For years Fritz Stahlecker has been working on the development of a new curb bit. Through his riding experience he had come to the conclusion that the traditional curb bit has sever disadvantages and his aim was to creat a bit that functions differently. After years of testing and measuring he has now created a bit that is friendly to the horse, no longer a painful but a sensitive mean of communication between horse and rider. Field studies have surpassed his expectations and reports of riders who tested the bit are convincing. We present you the main features of the bit in the overview HSH-Center-Curb-Bit (patent pending). If you want to help to get the FN licence and participate in testing the bit, you are most welcome. The bit is available under “Products and Prices“.

I recently received two of your curb bits and am very very excited by the results with the horses we have tried them on. One is a Lusitanio stallion that was badly ridden in a double while having very sharp teeth and his upper tush teeth are too high so they bump into the bits. He mouth is quieter and he can listen well in this bit, he is usually behind the leg but with this bit combination he is a changed horse, more forward and happy in his work. My 74 year old mother rides him and is enjoying his new found enthusiasm to go forward in your bit!
The other is a very forward very strong mare with a short neck who has a tough time staying up in a double. I usually show her Grand Prix in a snaffle bridle because of her neck length and carriage. I think your bit on her is most magical, she is more relaxed and can maintain an up frame in your curb.
I will submit photos to the USEF to see if it legal in the USA.
