Aurigan is used to encourage increased salivation in your horse’s mouth. The alloy is made from 85% copper, 4% silicon, and 11% zinc. The alloy was developed and patented by Sprenger equine sports, with the intention to encourage the motivation and satisfaction of your horse through smell and taste.

The novel alloy appears similar to other copper alloys, but has different oxidation properties, which is supposed to contribute to the improved experience with your horse.

Many copper alloys include nickel; the lack of nickel in the Aurigan alloy is of particular benefit to horses with a nickel allergy.
