Is your horse sensitive or fussy in the contact? 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.
This bit will help with
Chomping or chewing on bit
Getting Tongue over the bit
Tongue sticking out of mouth
Inconsistent in the contact
Sucking behind the contact
