Fager Anna is a good choice if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Finds difficulty in seeking connection towards the bit.
- Falls constantly behind the bit.
- Sticks the tongue out/chew frantically at the bit.
Fager Anna is a single-jointed bit incorporating Fager’s Smart System FSS™, an innovative design which creates a unique three-way locking system to prevent the bit from overbending which can cause discomfort and pain.
The key difference between regular lockups and FSS™ is more significant than you might initially think as the FSS™ continues to work through all head positioning.:
When working in a low position (e.g. stretching out) or a higher position (e.g. 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 would fail. Therefore our FSS™ is considerably more forgiving against any unexpected movements of your hands.
Fager Anna is also a great solution for youngsters as it lies still inside the mouth and doesn’t take up too much space.
Loose Baucher is a registered design by Fager. This sidepiece is designed to keep the mouthpiece steady, without the loose ring interfering with the mouth piece’s placement.
Loose Baucher is to prefer if you have problems with wounds in the corners of the mouth or wears on the premolars (P2). The Loose Baucher will reveal these places from constant pressure and help the horse to relax.
If you have a sensitive horse and are searching for a gentle, kind bit, Anna is definitely worth a try. It is also perfect to alternate with other bits to improve communication work by alternating the pressure points.
