Herm Sprenger KK-Conrad-ULTRA Bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue!
If the human tongue finds a little hole in a tooth it gives the impression that there is huge gap – horses are no different. While eating, a horse can even filter out small stones from food.
Did you know that because the tongue is so extremely sensitive it multiplies perceptions in this area dramatically?" KK-Conrad-ULTRA Bits come in AURIGAN – Sprenger's patented alloy, which encourages salivation. There is a full range of sizes and choice of AURIGAN or Stainless Steel rings.
Aurigan full mouth piece:18mm
Size: 5 1/8
How have Sprenger been able to stimulate the sense of touch to obtain the desired effect?
As the palate is narrower than originally assumed the lozenge in the centre was shortened (this results in no pressure being put on the palate).
The angle of the link was twisted by 45°. This ensures that, when a contact is taken up via the reins, the rounded link rests fully on the tongue without squeezing it.
In short, the sense of touch in the tongue is utilised and not abused, enabling clear instructions to be given through the reins.
