Sprenger Turnado bits represent a new generation of loose ring snaffles as the mouthpiece of the bit is turned forward by 45 degrees.
This special rotation is distinctly marked by a matt surface in the middle part of the mouthpiece.
Due to the innovatively adjusted mouthpiece the rein aids reach the horse’s mouth more accurately and precisely while doing so in a gentle way by evenly distributing pressure over the tongue.
Turnado bits enable correct communication with the horse as prompt and ideal chewing activity is promoted.
This bit can also help prevent tongue vices and counteracts the horse’s natural asymmetry.

More about Sensogan:
The new bit material developed by Sprenger is the result of additional development and consequent improvement of their original bit material – Aurigan.
It is the distinctive composition of copper, manganese and zinc that makes Sensogan so special.
With a reduced copper content the oxidation process is still maintained, however, the newly developed combination with manganese is what makes the difference.
This combination results in a smoother and more regulated process of oxidation. Tests show a very positive influence on the horse’s satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform.
The copper discharge quantity into the horse’s saliva is reduced considerably, which helps to preserve the bit’s white gold colour for a longer period of time.
