SENSOGAN® - the new bit material developed by SPRENGER - is the result of additional development and consequently the improvement of our original material, Aurigan.
We have built on the success and positive features of Aurigan, specifically the taste and salivation aspects to give an even more delicate and sophisticated connection to the horse. It is the distinctive composition of copper, manganese and zinc that makes SENSOGAN® so special.
With a reduced copper content the oxidation process is still maintained, however, the extraordinary combination with manganese is what makes the difference. This combination results in a smoother and more regulated process of oxidation. Tests show a very positive influence on the horse's satisfaction, motivation and willingness to perform.
The copper discharge quantity into the horse's saliva is reduced considerably, which helps to keep the noble white-gold colour for a longer time. The new ingredient manganese on the other hand is an important micronutrient.
As a crucial component and activator of enzymes, manganese is highly relevant for building up connective tissue as well as for the muscle and energy metabolism. It can therefore be helpful in preventing muscle tension and in supporting stress reduction. Beyond that, manganese is needed for the reduction of histamine and can prevent allergic skin reactions. Also, the feed industry discovered manganese to be a promising food additive that is gaining in importance in modern feeding of sport horses.
SENSOGAN® not only has improved properties but also a completely new appearance. Compared to Aurigan, SENSOGAN® tarnishes less and is therefore easier to care for. The white-golden shine is retained longer. All SENSOGAN® bits are marked with a black ring on the side parts.
The advantages of Sensogan at a glance:
- high compatibility
- easy to clean
- targeted and dosed stimulation of salivation
- toxicologically tested
SPRENGER works continuously with a team of experts in the development and further development of products and materials. The special challenge in the development of SENSOGAN® consisted of reinforcing the positive properties of the proven material Aurigan. In cooperation with the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover and the German Riding School in Warendorf, the breakthrough was finally achieved with the unique alloy of SENSOGAN®.
The results of scientific tests confirm the positive effect of the material.
