About the Aurigan Mouthpiece
It is oxidized AURIGAN bits that produce the distintive and pleasant
taste that horses love. This particular taste encourages horses to chew
and produce saliva which leads to rapid acceptance of the AURIGAN bit.
The extraordinary advantages of AURIGAN as a material for bits has been
proved by scientific research. The excellent acceptance of AURIGAN in
the horses mouth has been confirmed by a long-term study at the
University if Hanover.
AURIGAN is a special nickle-free alloy which, due to the inclusion of
silicon, combines the oxidation advantages of pure copper with maximum
strength. This is guaranteed by the unique formula and composition of
AURIGAN which exceed the quality of German Silver.
A high copper content in a bit material does not always result in
optimum oxidation. Aluminium and nickle ingredients actually inhibit the
oxidisation process of the metal in the horses mouth slowing down the
AURIGAN bits ensure perfect harmony and satisfy the highest demands of
competition, together with the expectations of ambitious leisure riders.
About the KK Ultra Mouthpiece
The KK ULTRA bits take
advantage of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue. Did you know
that because the tongue is extremely sensitive it multiplies perceptions
in this area dramatically?
You might also recognize the feeling if the human tongue finds a
little how in the tooth it gives the impression there is a huge gap. A
horses tongue works in much the same way, whilst eating it can filter
out small stones from the food. In collaboration with SPRENGER, the
Veterinary University in Hanover started a new project. They examined
more that 70 horses heads and used various methods to take
The analysis of this information produced unexpected results:
- The interior of the volume of the mouth was less than had been previously thought
- The palate was both smaller and very often flatter than previously imagined
- The space left for a bit is therefore very limited
SPRENGER used this new information for the development of the KK ULTRA. The aim was to improve the bits bit not make them too
How can the sense of touch be stimulated to obtain the desired effect?
- As the palate is narrower than originally assumed the lozenge in the centre was shortened (no pressure on the palate).
- The angle of the link was turned at 45. This ensures that when the
reins are pulled the rounded link rests fully in the tongue without
- The tongues sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions are given through the reins.
Make sure the bit is fitted correctly in the mouth. The arrow must always be on the left hand side pointing forwards.
