Fager Julia Bit – Loose Ring, Fixed Ring & Wings


A bit many have been waiting for, hello Julia!

Julia’s innovative, anatomically shaped double jointed mouthpiece creates space for the tongue and therefore relieve it from pressure. Instead the bar pressure increased.

Together with the taste of sweet iron and copper this bit are easily accepted even by very picky and sensitive horses.

The Centre piece Buster Roller is sharper than other flat surface links because it is smaller but higher. It also gives the horse something to play with.

Highly effective on horses that tend to lean on the bit.

When pressure is applied to a horse with a sensitive tongue the signs may vary. Here are some of the most common response:

  • Try to put the tongue over the bit.
  • Shaking its head.
  • Making sudden fast head-movements to escape the connection from the reins.
  • Pull head up or down, trying to escape the pressure.
  • Sticking the tongue out/Chewing the bit frantically.

Some horses prefers Dee Rings before regular loose rings or Eggbut since it give a more solid feel against the side of the horse’s face.

D-Rings prevents the bit to be pulled through the mouth.

They also gives the rider more leverage with making turns.

Compare to Loose Rings the Dee Rings gives a slightly slower release and poll pressure.

Some riders feel their horse is a bit too heavy and that they get slower reactions on D-Rings, in which case we recommend trying Julia with Wings instead.

The wings are a good way to avoid pinching of your horse lips and prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth.

  • The Centre piece Buster Roller is highly effective on horses that wants to lean on the bit and take control.
  • More tongue pressure than bar pressure are applied when you ride with contact. The Buster Roller create point pressure on the tongue to stop the horse if trying to take over the bit. When relaxed the point pressure releases.
  • Sweet iron (blue alloy) is more often accepted by the horse than bits without sweet iron.
