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 has that extra of everything a horse will appreciate, and we can´t wait to tell you about it!
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 we say, try Carl!
Carl has an anatomical shape that follows the shape of the Horse's mouth.
Allows for tongue relief, which 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 centre 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. Wish gives the rider zero connection to the mouth.
The horse is uncomfortable, and you won´t be able to develop your training.
With Fager´s bar relief we had made the mouthpiece where it lay towards the bars, wider. We kept the thickness thinner to promote a comfortable, close mouth for your horse while riding.
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 colour will not rust!
Loose rings or Eggbutts?
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 to prefer. 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.
The logo-HORSE should always be on your horse right side, upwards.
