NOTE: Greta can be used in two ways: Either with tongue relief or with bar relief.
For tongue relief – If you would describe your horse as the following:
For bar relief- Turn the bit upside down.
If you would describe your horse as the following:
Greta is a durable and lightweight, single-jointed Titanium Snaffle. The design is simple, unique and designed with the horse’s ultimate comfort in mind. The whole of the bit surface, including the joints is 100% smooth allowing complete fluidity and freedom in the mouth.
Greya is an ideal design for sensitive mouthed horses whose mouths easily develop cuts, sores or rubs.
The lightweight, straight design helps to promote more precise and direct communication down the reins.
At Fager we design our bits to always sit horizontally straight, there is never a bigger bend forward. The reasoning behind this is to ensure that the bit maintains the correct balance point (BP) in the mouth, creating stability and clear communication for the horse. When a bit creates a bigger bend forward, it also moves the BP forward, detrimentally reducing the effectiveness of the aids
IMPORTANT: The balance point will remain, even if it has a slight bend over the tongue; upwards.
Fager’s designs are always straight horizontally = Never has a bigger bend forward.
NOTE: The balance point will still be kept even if it has a slight bend over the tongue = Upwards.
