Winderen Gel Bit System

We have recently brought in a selection of Winderen Bits and have been pleasantly surprised.  What initially seemed like another gimmicky tack item has been a great addition to our bit lineup for many of our fitting clients.  The Winderen System is a series of interchangeable mouth and cheek pieces, allowing an even greater level of customization.  The gel mouthpieces also come in 3 different levels of flexibility: Rigid, Flexi and Super Flexi.

Check out our full line of Winderen Gel Bits.

In our own research we have found them to be beneficial for horses that:

  • don’t trust the contact
  • have sharp and sensitive bars
  • don’t accept metal bits
  • curl behind the contact to get them to seek the contact forward.
  • if you need a variety of options this gel bit system has interchangeable cheek pieces.
  • if you need an Eggbutt for flat but need a little more leverage for jumping simply swap out the cheek pieces and you're all set.

Winderen recommends their bits for: 

  • Horses that have problems with getting on the bit and yielding to the hand
  • Sensitive horses that have difficulty accepting a metal mouthpiece
  • Horses that destroy synthetic bits by chewing on them
  • Horses allergic to metal bits

If your horse is struggling with its relationship with the bit, this may be the bit system for you.
