The Neue Schule Waterford Nelson Running Cheek Gag Bit is the perfect choice for horses that lean on the bit and snatch the rein in an evasion attempt. This is perfect for strong horses which require a stronger poll pressure without upping the mouthpiece severity of the bit and features a redesigned waterford mouthpiece.
Neue Schule have redesigned the classic waterford with lip rests to eradicate rubbing to the sensitive corners of the lips. This prevents friction but still prevents the horse from taking hold or leaning on the bit.
This bit features full Nelson cheeks which aid in turning and are a firm favourite for use in strong horses whilst jumping complex obstacles. The cheek of this bit is often selected for horses that are prone to rubbing as the static cheek piece reduces friction and improves the horses confidence in the stability of the bit. This bit must always be used in conjunction with bit cheeks to gain the correct pressure distribution.
This strong bit is fantastic for use during faster work such as jumping but should only be employed by knowledgeable riders as misuse can cause oral damage.
This bit is not dressage legal and is available with a 14mm mouthpiece in a variety of widths.
