Fager Julia is suitable if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Strong, pulls/leans on the bit but can also lose contact.
- Sensitive to the aids but still strong.
- Inconsistent in the contact.
- Have difficulty finding a bit in which this horse is happy.
Julia’s double-jointed mouthpiece creates space for the tongue, relieving constant pressure.
The Roller is positioned further down than the joints to increase the point-pressure on the tongue. Creating pressure when your horse pulls or feels heavy in your hand without creating consistent pressure.
The roller also allows horses something to play with, perfect for horses who can feel numb to the contact.
The combination of sweet iron and copper creates a taste in the mouth which is accepted even by the most sensitive or picky horses. It effectively works to increase acceptance and a steady contact.
The Kimblehook can be described as a fixed ring with the possibility to add leverage when you need it. The further down you place your rein; the more pressure will be added and divided between chin, poll, and mouth.
The stable feeling Kimblehook creates can be good for fuzzy and worried horses that get strong, unbalanced, and hard to turn.
The Kimblehook puts the pressure further down in the mouth which can help a horse that gets too high in the neck.
Kimblehooks are always used together with a chain or strap behind the chin.
