Neue Schule Named Official Bit of the USEF

August 17, 2015–The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is pleased to announce that Neue Schule is now “The Official Bit of the USEF.” Neue Schule’s innovative, quality bits are the choice of many of the top riders in the world.

“We could not think of a better partner, and look forward to Neue Schule’s continued support of the USEF,” says the USEF CEO Chris Welton. “Because of Neue Schule’s attention to research, design, and craftsmanship in the construction of its products, we are pleased to welcome Neue Schule as the Official Bit of the USEF.”

Neue Schule is the top choice of professionals and amateurs in and out of the show ring. An ensemble of Neue Schule Ambassadors, including Steffen Peters, Todd Minikus, Kim Severson, Buck Davidson, and Laura Graves, count on Neue Schule bits to help them form the best possible partnership with their horses. As part of Neue Schule’s commitment to the bits’ users and the USEF, the company will partner with the USEF to sponsor the Neue Schule/USEF Junior Jumper Championships at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show on October 8-11.

Mette Larsen, president and founder of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery, the U.S. and Canadian distributor of Neue Schule Bits, feels that the partnership between Neue Schule and the USEF is a logical one.

“I have always thought we were a perfect bit for the USEF, because we have created a ‘bitting revolution,'” Larsen explains. “At Neue Schule, we take into account the needs and welfare of the horse. We carefully examine design, comfort, and quality before any bit can leave the factory. Our designs are a perfect fit for young horses in development right up through the international caliber athletes.”

Neue Schule offers a range of high performance, superior comfort bits incorporating a unique copper alloy that promotes acceptance and communication. The company’s advanced designs offer a variety of quality bits for equestrian disciplines. For more information about Neue Schule bits, visit
