Fager Sally is a good choice if you would describe your horse as the following;
Fager Sally is a lightweight double-jointed bit with no locking mechanism, constructed in the extremely durable metal Titanium.
Sally is the perfect solution for horses that feel stiff and heavy in the contact, whilst at the same time express sensitivity to harsh hands. Fager Sally’s design relieves the constant pressure from the tongue and in combination with the lighter weight, creates a surprisingly different pressure as and when it is required.
The anatomical shape of the mouthpiece follows the natural contours of the mouth, dispersing the pressure evenly between the bars and tongue. This specific design has proven extremely comfortable, particularly for those horses with a large, fleshy tongue.
The short centrepiece eliminates any palate interference as it’s breakover is positioned towards the outside of the tongue. Sally even suits horses with conformation of a low and/or short palate with a large tongue, which can be particularly difficult to find suitable bits for.
This sidepiece is designed to keep the mouthpiece steady and give a framed feeling.
Baucher is to prefer if you have problems with wounds in the corners of the mouth or wears on the premolars (P2). The Baucher will reveal these places from constant pressure and help the horse to relax.
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
This design is the ideal solution for sensitive horses who easily develop sores and cuts as it protects the bars and the flesh of the mouth.
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.
