bit you know already fits. Use a tape measure to measure from the inside of each cheek piece or ring .Use a piece of string about 12” (30cm) long. Tie a knot about 2 inches (5cm) in. Put it through your horse’s mouth, with the knot against the lips on one side. Mark the opposite side with a marker or little piece of tape
