Fager Martin is recommended if you would describe your horse as the following;
Fager Martin is a double-jointed Sweet Iron bit featuring a Front Lock system.
Martin offers outstanding stability and comfort. When the horse is working, the Front lock is there to assist, whatever the positioning of the head. From a low position (stretching out) or higher (over a jump), the closure continues to work even if the reins pull the bit upwards; making the bit turn downwards – this is where a regular lockup system would fail. It also makes it considerably more forgiving against any unexpected movements of your hands.
Martin is also a great solution for youngsters as it lies still inside the mouth without taking up too much space.
If you are searching for a gentle, kind bit for a sensitive horse, we would definitely recommend trying Fager Martin.
Martin is also an ideal bit to alternative regularly with other bits to vary the pressure points ensuring a more consistent, focused communication.
