Product Details

If you would describe your horse as something with the following;

  • Pulling on the bit, but overreact on too much pressure.
  • Unsteady in the contact.
  • Horse putting their head down/throwing their head up.
  • Refusal to soften down onto the bit.
  • Doesn't seek the contact.

Marcus has it all. 100% super smooth surface even around the joints. A very comfortable bit to wear.

Marcus's joints will never push against the sides of the palate or put uneven pressure over the bars. A very comfortable bit that shapes naturally around the tongue and reveals the bars from constant pressure.

The material Sweet iron will slowly oxidize and rusts. The oxidation has a sweet taste that horses like and which encourages salivation. We recommend sweet iron if you want more contact in the hand, the taste will make the horse seek the contact more.

Fager's designs are always straight horizontally = Never has a bigger bend forward.

We design them that way to keep the balance point (BP) in the mouth. If you have a bigger bend forward, you will also move the BP forward and slowing down the process of your aids.

It has also been shown to protect the bars and flesh from burn marks and wounds on the most sensitive horse.

NOTE: The balance point will still be kept even if it has a slight bend over the tongue = Upwards.

TIPS & INFORMATION

  • Sweet iron is meant to rust. Most horses love the taste it gives.
  • When you receive your bit it has protection oil to prevent it from start rusting before being used. It might make the bit look a bit filthy as first sight. The oil can be either cleaned with a simple towel/paper before start using it or not. The oil is harmless for the horse.
  • If you want to delay the rusting process, wipe the bit dry after every use.
  • Do you think your bit is too rusty after a long time use? Put the sweet iron in Coca Cola and the rust will go away. It is the phosphorus in Coca Cola that makes the rust dissolve. Please be careful using any other strong chemicals with phosphorus in it! Coca Cola works fine, we promise.
    Note that the blue color of the sweet iron will go away or fade along with the rust when you choose to do this.
