Sprenger Bits

"Harmony on horse-back starts with a well fitting bit."

Sprenger Bits gains its outstanding scientific knowledge of the horse's mouth anatomy through intensive research in collaboration with the Veterinary University of Hanover. The SprengerDevelopment Center continuously works on innovative products with the optimised design and effectiveness, based on current research data. International Top-Riders use Sprenger products and appreciate and confirm their outsanding quality and effectiveness.

The bit operates as a method of communication between rider and horse. It directs the riders rein aids straight to the horse's mouth. As the mouth is one of the most sensitive parts of the horse's body it is important to treat it very carefully. A bit should be adapted to the individual shape of a horse's mouth and should neither be uncomfortable nor awkward for the horse in any way. Choosing the right bit allows effective communication through the reins between rider and horse - a basic requirement for correct riding.
The use of a well fitted, high quality bit means horsemanship and animal welfare are put into practice. We trust that you will enjoy your next ride with Sprenger bits."

sprenger bit dynamic rs


Dynamic RS – ergonomically formed, gentle to the horse’s mouth

Totally dynamic.
The ergonomically formed mouthpiece lies perfectly in the horse´s mouth resulting in soft and even pressure on the entire tongue area, encouraging the horse to chew. In addition this bit supports the contact to the corners of the mouth in a very effective way, keeping the horse on the bit.

The gentle joint in the middle which is angled forward - the characteristic feature of the KK ULTRA - and the fine egg butt design makes it a very friendly bit. The mouthpiece is made of SENSOGAN, the innovative material that ensures a sensitive connection to the horse.

The new DYNAMIC RS bit gives soft but very effective instructions for a better contact between horse and rider.

Overview of the advantages:

The ergonomically formed mouthpiece allows a rapid and balanced effect on the tongue.

  • NO PRESSURE TO THE PALATE : Dynamic RS mouthpieces give even pressure on the entire tongue area.
  • GENTLE TO MOUTH AND TONGUE :supports the contact to the corners of the mouth in an extremely effective way, keeping the horse on the bit.
  • THE LINK OF THE MOUTHPIECE IS TURNED TO THE FRONT BY 45°: this unique angle is the only way to get a true contact with the tongue. When a contact is taken the mouthpiece rolls smoothly over the horse’s tongue and stimulates it in a gentle but effective way. Clearly defined aids can therefore be given through the reins without squeezing the tongue.

sprenger bit wh ultra


 developed by SPRENGER in cooperation with Lisa Wilcox and Ernst Hoyos.

“This unique roller provides a gentle stimulation to the tongue, which encourages the horse to chew, prompting salivation, allowing the acceptance of the bit therefore the relaxation of the jaw. It has been Ernst and my experience that through this gentle stimulation our horses learn more quickly to accept the bit softening their entire top-line enabling us to perform the movements with more relaxation, thoroughness and ultimately more harmony.” Lisa Wilcox

This Sprenger bit uses the tongue’s sense of touch to achieve optimum effect without being sharp.

The WH ULTRAs are highly recommended for horses that are unresponsive to the rein aids. The tongue is gently stimulated to utilise its highly sensitive sense of touch in an incomparable way. The horse gets relaxed and stays focused on the tongue preventing it from being easily distracted and so more responsive to the rein aids of the rider. The end result is complete harmony.

The additional feature of the WH ULTRA Sprenger bit is a unique roller in the center section that brings an even better focus for the horse onto the tongue

sprenger bit kkultra

KK ULTRA - developed according to scientific research

In collaboration with Sprenger, the Veterinary University of Hanover found out that a horse's mouth is smaller and narrower than generally assumed. Based on this scientific information, SPRENGER developed the new KK ULTRA bits with a short lozenge and a link that is turned in front by 45 degrees. That way the mouthpiece creates the best possible effect in the horse's mouth.

The Veterinary University of Hanover and Sprenger measured a variety of horse's heads to prove the space that is available in a horse's mouth. The result is that the mouth cavity is smaller than originally assumed and therefore the space available for a bit is quite limited. The most popular bit thicknesses are 16 and 18 mm nowadays. 

KK ULTRA bits create an incomparable sensitive contact between horse and rider. The anatomically formed mouthpiece lies perfectly in the horse's mouth enabling the rider to give subtle aids. A huge improvement is usually seen immediately when the horse's bit is switched to any kind of KK ULTRA bit.

  • The unique angle of 45 degrees is the only way to get a true contact to the tongue. The round lozenge rolls down smoothly over the tongue and stimulates it in a gentle but effective way. Clearly defined aids can be given through the reins without squeezing the tongue.
  • NO PRESSURE ON THE PALATE the ergonomically designed mouthpiece is shaped like the horse's tongue and therefore taking up less room in the mouth without interfering with the palate.
  • GENTLE TO MOUTH AND TONGUE this mouthpiece encourages a high level of responsiveness by an optimum contact resulting in relaxation and submissiveness

"Other" types of Sprenger Bits

Sprenger Bemelmans Weymouth

The optimum fit of the Bemelmans Weymouth keeps the horse on the bit. It has a smooth, rounded port and the shape of the mouthpiece is adapted to the sensitive palatal arch. The thickness is tapered towards the center. 
The acceptance of this bit results in soft and even distribution of pressure across the entire tongue due to the exceptional form of the mouthpiece. The horse‘s impulse to put the tongue over the bit is nearly neutralised. 
A Weymouth that meets with highest requirements, resulting in relaxed and contented horses.

Sprenger Bit Designs

sprenger bit novocontact

Novocontact bits are based on the latest scientific research and are suitable for every type of horse. The bits have been successfully tested and approved by both professional and leisure riders. Now available in both single and double jointed versions.

Novocontact bits are designed to create a unique oval shape which widens the contact surface on the tongue while the rider keeps a steady contact. As the rider give a rein aid, the mouthpiece turns forward and the contact surface gets narrower, ensuring a more precise and effective communication. Novocontact bits improve the interaction between horse and rider for a better contact and acceptance of the bit.

Test have shown that the single jointed Novocontact bits are highly recommended for horses that do not take the contact confidently. They also provide added benefit for horses with a sensitive mouth, since the rider is able to give precise but soft aids. The double jointed Novocontact bits are also ideal for use on horses that occasionally tend to pull against the hand, but are too sensitive to be ridden with stronger bits.

Sprenger turnado

A new dimension of loose ring snaffles. This bit lies perfectly in the horse's mouth because the mouthpiece is angled forward 45 degrees. In contrast to other loose ring snaffles the aids given with the reins on this new bit reach the the horse's mouth more precisely but still in a soft way. The bit is more readily accepted resulting in prompt and ideal chewing activity. This new loose ring snaffle helps to prevent tongue vices - putting the tongue over the bit often stops almost immediately when this bit is used.

Sprenger Bit Materials

sprenger sensogan


SENSOGAN® – the new bit material developed by Sprenger Bits – is the result of additional development and consequently the improvement of our original material, Aurigan. We have built on the success and positive features of Aurigan, specifically the taste and salivation aspects to give an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. It is the distinctive composition of copper, manganese and zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special. With a reduced copper content the oxidation process is still maintained, however, the extraordinary combination with manganese is what makes the difference. This combination results in a smoother and more regulated process of oxidation. Tests show a very positive influence on the horse’s satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform. The copper discharge quantity into the horse’s saliva is reduced considerably, which helps to keep the noble white- gold colour for a longer time. The new ingredient manganese on the other hand is an important micronutrient. As a crucial component and activator of enzymes, manganese is highly relevant for building up connective tissue as well as for the muscle and energy metabolism. It can therefore be helpful in preventing muscle tension and in supporting stress reduction. Beyond that, manganese is needed for the reduction of histamine and can prevent allergic skin reactions. Also, the feed industry discovered manganese to be a promising food additive that is gaining in importance in modern feeding of sport horses.

Optimal effects – unmatched look SENSOGAN® 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. It is easy to care for and maintains its elegant appearance over a long time period. All SENSOGAN® bits are marked with a black ring at the cheeks.  

sprenger aurigan

Bits and Weymouth bits made of the patented material AURIGAN produce this distinctive and pleasant taste that horses love. This particular taste encourages horses to chew and produce saliva which promotes the rapid acceptance of the AURIGAN Sprenger bits - the best connection for a successful horse and rider team.

AURIGAN is not just a colour, but a taste that horses love.
AURIGAN provides a specific smell which can even be realized by the human nose. Horses love this special smell and taste and therefore accept the bit rapidly. Vendors of "down market products" have tried to copy AURIGAN for a long time. These copies seem to offer the same advantages like original AURIGAN as they also have the same shiny golden colour. However, in addition to copper there are other materials like aluminium added which inhibit the oxidation and therefore cannot attain the same beneficial effect. It is also claimed that one of the other materials is warming up faster in the horse’s mouth therefore giving a pleasurable feeling when accepting the bit — a statement that was confounded by tests. AURIGAN warms up extremely quickly in the horse’s mouth — faster than any other material used in equestrian sports. As a consequence AURIGAN also conveys a pleasant feeling for the horse in this aspect.

The evolution of AURIGAN

It is known that copper encourages the production of saliva and therefore the chewing activity due to its oxidation in the horse’s mouth. The only problem is that pure copper is too soft to be used as a bitting material. Since time immemorial the copper alloy German Silver has been used for the manufacturing of bits. SPRENGER produced German Silver bits since its company founding in the year 1872. We made it our business to develop an alloy that expresses the advantages of copper even more and features an extremely high breaking strength. So SPRENGER bits  evolved AURIGAN in collaboration with the Veterinary University of Hanover which exceeds the quality of the established German Silver by far. Furthermore, long-term studies have proven that AURIGAN and its oxidation are really appreciated by horses.
