Developed by Lisa Wilcox and Ernst Hoyos together with Sprenger is a double jointed bit that features a unique roller which provides a gentle stimulation to the tongue which encourages the horse to chew prompting salivation allowing the acceptance of the bit therefore the relaxation of the jaw. Lisa states “It has been Ernst and my experience that through this gentle stimulation our horses learn more quickly to accept the bit softening their entire top-line enabling us to perform the movements with more relaxation and ultimately more harmony.”
The WH Ultra is highly recommended for horses that are unresponsive to the rein aids. The tongue is gently stimulated to utilise its highly sensitive sense of touch in an incomparable way. The horse gets relaxed and stays focused on the tongue, preventing it from being easily distracted and so more responsive to the rein aids of the rider.
