CARL - Fager's Titanium Bar Relief Eggbutt Bit
Carl is a durable and lightweight double jointed titanium bit.
Titanium is a material that helps provide steady, reassuring communication to your horse through the reins.
Carl is designed with the sensitive horse in mind.
If you would describe your horse as something with the following;
- Heavy in your hands.
- Strong, usually lean/pull on the bit
- Sensitive for pressure from the bit.
- Won't accept the bit or just for short times. Usually drops/chew on the bit and feel uncomfortable.
-Then I need to say, try Carl!
Carl has an anatomic shape that follows the shape of the mouth.
Allows for tongue relief, wish many horses prefer.
The shape of the mouthpiece combined with the short and flat centerpiece eliminates palate interference. It breaks to the outside of the tongue, it also softens excessive pressure to the center of the tongue and presents a more consistent feel across the mouth.
Carl even suits horses with a low palate together with a big tongue.
These horses are harder to find a suitable bit for.
At Fager, we know it is the smallest details that will make the big change in how your horse will just accept or love the bit you choose.
Every horse prefers different and we at Fager are very good at finding the solution.
Carl is designed with Bar-relief.
Together with Fager's, equestrians and customers experience, we know many horses have sensitive pressure points and will try to escape the pressure from your hands to avoid it.
It can show by the horse trying to steal the bit from your hands and in some cases, tucking his head in and drops the bit. The horse is uncomfortable, and you won't be able to develop your training.
When you achieve the fantastic feeling of connection with your horse, and you receive a correct link to the reins, Carl will have a gentle and perfect position in the mouth.
If the horse leans/pull on the bit, the Bar-relief will bend and achieve more point pressure on the bars.
Making him seek a more honest connection again.
The blue color will not rust!
Loose ring or Eggbutt?
Eggbutts give the mouthpiece stability, and the rein aids will be more direct and precise. If your horse is a little hesitant into the contact, an eggbutt is preferred. Loose rings will allow for more movement of the bit in the horse's mouth. Which also will discourage leaning. Loose rings will allow the rider for quick aids with finesse. Eggbutts or loose rings together with bit guards is to recommend if the horse has ”fleshy" lips/mouth corners.
Carl's mouthpiece is made in solid titanium.
Titanium has several advantages:
- Antibacterial and Biocompatible material.
- Superior strength and extremely lightweight in the mouth.
- Increases saliva, warm to the touch and encourages acceptance.
- Non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
- Low maintenance, easy to clean.
