From an entirely own and innovative view on what a horse and rider need, TRUST Equestrian develops and optimizes products for the equestrian sports. The current TRUST collection includes many dozens of Sweet Iron, Inno Sense and leather bits.
For years, the TRUST Equestrian team has worked together with (top) competition riders from every discipline. This ensures TRUST Equestrian to be up-to-date of the developments in the market and possible problems riders encounter when it comes to horse tack. TRUST Equestrian is always seeking for products to refine sports performances. Behind the scenes you will find a continuous effort by a professional team or riders that work on new products.
The TRUST Bits collection counts 1.500 different bits. The bits are produced in three materials: Sweet Iron, Flexi and leather. The production takes place in the Netherlands. TRUST is truly ‘made in Holland’. Curious how we produce these bits? Have a look behind the scenes.
Sweet iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity; the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which in turn encourages better acceptance of the bit. The rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue colour of the TRUST-bit to a brownish-grey.
If a sweet iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may develop on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.
The Inno Sense bits come in three different models: soft, medium & hard. The mouthpieces are available in the versions; flexi, mullen and port. Bits from the Inno Sense line can be used for every horse and particularly suitable for young horses and/or horses with a sensitive mouth. The synthetic material is FDA approved, which means the material does not contain plasticizers and is non-toxic to people and animals. In addition, the flexi- and mullen model of the Inno Sense Bits line are solid because of the application of a core of stainless steel. Horses that are ridden with an Inno Sense Bit follow the hand easily and accept the bit smoothly.
The core of the bit is made of reinforced nylon. The leather that is stitched around this core, is naturally tanned without chemicals. The saliva production softens the leather bit and makes it more pleasant for the horse.
The flexible mechanism in combination with the taste of the leather, makes the bit particularly suitable for horses with a sensitive mouth.
