Fager Claudia is suitable if you would describe your horse as the following;
Claudia is designed with the sensitive horse in mind. Claudia offers that extra bit of everything, just when you need it! When combined with the palatable taste of Sweet Iron this bit is well accepted, including ‘hard to please’ picky, sensitive horses.
The mouthpiece follows the natural shape/contour of the mouth, featuring a short centerpiece which lies flat against the tongue, eliminating any palate interference. It’s breakover is towards the outside of the tongue, softening excessive pressure to the center of the tongue whilst promoting a more consistent feel across the mouth.
Using Claudia for a horse with a sensitive tongue you will discover that they become more willing to accept the contact and start to enjoy their work, the sweet taste will encourage the horse to seek contact with the bit without getting stiff and stuck in the hand.
Claudia even suits horses whose mouth conformation has a low palate combined with a big tongue; this combination being extremely difficult to find suitable bits for.
Loose Baucher is a registered design by Fager. This sidepiece is designed to keep the mouthpiece steady, without the loose ring interfering with the mouth piece’s placement.
Loose Baucher is to prefer if you have problems with wounds in the corners of the mouth or wears on the premolars (P2). The Loose Baucher will reveal these places from constant pressure and help the horse to relax.
