Herm Sprenger’s most innovative Weymouth bit, this Bemelmans Sensogan® Weymouth Short Shank Bit has a 16mm mouth and 11cm stainless steel shanks with 5cm lower shanks. The bit is designed to help keep the horse on the bit. The exceptional shape of the Bemelmans mouthpiece distributes even pressure across the entire tongue, virtually eliminating the horse’s ability to put the tongue over the bit. The mouthpiece shape accommodates the sensitive arch of the horse’s mouth, and its thickness is tapered toward the center for soft but effective communication.

It features Sensogan mouthpiece metal, developed by the experts at Herm Sprenger. Sensogan promotes a delicate and sensitive connection to the horse, 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 much longer.

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.
