Sprenger KK-CONRAD D-RING SNAFFLE,  – Stainless Steel Rings

  • KK-ULTRA Bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitivity of the tongue.
  • Adapted to the anatomy of the horse’s mouth.
  • No pressure put on the palate.
  • Clear instructions given as the tongue’s sense of touch is utilised.
  • Made from SENSOGAN the approved metal for horses

KK bits- the prototype of today’s double jointed bits have been used successfully for more than 30 years. The bit curves around the tongue without pinching the sensitive palate. The KK Ultra bits with their unique forward rotated 45 degree mouthpiece have been developed from these bits.

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. The bit will stay true to its white gold colour for much longer and can also be polished to a high shine at any point in its lifetime. The new SENSOGAN® range is identified by its unique stamped black ring on the cheeks of the mouthpieces.

The special challenge in developing SENSOGAN® was to maintain the positive features of Aurigan yet to intensify them, giving an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. In the twenty or so years that Aurigan has been available, many companies have copied its colour but never its properties. Sprenger knew the time was right to launch their new optimal bitting collection with an unmatched look anywhere else in the market.

It is the distinctive composition of Copper, Manganese and Zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special. The reduced copper content combined with the manganese results in a more regulated process of oxidation. Tests with the veterinary college of Hannover and the German Riding School in Warendorf  showed without doubt this combination of metals has a positive influence on the horses satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform.

Manganese is known to assist with building up connective tissue as well as for muscle and energy metabolism, it is also known to reduce histamine and can help prevent skin reactions. The feed industry has recently recognised manganese as an important feed additive for competition horses.

Important Information

Make sure the bit is fitted correctly in the mouth. The arrow must always be on the left hand side pointing forwards.
