The Herm Sprenger WH Ultra Sensogan® Loose Ring Bit features the innovative Sensogan mouthpiece metal. As a result of ongoing research and development, experts at Herm Sprenger have created Sensogan for a mouthpiece that offers all the benefits of Aurigan®, yet retains its discreet and elegant silver color much longer. Like Aurigan, Sensogan promotes a delicate and sensitive connection to the horse. It instills a pleasant taste, encourages salivation and promotes bit acceptance. It also significantly regulates the oxidation process to allow the bit to maintain its beautiful color. Distinctively unique, this metal is a propriety blend of copper, zinc and manganese. A reduced copper content allows some oxidation to occur, but the addition of manganese regulates and slows oxidation which in turn slows discoloration. Manganese is also an important micronutrient for horses, as a crucial component and activator of enzymes. All Sensogan bits are marked with a black ring at the cheeks.
The Herm Sprenger WH Ultra Sensogan® Loose Ring Bit-16mm functions similarly to the KK Ultra bit, but features a smooth roller disk in the center. The slight up-and-down motion of the roller encourages the horse to play with it, which may be ideal for busy horses or those learning new skills. This bit is designed to lie perfectly in the mouth, resulting in soft and even pressure for maximum bit acceptance and optimal communication between horse and rider. This bit has an ergonomically formed curved 16mm mouthpiece and 70mm stainless steel rings.
