The Neue Schule Starter 7 cm Shank Weymouth is recommended as your horses introduction to the Weymouth (relaxed acceptance). In addition this starter Weymouth is extremely beneficial for the sensitive mouth as it is a mild ergonomically designed Weymouth. The gently sloping mouthpiece forms a wide low tongue bridge designed for maximum comfort across the tongue and gentle even weight distribution over the bars. The mouthpiece is a constant 16mm diameter circular over the bars and cleverly changing shape forming an oval profile over the tongue thereby occupying minimum volume between the tongue and upper palate. This Weymouth sits well back in the mouth over a thicker less sensitive part of the tongue. It is highly recommended as a starter Weymouth as it promotes relaxed acceptance encouraging the horse to lengthen the neck stretching into a soft consistent contact.
