Alexander the Great. A double jointed sweet iron bit.
Alexanders anatomically shaped mouthpiece 45° twisted french link was laying in the same direction as the tongue. Together with the taste of sweet iron, this bit is readily accepted even by very picky and sensitive horses.
This middle piece works well on a horse who uses his tongue to push against the bit and therefore taking control.
When taking the reins, it will give both bar and tongue pressure making the horse come back with a lighter feeling in your hands.
Our loose rings allow for immediate release and relief from bar and tongue pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth.
Fager's loose rings with wings have a new and unique feature called TOL™
This Turn Over Lock system prevents the ring to overbend and hit the molars while working your horse. This fantastic feature protects the teeth and makes anxious and tense horses more relaxed.

Some riders think their horse is a bit too heavy and get slower reactions on Dee rings; then I would recommend trying loose rings with Wings instead.
The wings are an excellent way to avoid pinching of your horse lips and prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth.
This is our points of experience after developing and let equestrians try this product:
- Alexanders mouthpiece doesn’t take up much space and is easy for horses to accept.
- Both bar and tongue pressure are applied when you ride with contact.
- TOL™ prevents the loose rings to turn over and push on the horse's molars.
- Sweet iron (blue alloy) is more often accepted by the horse than bits without sweet iron.
- The 45-degree french link centerpiece follows the contour of the horse's tongue and is suitable for horses that use its tongue to push against the bit to take control.
