UVEX VG1 Helmets
Delivery of the much anticipated Uvex VG1 helmets will take place in January 2016 for the beginning of the competitive 2016 season. All of the governing associations, BD, BS, BE, PC, BHS, BRS etc have announced that they are accepting the new VG1 standard from 1st January onwards, and that it complies with all their rulings.
Uvex have dedicated their resources to developing and exceeding the requirements of this new revised standard, to ensure as smooth a process as possible. Thomas Dautermann flew in to spend the week with BSI to oversee the rigorous testing processes required for the kitemark, and production has now commenced.
Uvex would like to thank all of their loyal retailers for their patience and understanding during the past 12 months and would like to reassure customers that this has been noticed and much appreciated.

Sprenger’s slimmer alternative
With many horses having less room in their mouths to accommodate thick bits, especially in double bridles, the need for streamline models was recognised by the leading bit manufacturer.
Committed to safety and comfort of the horse, Sprenger undertook intensive research to ensure that these new slimmer versions wouldn't break under pressure. Both bits are manufactured using Sprenger's unique Sensogan material to give a more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse.
- Novocontact. Its unique oval shape design widens the contact area of the mouthpiece on the horse's tongue, without putting pressure on the palate. Ideal for horses with sensitive mouths.
- HO Weymouth. Its slanting mouthpiece and a smooth, rounded port is angled forward to give even distribution of pressure on the tongue. Suitable for horses that dislike tongue pressure.
Novocontact bradoon from RRP £95 and, Ho Weymouth from RRP £265.
