If you would describe your horse as something with the following;

  • Hard to seek connection towards the bit
  • Falls constantly behind the bit
  • Chewing the bit frantically.
  • A younger horse.
  • Stiff on one or both sides.

Billy, a single-jointed sweet iron Fulmer Cheeks bit with Fager's Fagers Smart System, FSS™.

A three-way lock system that prevents the bit to overbend in any uncomfortable way.

The difference between regular lockups and FSS™ is more significant than you might think. While the horse is working the FSS™ is there to help in any position your horse head is moving in. From low position (stretching out) or higher (over a jump), the closure works even if the reins will pull the bit upwards and making the bit turn downwards where regular lockup would fail. In that way, it is more forgiving against the unexpected movements of your hands.

Billy is excellent for youngsters - Lays still inside the mouth and doesn’t take up much space.

The side pieces (Fulmer pins) of Billy are great horses that prefer a stable bit as possible.

The Fulmer pins also have the effect of guiding the horse's head which is great for schooling and training purposes.

The rings are loose which gives a fast reaction and still retaining the turning advantages of the full cheek.

Are you looking for a kind bit and have a sensitive horse, this bit is worth trying. Perfect to have between other bits for communication work as well.

HOW SHOULD I PLACE MY FAGER BIT IN THE HORSE MOUTH? 

The Horse-logo should always be on your horse right side, running forward. FAGER in front.

HOW DO I MEASURE THE SIZE OF THE BIT?

Loose rings it is important to measure from inside of the hole. When the bits are made, they are being measured where the hole is placed. Different sizes on the hole between brands.

Eggbutts are measured from the inside of the eggbutts side. 

Wings are measured on the inside of the wings.

WHAT MATERIAL SHOULD I PICK?

Fager works with different materials. The biggest difference between titanium and sweet iron is the lightness. Titanium will give you a quicker response and an "aha-effect" due to the constant pressure is less inside the mouth. A heavier bit with a taste of sweet iron is a good option if you wish for a more steady grip and acceptance. Step one is always fo find the right mouthpiece that is suitable for your horse.

SHOULD I CHOOSE LOOSE, WINGS, FIXED RINGS OR BABY FULMERS?

Fixed rings give the mouthpiece stability, and the rein aids will be more direct and precise. If your horse is hesitant into the contact, fixed rings are to prefer. Loose rings will allow for more movement of the bit in the horse's mouth. Which also will discourage leaning. Loose rings will allow the rider for quick aids with finesse. Fixed rings or loose rings together with bit guards are to recommend if the horse has ”fleshy" lips/mouth corners. Fager Wings have a unique feature called TOL™, 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.

Fager's patented Baby Fulmer cheeks are a blend between loose and fixed rings. They are curved to avoid pressure on the horse's face and will keep the mouthpiece stable and together with the loose rings attached, still give you a more mobile feeling. These are especially useful if your horse evades the rein aid by opening its mouth and/or tilt its head.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT MY HORSE WILL PREFER?

At Fager, we work with pressure points. To know what suits your horse, we ask certain questions that lead the way to a bit your horse feel it's best. If your horse is new to you, it can be difficult to know the right answers. You can always contact us if you are unsure about what to choose, we have the knowledge and love to share it. A truly suitable bit can absolutely improve your horse movements. It's so important to have the right equipment, among many other things of course.

HOW WILL THE MATERIAL LOOK AFTER BEING USED FOR SOME TIME?

SWEET IRON is meant to rust to give taste to the bit and hide the metal many horses can react negatively on. The more brown/grey the blue part on the Sweet iron turns, the more tasteful the bit will be. With Sweet iron, it is important to clean them dry after every use. Otherwise, it will be a layer of rust that can be uneven on the surface. If this happens, you can clean it with something that contains a low percentage of Phosphorus. For example Coca Cola. Please note, when you clean it with other water, the layer of sweet iron will go away as well. So do not overdo it.

TITANIUM Fager's surgical titanium doesn't have the metal taste and dont need any covering. It's simply tasteless. The blue color will never rust or fade, it's only for show. Bite marks will make the blue go away, but the titanium will still be smooth on the surface. Titanium is super strong and will last more than a lifetime.

CAN I TRY A FAGER BIT BEFORE I BUY IT?

As of today, we do not offer trials from our website directly. We do have stores and bit fitters that do. You can find our resellers here

HOW DO I KNOW MY HORSE BIT SIZE?

If you do not know what size you should buy for your horse, you need to measure a bit that fits. Or measure the mouth of your horse. To do this, we recommend using a whip. You put tape on the one side of the whip. Then you put it inside the mouth of your horse -with the tape just on the outside of the mouth corners, where the flesh ends. Then you put a tape on the other side (or mark by holding your fingers) Then you simply measure between these two spots of the whip. If you are between two sizes, choose the bigger one.

I was amazed at the difference the Carl bit made with my horse. I had been trying to resolve the issue I'd been having with him for months. Within one bit fitting session, I noticed an immediate difference.

I was so impressed, I purchased four additional bits this past week.
