Fager Alexander is a good choice for horses who you would describe as the following:

  • Unhappy in the bit you currently use.
  • Reluctant to soften down into the bit.
  • Requires encouragement to seek out the contact without any stiffness.

Alexander’s anatomically shaped mouthpiece features a 45° twisted French Link, designed to follow the natural contours of the tongue. When combined with the palatable taste of Sweet Iron this bit is well accepted, including ‘hard to please’ picky, sensitive horses.

This center piece works well on a horse who pushes their tongue against the bit in an attempt to evade the contact and take control.

When taking up the reins, Alexander creates both bar and tongue pressure, encouraging the horse to respond whilst creating a lighter feeling in the hand.

Alexander is a sensible choice for starting young horses.

A good option for starting young horses.
