Product Details

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

  • Hard to seek connection towards the bit
  • Falls constantly behind the bit
  • Sticking the tongue out/Chewing the bit frantically.

Martin, a double-jointed sweet iron bit with Fager's Fagers Smart System, FSS™.

A three-way lock system that prevents the bit from over-bending in any uncomfortable way.

The difference between regular lockups and FSS™ is more significant than you might think. While the horse is working, the FSS™ is there to help in any position your horse head is moving in. From low position (stretching out) or higher (over a jump), the closure works even if the reins will pull the bit upwards and making the bit turn downwards where regular lockup would fail. This way, it is more forgiving against the unexpected movements of your hands.

Martin is also great for youngsters - Lays still inside the mouth and doesn’t take up much space.

Are you looking for a kind bit and have a sensitive horse, this bit is worth trying. Perfect to have between other bits for communication work as well.

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.
