Fager Alexander is a good choice for horses who you would describe as the following:
Alexander’s anatomically shaped mouthpiece features a 45° twisted French Link, designed to follow the natural contours of the tongue. When combined with the palatable taste of Sweet Iron this bit is well accepted, including ‘hard to please’ picky, sensitive horses.
This center piece works well on a horse who pushes their tongue against the bit in an attempt to evade the contact and take control.
When taking up the reins, Alexander creates both bar and tongue pressure, encouraging the horse to respond whilst creating a lighter feeling in the hand.
A good option for horses that can get on and off in the contact.
A Beval bit has a similar effect to a 2½ & 3 Ring Snaffle, but has a softer effect and less leverage. Gives a flexible, soft feeling in the hand.This bit can be used with the reins in multiple positions depending on what effect you’d like from the bit.
It can also be used with a gag rein thanks to the special design with bent loop rings on the inside. The gag rein can slide smoothly in the loop rings.
