PRODUCT INFO

A bit many have been waiting for, Hello Julia! 

Julia's anatomically shaped double jointed mouthpiece creates space for the tongue and therefore relieves it from pressure. Instead the bar pressure increases.

Together with the taste of sweet iron and copper this bit is easily accepted even by very picky and sensitive horses.

 The Centre piece Buster Roller is sharper than other flat surface links because it is smaller but higher in size. It also gives the horse something to play with.

Highly effective on horses that wants to lean on the bit. 

When pressure is applied to a horse with a sensitive tongue the signs may vary. Here are some of the most common responses: 

  • Trying to put the tongue over the bit.
  • Shaking its head.
  • Making sudden fast head-movements to escape the connection from the reins.
  • Pull head up or down, trying to escape the pressure.
  • Sticking the tongue out/Chewing the bit frantically. 

Our loose rings allow for immediate release and relief from bar and tongue pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth.

Fagers loose rings with wings have a new and unique feature called TOL™

This Turn Over Lock system prevents the ring to overbend and hit the molars while working your horse. This fantastic feature protects the teeth and makes anxious and tense horses more relaxed.

Some riders think their horse are a bit to heavy and get slower reactions on Dee rings, then I would recommend to try loose rings with Wings instead. 

The wings are a good way to avoid pinching of your horse lips and prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth.  

  • The Centre piece Buster Roller is highly effective on horses that wants to lean on the bit and take control.
  • More tongue pressure than bar pressure are applied when you ride with contact. The Buster Roller creates point pressure on the tongue to stop the horse trying to take over the bit. When relaxed the point pressure releases.
  • TOL™ prevents the loose rings to turn over and push on the horse's molars. 
  • Sweet iron (blue alloy) is more often accepted by the horse than bits without sweet iron

  • Sweet iron is meant to rust. Most horses love the taste it gives. The surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which in turn encourages better acceptance of the bit. The rusting oxidation changes the blue colour.
  • When you receive your bit it has protection oil to prevent it from rusting before being used. It might make the bit look a bit dirty as first sight. The oil can be either cleaned with a simple towel/paper before start using it or not. The oil is harmless for the horse. 
  • If you want to delay the rusting process, wipe the bit dry after every use. 
  • Is your bit rusty after a long time use? Put the sweet iron in Coca Cola and the rust will go away. 

Note that the blue colour of the sweet iron will go away or fade when you choose to do this as well with the rust.
