• Loose rings independent of cheeks, as designed by Franz Maringer, hence the name 'FM' Bit. • The FM is also know as a Fulmer Bit and is the bit of choice for those following the teachings of Phillippe Karl. • It is an excellent bit for mouthing and starting young horses. • This bit has the 'play' of a loose ring bit, with the additional support of the full cheeks. • This is an excellent bit when used with FM Keepers (sold separately). • FM Keepers are not required to be used under competition rules, however they can help the stability of the mouthpiece and they are recommended for young children on ponies.
• Stainless Steel. STC Stainless Steel is produced with a blend of 18% chrome and 8% nickel. The chrome prevents rusting and the nickel adds strength and durability. STC Stainless Steel is super strong and double hand polished.
