Sprenger Novocontact Single Jointed Pelham is ideal to use on horses that back off the contact and are too sensitive in the mouth to be ridden with stronger bits.

The revolutionary Sprenger Novocontact mouthpiece creates a unique oval shape in the mouth which widens the contact surface on the tongue aiding the rider to maintain regularity in the contact. As the rider applies the rein aid, the unique mouthpiece turns forward, narrowing the the surface area of the bit which comes into contact with the tongue, thus ensuring a more precise aid is delivered.

Combined with the pelham cheek, the Novocontact is ideal for strong horses that are aversive to excessive tongue and bar pressures as this revolutionary bit employs curb and poll pressure in conjunction.

The new Novocontact Sprenger range is made from Sensogan and is available in several different widths:

Sensogan – the new and improved version of Aurigan made from copper, zinc and manganese. Sensogan utilises the favourable taste and salivation levels provided by Aurgian but builds on these for improved feel and acceptance. Sensogan is a revolutionary new material designed for maximum comfort and relaxation. The main difference offered by Sensogan is due to the unique combination of copper and manganese which results in a smoother and far more regulated oxidative process which has proven very appealing to the horse in field tests; particularly if you have a horse who over-plays with the bit. This revolutionary compound has resulted in less copper discharge helping the bit retain its white-gold colouration for longer. The huge success of Sensogan is also due to its manganese content; this micro nutrient is extremely popular in the feeding regime of sports horses as tests have concluded that manganese aids in muscle and energy metabolism. Furthermore, feeding manganese has resulted in a reduction in tension in horses and we are finding that tense horses are far more relaxed in the mouth when ridden in Sensogan.
