Maria Titanium Fixed rings
A Registered Design
Fager Maria is recommended if you would describe your horse as the following;
- Displays discomfort with almost every bit previously tried.
- Feels rigid to the contact on one or both sides.
- Tosses their head up and down.
- Resistant to acceptance onto the bit.
Fager Maria has everything you could want from a bit! It is an incredibly comfortable bit featuring 100% super smooth surfaces, including the joints.
Maria’s joints are designed to never press against the sides of the palate or create uneven pressure over the bars. It is an extremely comfortable bit which contours naturally around the tongue, relieving the bars from constant pressure.
Maria is constructed using Fager’s NEW Anoblast™ manufacturing technique which produces a high quality, extremely durable bit; the highest quality Titanium bit on the market today! The grey colour is a natural consequence of the production process, no additional colouring is used.
Fager mouthpiece designs are always horizontally straight – none have a big bend forward. We design them in this way to maintain the correct balance point (BP) in the mouth. When a bit creates a bigger bend forwards the BP is also moved forward, which ultimately reduces the effectiveness of the aids.
This unique design also promotes protection of the bars and the fleshy parts of the mouth from rubs and sores, even in the most sensitive horses.
N.B. The balance point remains even if it has a slight bend over the tongue = Upwards.
Note; Maria has the same mouthpiece as Mary. Maria is the snaffle version = normal snaffle rings. Mary is the bradoon version = smaller rings.

Ordered this bit on Monday afternoon & was delivered to me in the UK by lunchtime the next day. Very impressed with this bit..my horse loves it & he is so much rounder & more comfortable in his schooling work, plus contact is a lot softer. Will definitely consider switching to fager for double bridle bits as well.
We’ve tried quite a lot of bits on my 5yo eventing mare. Shes sensitive, with a tiny head and mouth. She’s been unstable in the contact since we started riding her (a bit over a year), throwing her head up, her mouth all the time busy, with a lot of saliva. We have no bitfitters where we live, so it was challenging. I chose to ask help online and pay the money for a good bit without trying. I bought a Maria fixed rings and bit rings . The Maria looks quite thin. I tried it this morning and it was a difference of day and night! I felt like riding a grown up horse whom I can ask things (even collected our canter a bit!) instead of just turning around trying to get some stable contact. She’s been fine in cross and SJ, although not easy to steer. I’m happy with the investment and recommend the online advice ánd this bit.
