Fager Madeleine Single Joint is perfect for a horse that could be described as the following:
- Prone to developing cuts or sores
- Feels rigid in the contact on one or both sides
- Needs more flexibility than a standard straight bit
The Madeleine is designed as an extremely lightweight jointed Titanium Bradoon and Snaffle. The entire bit, including the joint, is 100% smooth, thus allowing total fluidity and freedom in the mouth.
It is designed to never interfere or push against the palate which creates a very comfortable riding experience for the horse. It conforms to the natural curvature of the tongue, thus relieving the bars from constant pressure. It is the perfect solution for sensitive horses who are prone to cuts or bruising in the mouth.
The straight and lightweight design helps promote more direct and precise communication.
Combined with Fager's Titanium Weymouth, the set weighs as little as 400g, less than a regular double bridle setup!
Featuring Fager's own Anoblast technique, the bit is a light grey color as a result of the production process; no coloring added. This makes for the highest quality titanium bit on the market!
Fager mouthpieces are always designed horizontally straight: none of them have a big forward bend. This is to maintain the correct balance point in the mouth. A bit with a bigger forward bend moves the balance point forward, ultimately reducing the effectiveness of the aids.
It is recommended to have the Bridoon the same size as your snaffle, and the Weymouth can be .5-1cm larger.
