Fager Marcus Sweet Iron Baby PelhamRegular price $160.00
Fager Marcus is the ideal choice If you would describe your horse as the following;
- Pulls on the bit, yet over-reactive to increased pressure on the reins.
- Develops cuts, sores, and rubs easily at the corners of the mouth.
- Can be strong, but still sensitive
- Needs stability
- Get high in the neck
Fager Marcus is a Double-Jointed bit with tongue relief. Our bits are designed to have a 100% smooth surface, including around the joints. The joints are designed and constructed to ensure they never push against the palate or sit on top of the bars. All these clever features result in an extremely comfortable bit which naturally fits the contours of the tongue.
The straight, slim design enhances the aids, creating more direct and precise communication than ever before.
The Baby Pelham sidepiece creates a frame feeling for horses who have a tendency to become unstable but still strong.
We recommend using the Baby pelham with a delta bridle or two reins, one in the large fixed ring and one in the small ring.
With two reins, you can easily regulate how much leverage you want from the bit by shortening, or lengthening, the rein that is attached to the bottom ring. With more leverage, you get a slightly lower neck and more effect, with less leverage you can get the horse a bit higher in the neck with less effect. If you use Fager’s adjustable delta, you have the same choice without having to use 2 reins.
This unique design acts as a curb version of a Baucher bit.
