The key difference between regular lockups and FSS™ is more significant than you might initially think as the FSS™ continues to work through all head positioning.:
When working in a low position (e.g. stretching out) or a higher position (e.g. over a jump), the closure continues to work, even if the reins pull the bit upwards; making the bit turn downwards – this is where a regular lockup system would fail. Therefore our FSS™ is considerably more forgiving against any unexpected movements of your hands.
Billy is excellent for youngsters as it lies still inside the mouth without taking up too much space.
The Billy side pieces (Fulmer pins) are ideal for any horses who require improved stability.
The Fulmer pins also have the effect of guiding the horse’s head which is great for schooling and training purposes, assisting with steering.
The rings are loose which provides a fast reaction whilst still retaining the turning advantages of the full cheek.
If you have a sensitive horse and are searching for a gentle, kind bit, this Billy is definitely worth trying.
It is also perfect to alternate with other bits for maintaining effective communication work by varying the pressure points.
