Herm Sprenger Turnado Loose Ring Snaffle
The Herm Sprenger Turnado Loose Ring Single Jointed Snaffle Bit is a traditional single jointed snaffle with a unique design that allows it to be more comfortable for the horse than ordinary snaffles. It was discovered that the cavity of the horse's mouth where the bit sits is smaller than originally assumed, therefore the Turnado bit is designed with the center joint turned by 45 degrees to adapt to the anatomy of the horses mouth, thus ensuring that when the reins are pulled, the link rests fully on the tongue without squeezing it or applying pressure on the palate. This maximizes the tongue's sense of touch as clear instructions are given through the reins.
Herm Sprenger from Germany is renowned for its outstanding quality and technologically advanced designs. The Sprenger seal of quality has guaranteed safety and precise workmanship for over 135 years.
The Sensogan metal is an improvement on Sprenger's patented aurigan metal. Sensogan has a reduced copper content as well as added manganese which helps to regulate the oxidation of the bit metal making the taste even more pleasant for the horse. The reduction of copper discharge into the horse's saliva also helps to keep the white gold color of the sensogan bit brilliant for a longer time.
- Sensogan has improved the properties of aurigan by regulating the oxidative process
- The bits taste good to the horse and encourage salivation and bit acceptance
- White gold color has an elegant look
- Sensogan does not tarnish easily
The Herm Sprenger Turnado Loose Ring Snaffle Bitlies perfectly in the horses's mouth because the mouthpiece is angled forward by 45 degrees. In contrast to other loose ring snaffles the aids given with the reins on this bit reach the horse's mouth more precisely but remain soft. This bit is more readily accepted and also helps to prevent tongue vices such as putting the tongue over the bit.
- Metal: Sensogan with stainless steel rings
- Thickness: 16 mm or 18 mm
- Ring size: 70 mm (2.75590")
- To make sure the bit is fitted correctly in the horses mouth, the arrow on one butt end must always be on the left hand side pointing forward.
