Fager Niklas is suitable if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Throws their head, chews on the bit.
- Unsteady in the connection.
- Feels stiff in any standard straight bit.
- Doesn’t instinctively seek out the contact.
Fager Niklas is a stable barrelled sweet tasting bit with bar relief.
The barrelled tube mouthpiece creates a fast, natural lock in any direction making Niklas an ideal solution to use with horses who need encouragement to actively seek more contact, and get a stable feeling without getting stiff like on a straight bit.
The Niklas design is well suited to horses who have wear on the teeth and need a bit that protects the teeth. It’s also very gentle to the bars.
Niklas is designed to give extra stability in the mouth for more direct, effective communication making it less confusing for horses who don’t instinctively respond to the aids. It works to keep the correct balance point (BP) in the mouth. Bit designs which create a bigger bend forward, also move the BP forward therefore reducing the effectiveness of the aids.
Niklas is the ideal model to combine with your other bits, alternating regularly to vary the pressure points and keep communication direct and focused.
