Does your horse have a large tongue and sensitive bars?
Or do you have a horse with a small mouth and very little room for a bit?
The Neue Schule Turtle Tactio has been designed for all of the above. The Turtle Tactio mouthpiece has a locking link and unique shape which allows the bit to almost float in the horse’s mouth giving room for the tongue and restricting pressure to the horse’s bars.
NOTE: If we don't have your size in stock we can mostly get it ordered and to you within 2 weeks.
Please contact us if you require a bit fit.
