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.

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.
