Uniquely shaped, especially sensitive.The new novocontact bits have an unique oval shape design which widens the contact area of the mouthpiece on the horse's tongue, without putting pressure on the palate. When the rider keeps a steady contact, the flat part of the mouthpiece lies sensitively on the horse's tongue. As the rider gives a rein aid the mouthpiece turns forward meaning the contact surface gets narrower, ensuring a more precise and effective communication. When giving the reins, the mouthpiece turns back to its soft and smooth position with the flat part lying delicately on the tongue. This provides best communication between horse and rider as well as improved contact and acceptance of the bit.Double jointed novocontact bits are ideal for use for horses which push downagainst the hand.
