Sprenger NovoContact Lozenge Loose Ring Snaffle – 14mm
Novocontact bits are designed to create a unique oval shape which widens the contact surface on the tongue while the rider keeps a steady contact.
As the rider gives a rein aid the mouthpiece turns forward and the contact surface gets narrower, ensuring more precise and effective communication.
novocontact bits improve the interaction between horse and rider for a better contact and acceptance of the bit.
Double jointed novocontact bits are also ideal to use on horses that occasionally tend to pull against the hand, but are too sensitive to be ridden with stronger bits.
novocontact bits are developed on the latest scientific research and are suitable for every type of horse.
The bits have been successfully tested and approved by professional and leisure riders and are available in single and double jointed versions.

SENSOGAN® is a new bit material developed by SPRENGER and is the result of two years of research and development aiming to improve on the AURIGAN material which has made SPRENGER bits so popular with so many professional and amateur riders.
SENSOGAN® has improved properties but also a new appearance. The white-gold colour gives the bit a discreet and elegant look and due to the improved material mix, SENSOGAN® does not tarnish easily as the chewing activity of the horse is optimally supported. The bit will stay true to its white gold colour for much longer and can also be polished to a high shine at any point in its lifetime. The new SENSOGAN® range is identified by its unique stamped black ring on the cheeks of the mouthpieces.
The special challenge in developing SENSOGAN® was to maintain the positive features of Aurigan yet to intensify them, giving an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. In the twenty or so years that Aurigan has been available, many companies have copied its colour but never its properties. Sprenger knew the time was right to launch their new optimal bitting collection with an unmatched look anywhere else in the market.
It is the distinctive composition of Copper, Manganese and Zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special. The reduced copper content combined with the manganese results in a more regulated process of oxidation. Tests with the veterinary college of Hannover and the German Riding School in Warendorf showed without doubt this combination of metals has a positive influence on the horses satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform.
Manganese is known to assist with building up connective tissue as well as for muscle and energy metabolism, it is also known to reduce histamine and can help prevent skin reactions. The feed industry has recently recognised manganese as an important feed additive for competition horses.
Available in a wide range of the popular bit styles and sizes from Sprenger including the KK Ultra, Dynamic RS, WH Ultra and Turnado ranges, plus many other individual weymouths, bradoons and jumping and training bits. Different bit rings can also be ordered to match stainless steel or bronze coloured bridle work.
Make sure the bit is fitted correctly in the mouth. The arrow must always be on the left hand side pointing forwards.
