Saugerties, NY (February 24, 2017): HITS, Inc. is pleased to announce that Neue Schule USA with their innovative range of high performance and superior comfort horse bits, has signed on as the Official Bit of HITS Horse Shows.

Neue Schule USA will also sponsor the popular Bit ‘O Straw Hunter Classic, which will take place throughout the season at each HITS location from coast to coast and hundreds of other shows across the country. These classes, sponsored by Neue Schule USA, serve as a qualifying opportunity at more than 1300 member shows nationwide for the Bit O' Straw National Finals that are held at HITS-on-the-Hudson in Saugerties, New York, during the Marshall & Sterling Insurance League Finals.  

"This sponsorship provides Neue Schule USA a unique  opportunity to have a presence at all of the    Marshall & Sterling League Member Shows, where the riders in the popular Bit O' Straw Division look to earn a place at the Finals," said Chris Mayone, HITS Sponsorship Manager. "The entire HITS team looks forward to welcoming our new partner and helping them grow their wonderful product."

“We are excited to have Neue Schule USA on board this year,” said HITS President and CEO Tom Struzzieri. “HITS aims to provide the most exclusive, and top-caliber service to our clients, and we are enthusiastic about partnerships with companies that have that same goal in mind.”

Mette Larsen, Neue Schule USA President shares those sentiments adding, “Through this unique partnership we have a greater reach to riders, trainers and owners with our full range of high performance horse and pony bits including our new Hunter D line manufactured for the American market.”

The company’s extensive product lineup of bits are made from a patented metal alloy called Salox Gold® which has the highest thermal conductivity and zero bioavailability, eliminating distracting taste while promoting bit acceptance and comfort for the horse. The bit’s innovative designs are the result of the latest engineering and computer aided design (CAD) technologies, and are ergonomically engineered to fit the horse’s mouth for greater comfort and welfare.
