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.

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.


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


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.






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?


  1. As the palate is narrower than originally assumed the lozenge in the centre was shortened (no pressure on the palate).
  2. 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
    squeezing it.
  3. The tongues sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions are given through the reins.





Important Information


Make sure the bit is fitted correctly in the mouth. The arrow must always be on the left hand side pointing forwards.






Please Note:

For the purposes of trials of this item, you may be sent an
Aurigan Item if there are no Sensogan ones in stock.   If you would prefer to purchase a Sensogan
one at the end of the trial then this can be arranged for you.   The material of the mouthpiece wouldnt
alter the effects of the trial as much as the type of mouthpiece would.
