Fager Mary is recommended if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Displays discomfort with almost every bit previously tried.
- Feels rigid to the contact on one or both sides.
- Tosses their head up and down.
- Resistant to acceptance onto the bit.
Fager Mary has everything you could want from a bit! It is an incredibly comfortable bit featuring 100% super smooth surfaces, including the joints.
Mary’s joints are designed to never press against the sides of the palate or create uneven pressure over the bars. It is an extremely comfortable bit which contours naturally around the tongue, relieving the bars from constant pressure.
Mary is constructed using Fager’s NEW Anoblast™ manufacturing technique which produces a high quality, extremely durable bit; the highest quality Titanium bit on the market today! The grey colour is a natural consequence of the production process, no additional colouring is used.
Fager mouthpiece designs are always horizontally straight – none have a big bend forward. We design them in this way to maintain the correct balance point (BP) in the mouth. When a bit creates a bigger bend forwards the BP is also moved forward, which ultimately reduces the effectiveness of the aids.
This unique design also promotes protection of the bars and the fleshy parts of the mouth from rubs and sores, even in the most sensitive horses.
N.B. The balance point remains even if it has a slight bend over the tongue = Upwards.
When used in combination with Fager’s Titanium Weymouth, this lightweight set weighs just 400 g (approx) which is less than a regular double bridle!
We recommend having the weymouth in the same size as your snaffle, the bradoon can be ½ -1cm bigger.
Note; Mary has the same mouthpiece as Maria. Maria is the snaffle version = normal snaffle rings. Mary is the bradoon version = smaller rings.
