I was looking for a competition bit for me and my students that provides a precise connection to the horse. The bit should be soft in the mouth and comfortable to handle. I used to compete on a baby Pelham, but many of my students pointed out that the double reins can be complicated to ride with. Together with Fager bits, we were able to develop a bit with really short shanks that are used with single reins. We also decided on a titanium mouthpiece that my horses enjoy. The lightness of the titanium stops them from being heavy on the hand.
I hope that this bit will help people to get the smooth ride they are looking for' - Sabina
Fager's FSS system. Fagers Smart System is locking the joints in any direction that it could hurt the palate. Feeling more like a classic straight bit, but with some flex to it. This system gives more stability and helps ensure good freedom and calmness in the mouth of the horse, in this balanced and horse-friendly bit. Highly appreciated by sensitive horses.
Side-ring tubes are shaped to prevent pinching the horse, and improving the rider's signals. The chain can be detached on both sides and divides the pressure between poll, jaw, and mouth.
Titanium is very light and has a lower thermal capacity, which ensures better comfort for the horse, especially in cold weather. The lower weight helps the horse focus on the signals from the rider, instead of on the bit itself.
This bit reminds of a Baby Pelham, but give a more flexible feeling.
Excellent for riders that want a bit that provides a more clear signal than a snaffle, but not as severe as with longer shanks.
