Neue Schule Turtle Tactio Snaffle

Neue Schule


Turtle Tactio centralises pressure to the centre of the tongue which we find gives more chin in action to the horse. Suitable for jaw bars and horses who can withstand tongue pressure. 


So what is the difference between the Turtle Top and the Turtle Tactio?

The Turtle Top offers a very even weight-bearing surface across the whole of the mouth, whereas the Turtle Tactio utilises the centre of the tongue in order to alleviate bar pressure.  This is comfortable for the horse as the centre of the tongue is depressed down onto the floor of the mouth whereas the outer edges of the tongue are not pushed down onto the angular, bony bars that are not well cushioned and therefore are much more prone to damage.
