Fager Martin is recommended if you would describe your horse as the following;
Fager Martin is a double-jointed Sweet Iron bit featuring a Front Lock system.
Martin offers outstanding stability and comfort. When the horse is working, the Front lock is there to assist, whatever the positioning of the head. From a low position (stretching out) or higher (over a jump), the closure continues to work even if the reins pull the bit upwards; making the bit turn downwards – this is where a regular lockup system would fail. It also makes it considerably more forgiving against any unexpected movements of your hands.
Martin is also a great solution for youngsters as it lies still inside the mouth without taking up too much space.
If you are searching for a gentle, kind bit for a sensitive horse, we would definitely recommend trying Fager Martin.
Martin is also an ideal bit to alternative regularly with other bits to vary the pressure points ensuring a more consistent, focused communication.
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.
