We have taken the lead in the creation of synthetic bits that combine several features: friendly for the horses, completely safe and bite resistant. The combination of these aspects has been a major challenge.
We spent a lot of time searching for the right materials - a synthetic blend that would meet biological and chemical standards and would be well received by horses. Unfortunately, none of the commercially available mixtures met our expectations, so we started working with a group of chemists to create our own - original and unique substance.
We spent a lot of time with the horses during the prototype process. We have tested many materials and configurations - from the various chemical compositions and hardness, the most ergonomic shape to the surface finish. Once again we have found out how sensitive to the slightest changes these animals are. After more than a year of work, at the end of 2016, we finally managed to create a material with the properties in place.
As a result of our long and tedious tests we have developed a bit that is characterized by very good permeability and the correct support of the horse during work. In collaboration with riders and their horses, we found Winderen's bit a great deal to improve the work of the animals and reduce bounce problems. The next advantage of the bits are resilient to the bite, chemical and biological purity and unique appearance.
All these aspects and positive opinions decided to start preparations for serial production. Innovative Winderen bits go to our store by the end of 2018. We continue to expand the group of riders and horses using the test product.
