FEI has approved Sprenger WH??? is it true???
I have been hearing that the FEI has approved the Springer WH bits. Has anybody else heard this? I'm just curious because my goal is to keep Cin in approved bits so there is no worry when I do go to show him. Many people said he needs a roller bit however to get him to relax more in the mouth as he has some bit anxiety still and he is VERY VERY VERY green. The Springer WH DOES have a small roller so I was sure it isn't approved, but now I'm hearing it is. If it is, I am going to put him in that instead of the KK I was going to get him. All I can find online are old FEI rules, I can't find anything that states this bit is approved.
This is the bit I'm talking about
Dover Saddlery | Herm Sprenger WH Ultra Loose Ring Snaffle Bit . if read the description... Dover is really good to keep such things up to date.
I thought about getting a roller bit, they are really good for a horse that fiddles and aids salivation. I eventually bought a french link loose ring snaffle made from sweet iron which oxidises and tastes nice. It really helps salivation too. I know this bit is dressage approved (in the UK).
Unless you are riding in an FEI sanctioned competition, IE a CDI, it does not matter if the FEI has approved the bit. I am assuming you will not be showing the horse in any CDIs, so you will need to check with your NF to see if it is legal. In Canada and the US, they are legal as of 2010 rules.
