This is Sabina Black, with Fager’s signature shanks in black edition!
Fager’s popular Sabina Icelandic bit, with sweet iron mouthpiece and black shanks, hooks, and chain.
Can it get any better than this?
”I was looking for a competition bit for me and my students that provides a precise connection to the horse. The bit should be soft in the mouth and comfortable to handle. I used to compete on a baby Pelham, but many of my students pointed out that the double reins can be complicated to ride with. Together with Fager bits, we were able to develop a bit with really short shanks that are used with single reins. I hope that this bit will help people to get the smooth ride they are looking for.”
The shape of the mouthpiece combined with its horizontal position eliminates the nutcracker action, reducing pinching, with no palate interference. It breaks to the outside of the tongue, it also softens excessive pressure to the center of the tongue and presents a more consistent feel across the mouth.
Side-ring tubes are shaped to prevent pinching the horse, and improving the rider’s signals. The chain can be detached on both sides and divides the pressure between poll, jaw, and mouth.
This bit reminds of a Baby Pelham, but give a more flexible feeling and you are allowed to compete with only one set of reins.
Excellent for riders that want a bit that provides a more clear signal than a snaffle.
