Fager Emil is the ideal choice if you would describe your horse as the following;
Emil is a durable and lightweight, double-jointed Titanium Snaffle. The design is simple, unique and designed with the horse’s ultimate comfort in mind. The whole of the bit surface, including the joints is 100% smooth allowing complete fluidity and freedom in the mouth.
The joints are specifically designed to never interfere or push against the palate, making Emil an extremely comfortable bit. The mouthpiece naturally conforms to the shape of the tongue whilst relieving the bars from constant pressure. Emil is the perfect solution for sensitive horses who easily cut or bruise in the mouth.
The lightweight, straight design helps to promote more precise and direct communication down the reins.
This sidepiece is designed to keep the mouthpiece steady and give a framed feeling.
Baucher is to prefer if you have problems with wounds in the corners of the mouth or wears on the premolars (P2). The Baucher will reveal these places from constant pressure and help the horse to relax.
At Fager we design our bits to always sit horizontally straight, there is never a bigger bend forward. The reasoning behind this is to ensure that the bit maintains the correct balance point (BP) in the mouth, creating stability and clear communication for the horse. When a bit creates a bigger bend forward, it also moves the BP forward, detrimentally reducing the effectiveness of the aids
This design is the ideal solution for sensitive horses who easily develop sores and cuts as it protects the bars and the flesh of the mouth.
IMPORTANT: The balance point will remain, even if it has a slight bend over the tongue; upwards.
Fager’s designs are always straight horizontally = Never has a bigger bend forward.
NOTE: The balance point will still be kept even if it has a slight bend over the tongue = Upwards.
