Fager Martin is recommended if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Doesn’t instinctively seek out the contact.
- Constantly drops behind the bit.
- Sticks their tongue out.
- Frantically chew on the bit.
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.
Sweet iron: The Sweet iron alloy oxidizes on contact with the humidity of the mouth and the air.
Oxidation brings a sweet taste which naturally stimulates the production of saliva. This corresponds to the effect of a sugar that is given to the horse at the start of the session but allows this sweet taste to be diffused throughout the work.
Consequently, this alloy allows good acceptance of the bit and helps the horse make contact with its mouthpiece.
Oxidation changes the appearance of the bit as the sessions progress.
